Queue, buffer & zone products consistently for improved throughput
Consistently and efficiently timed transportation of unit loads through automated systems means more reliable throughput capabilities for operations. Whether a distribution or manufacturing operation, accumulation conveyors are commonly used to transport and accumulate cartons or unit loads so that they are efficiently queued up and fed into sorting, wrapping, palletizing, strapping or various other processes.
Accumulation conveyor technology, including zero or minimum pressure accumulation, provide a buffer zone where a steady supply of product can be oriented or held back when downstream processes are not ready. In addition, they can be used to smooth out fluctuations in production line rates.
