Conveyor for Wide Loads
Product Details: Item No. 159
Capacity: 6,000 lbs. unit load
Use: For conveying and accumulating heavy loads up to 8’ wide
Material: Stainless, carbon, or galvanized steel construction
Accumulation conveyor allows the gathering of products in-line and holds them until needed. The photo shows a custom-made, double width, belt driven live roller accumulation conveyor, built to transport and accumulate eight foot wide loads of corrugated material weighing up to 6,000 lbs. There are four, zero pressure zones built into this conveyor to prevent loads from contacting each other. It is also a low profile unit at, 13″ off the floor. Two live roller conveyors, each four foot wide, were built on a common frame to get the needed results.
Description of Operation
This is a custom-made, double width, belt driven live roller, accumulation conveyor.
- A corrugated machine discharges each load onto the accumulation conveyor
- Each load transports to the next available zone in accumulation
- Inspectors look and remove the unfit sheets before the final wrapping operation
- Each wide load accumulates and stops 18″ behind the load in front of it
- Inspectors drop planks across the conveyor to allow them to walk across it.
- Each accumulation zone primes the next empty zone to stop a load when it arrives
- Zones are mechanically disengaged, signaled by the previous vacant zone
This is a custom-made, double width, belt driven live roller, accumulation conveyor. It operates in a corrugated plant twenty-four hours per day, seven days a week.
