Cleated Inclines, Rotary Accumulation 

to Hand Pack Conveying

A perfect solution for this Confectionary operation. 

     Winneconne, WI - Multi-Conveyor ( - Multi-Conveyor recently built a system of stainless steel constructed conveyor sections that incorporate plastic cleated conveyor belt with inclines, rotary accumulation to a final hand-pack station. 

     After the confectionary product is scanned by an existing metal detection system, the individually wrapped product is dispensed onto a singled powered plastic belt conveyor. The elevation changes from horizontal to incline then back to horizontal. 

     Trays were placed in key locations to test random product for quality and sample inspection. The trays are triggered to open and close, pneumatically, at the customer's command. 

     The cleats on both of the horizontal and incline belts help stabilize smaller product to prevent falling while in transport. 

     The higher elevated conveyor section elevates the individual product at a load of two pounds per lineal foot at a rate of 60 fpm. The pieces are fed into an existing bagger which then, by shear gravity, will drop newly bagged product onto a lower elevation conveyor. 

     The bagged product will once again be slightly inclined on a fricton-top carry surface cleated belt conveyor at one pound per lineal foot where they are gently discharged onto a rotary accumulation table. 

     Rotary tables are available in sizes of 30, 36, 42 or 48" configurations. The bags will accumulate on the rotary table until an operator is ready to pack the bags into cartons from the customer's existing cartoner. 

     Multi-Conveyor also built a 7' long, 12" wide straight horizontal conveyor for single lane cartoning of product. The cartoner dispenses boxes onto the line where the operator hand packs the bagged product.
