Vertical Accumulation Conveyor
A purpose-built lifting Vertical Accumulator Conveyor machine that will allow for the accumulation of product by lifting and storing vertically. Small Footprint, can be retro fitted to existing lines
Built as a first-in last-out (FILO) accumulator that allows for downstream stoppages without the stopping upstream production.
Built from stainless Steal (Food Industry), Light Wash down Areas. Options available for no food industries
Adjustable flights allow for changes to production and easy maintenance
Fast And Accurate Indexing without the need for Servo Motor Control
Uses a Standard Motor and Encoder Loop System to allow for more lifting power and reduced cost over a Servo Motor System
HMI Operator & Diagnostics screen, Standard System is a Allen-Bradly PLC & Panelview Plus HMI. Can be changed to meet site standards
Allen Bradley CompactLogix PLC, Panelview Plus 6 HMI
PowerFlex Drive & Ethernet/IP Encoder,
Safety System Includes, DriveGaurd, E-Stops & AB Guardmaster Safety Relay with SensaGuard - RFID Guard Switches
Movable Operator Control Panel, Swivel Mounted for Access on both sides
Easy to Use HMI Control, Safety, Machine Diagnostics, Alarms & Operation Both Automatic & Manual, User Access Control
Past Project Requirements (TVA-7170 Model)
The system must be able to lift three standard size cartons and allow for the different size configurations and amounts.
The lift sequences needs to be fast enough for the flow of the line.
The device is to accumulate when the downstream is full and dispense when the upstream has stopped.
The footprint available was a limiting factor being a maximum of 2m long x 1.2m wide.
The volume of storage required was for 3 minutes of downtime
The machine needed to run at a variable feed range of 20 cartons per minute and up to 100 cartons per minute, at 99% accuracy.
The maximum changeover time had to be within 1 hour and a maximum maintenance time of 1% production time per week.
The design required several maintenance free components that could run at high speed in a clean room and wash down environment.
A synchronised drive design was required to allow the process to work, and hence the need for a purpose designed and built gearbox using a single input shaft with dual synchronised output shaft.
Product Details (TVA-7170 Model)
The TVA-01 Model was designed to accumulate 3 product Styles
Boxes 140mm width x 80mm height in all 21 rows (11 boxes x 20 rows = 220 boxes
Boxes 294mm width x 95mm height in every second row ( 7 boxes x 10 rows = 70 packs
