The Dematic Accumulation Conveyor has been introduced for existing operations that need to improve conveyor accumulation performance. It can be integrated into an existing convey/sort system to replace old worn-out conveyor as well as poor performing conveyor.
The Dematic Accumulation Conveyor is designed to improve carton/tote flow and control, while increasing the number of accumulation zones, load density and throughput capacity. In operation, the conveyor minimizes the potential for “side-by-side” cartons, lane full occurrences, recirculation and jams.
It uses electronic sensing and controls to enable smooth consistent flow of cartons/cases, totes and trays. The conveyor performs with precise non-contact stop/start to achieve load accumulation on declines and horizontal layouts.
The most common applications include: sorter induction, sorter off-loading to truck loading, sorter off-loading to palletizer, workstation interface, and general purpose non-contact horizontal accumulation.
