Bi-Directional Accumulation Tables provide temporary storage space for products when normal production flow is interrupted due to momentary product blockage, malfunction or machine adjustment. When the blockage is cleared, stored products are automatically fed back onto the primary conveyor line at the proper speed.
Bi-Directional Accumulation Tables are ideal for handling bottles, cans and plastic containers. These types of tables have been installed between fillers, pasteurizers and labelers and between packaging equipment such as case packers, cleaners and uncasers. Right angle accumulation provides gentle product handling.
The description of operation is as follows:
When a conveyor line stoppage occurs, a limit switch activates the motor on the table. The table's belt moves at a right angle away from the conveyor line to load the table. Temporary storage for containers, excess bottles or cans is provided while production continues upstream. A limit switch stops the operation when the table is full.
When the blockage is cleared, the table automatically reverses the belt movement, unloading the table into the conveyor line. Stored products are fed back onto the primary conveyor line at the proper speed, minimizing pressure by blending stored products with the normal flow of the production line.
