Conveyor Inquiries - for fast assistance
Accumulation conveyors hold product in place until given a signal to release it. Applications include feeding product to a machine such as a case sealer at a specified rate, or to hold all items to be shipped on a given truck until that truck is ready to be loaded. Accumulation is similar to power roller conveyor with important exceptions. The drive pressure on the product can be adjusted to a minimum, or even eliminated altogether. This is useful when a long line of cartons have to be accumulated without pressure so that they can be utilized in a process such as loading, sorting, taping, strapping, palletizing, or picking. Minimum and Zero-pressure Systems are available.
