Accumulation TableAlpine SystemBi-Directional Accumulation Table
Accumulation table is able to provide large storage capacity. The accumulator stores products to create mass buffering to accommodate other processes. This equipment is driven by two gearmotor which drive alternating lanes in opposite directions. It also uses straight running chain to avoid damage to the product. Falling products will be rejected at the turning ends. Number of lanes can vary from 3 to 9 lanes.

The alpine conveyor functions as an accumulation/buffer zone between machines. It can also be used as an in-process step, e.g. for cooling or drying, or simply to elevate and lower products.

Bi-directional table is designed for continuous feed or accumulation of symmetrical bottle sizes. It is often used to allow packaging lines upstream to continue operation while a downstream machine is temporarily paused. For example, changing of label reels on the labeling machine. The tables can be built in various widths and lengths to fit the space and accumulation requirements of the application.

parallel-mechanical

Parallel Mechanical Traffic Controller

MODU System parallel traffic controller is utilized to combine components commuting on different but corresponding conveyor lanes. The functionality of parallel traffic controller is very simple yet very efficient. When a product or component commutes through this controller, it presses on the arm to make its way. At this point parallel traffic controller has a high priority for the lane through which the product was delivered as compared to the other corresponding lane. In fact it blocks the adjacent lane so that collision between the products can be avoided. Once it monitors a gap from incoming traffic on the prioritized lane, it resets to its original state and is again ready to give priority to the lane from which it receives next product.

Perpendicular Mechanical Traffic Controller

MODU System perpendicular traffic controller is utilized to combine components commuting on different but perpendicular conveyor lanes. The functionality of perpendicular traffic controller is very simple yet very efficient. When a product or component commutes through this controller, it presses on the arm to make its way. At this point perpendicular traffic controller has a high priority for the lane through which the product was delivered as compared to the other corresponding lane. In fact it blocks the perpendicular lane so that collision between the products can be avoided. Once it monitors a gap from incoming traffic on the prioritized lane, it resets to its original state and is again ready to give priority to the lane from which it receives next product.

Vertical Mechanical Traffic Controller

MODU System vertical traffic controller is utilized to combine components commuting on different but vertical conveyor lanes. The functionality of vertical traffic controller is very simple yet very efficient. When a product or component commutes through this controller, it presses on the arm to make its way. At this point vertical traffic controller has a high priority for the lane through which the product was delivered as compared to the other corresponding lane. In fact it blocks the vertical lane so that collision between the products can be avoided. Once it monitors a gap from incoming traffic on the prioritized lane, it resets to its original state and is again ready to give priority to the lane from which it receives next product.

Gripper-1Gripper is utilized for moving the products up and down or to put things on a hold between the conveyers or at the finishing stage of the conveyer. Two sets of conveyers are attached in a gripper in order to transport products to higher or lower elevations while taking up minimal floor space. It holds the product in a firm but gentle manner before releasing it to another conveyor.

Advantages of Gripper Conveyors

  • Saves floor space, reduces conveyance length and entails fewer transfers
  • Creates cooling holding area at ceiling thus maximizing space utilization.
  • Can be integrated with other devices e.g. blower and ink printing machine.
  • Easy to install and compliments site arrangement layout.

Types of Gripper Conveyor

There are four major types of gripper conveyors presented to suit customer’s need.

Gripper Conveyor Functions

1-product-elevation1. Product Elevation
Gripper conveyers picks up items from an in-feed conveyor, transports them to a higher or lower level elevation, and releases them for a discharge conveyor. The discharge end is utilized for placing the drives. Gripper conveyor is ideal for palletizing, filling, packing, buffering, blowing, etc.

2-change-orientation2. Change Orientation
Gripper upended design alters the product placement by 90º. Gripper conveyer collect items from an in-feed conveyor, transports them to a higher or lower level elevation, and releases them for a discharge conveyor. The discharge end is utilized for placing the drives.

3-product-de-puck3. Product De-Puck
A basic de-pucking system could be realized by installing a short gripper conveyor on top of plain chain conveyor. The bottles that have been already filled are detached from puck when entering gripper conveyor and transferred to another conveyor for capping process while the puck is returned to the initial point in order to fill empty bottles.

4-product-reverting4. Product Reverting
Lifts items from an in-feed conveyor, inverts product orientation, and releases them on to a discharge conveyor. The discharge end is utilized for placing the drives. Prior to entering filling machine, Product reverting conveyor is utilized for cleaning and drying.

5-creating-passage-way5. Creating Passage Way
Lifts items from a horizontal in-feed conveyor, transports the product above a reasonable height at a short distance, then lowers and levels out to release them to a horizontal discharge conveyor, allowing enough access for the operator or fork lifter from each side.

6-inverter-air-rinser6. Inverter Air Rinser
Lifts products from a horizontal in-feed conveyor, topples them at an angle of 180º, transports them through an air cleaning or air cleaning/ionizing sector (or any other category of specific process or equipment as defined by the customer), topples them back to their original angle and releases them to horizontal discharge conveyor.
