Accumulation conveyors are an effective system to move product through your line as a group instead of individually. Contact us to learn more about how we can integrate these into your material handling and automation systems.
Create Space Between Your Products With Accumulation Conveyor
Accumulation conveyors are commonly used in distribution and manufacturing systems where buffering of work is needed between various processes. Photo eyes are used to detect products in the conveyor zone.
This information is then used to accumulate product or continue transportation based on whether the downstream processes are ready. These buffer zones keep production lines operating efficiently and effectively.
Hytrol Zero-Pressure Conveyor
Accumulation conveyors that create space between products
Zero-pressure accumulation conveyors do not allow products to touch each other while conveying, thus reducing damage to fragile items during accumulation. These conveyors are used to hold products when needed, accumulating in zones while products are moved down the line. Hytrol conveyors utilize EZLogic® technology to stop and start products in these accumulation zones.
Hytrol Minimum-Pressure Conveyor
Accumulation conveyors that allow products to lightly touch
Minimum-pressure accumulation conveyors allow manual adjustment of the drive pressure on the tread rollers, causing the products to lightly touch while being conveyed. They can be adjusted to bring the back pressure to 2% of the live load.
Hytrol 24-Volt Conveyor
Powered conveyors using 24-volt technology
Hytrol’s 24-volt accumulation conveyor utilizes a decentralized drive system consisting of a pancake motor located in each accumulation zone. Each motor has ability to run at a selected speed, bringing ultimate versatility to this conveyor type.
