Accumulation buffer

Article-Accumulation buffer

The vertical accumulation buffer combines two or more spiral conveyors for up and down movement. Effectively using overhead space for dynamic storage while preserving floorspace, the buffer system can handle most conveyable products, including bottles, cans, pails, bags, bundles and wrapped and unwrapped items. Suitable for applications needing extended time for cooling, drying or curing, the buffer can also take up surges between manufacturing processes and during short packaging-line interruptions. Products can be merged back into the main packaging line directly from the buffer, although external merging devices may be needed depending on the product and speed of operation.
