Massive lane accumulation of 40+ Yards of Product

Utilizing enclosed pneumatic divert, combiners, dual lane merge, and more

Multi-Conveyor recently built a series of mild steel constructed conveyors for varying height and width products that travel through dual belt merge, enclosed pneumatic diverts, massive lane accumulation; combiners, single file technology, and more.

This brief video shows a small section of the line using a demo product starting at the 2:1 dual-lane belt. Product merges to one lane then end transfers onto a safety-enclosed 1:5 servo roll diverter. The overhead guarding has tool-lockable hinged doors, both up and downstream of motion hazards, for operator safety.

The divert will continuously rotate to fill five (5) full lanes, one at a time, of accumulation, should a problem occur upstream. The LBP (low back pressure) tabletop lanes are 25 feet long, for a combined total accumulation capacity of 125 feet of product. Each lane has a pneumatic end stop at discharge to halt flow on command.

A 5:1 combiner merges product at the accumulator discharge to reduce flow back down to a single file.  The product then moves onto pneumatic metering clamps, roller belting, and more, ultimately discharging onto the customer’s palletizing cell (not shown).
