Most warehouses & logistic operations have buffer storage requirements that necessitate the ability for conveyors to accumulate products. An accumulating conveyor holds the product in place before it is released to the next phase in a sortation/production process, or when a downstream machine/process needs to be stopped or diverted to receive product from another line.
Conveyor Units offers a range of accumulating conveyors, from low line pressure to zero line pressure and even zero contact accumulation.
One major project for Conveyor Units involved supplying in excess of 2.5Km of Conveyor Units 24 volt poly-V belt driven conveyor to one of the leading high street fashion retailers. The modules were used to buffer up to 2500 totes with zero line pressure. The totes were then held in storage before being released to an ASRS or directly to despatch.
