Servos - Photo Eye Sensors - ARB

... provide a smooth transition for this high speed merge.

     Winneconne, WI - Multi-Conveyor recently provided stainless steel constructed conveyors to transport empty, open, and full sealed cases on this Servo Belt Merging System as demonstrated in this newly released video.

Servos and ARB technology are used to merge the customer’s maximum throughput of 42 total cases per minute that enter the system from any of three lanes that each are capable of delivering 20 CPM.

We've slowed the video down in one section to point out how photo eyes detect case positions for precisely stopping and starting the conveyors to avoid collision. You will see the cases move downstream will be halted or allowed to proceed at each merge location based on case traffic and photo eye sensed positions.

Among the system’s 30 drives are (5) servos and six (6) brake motors to accomplish the merge requirements, as the additional drives deliver empty cases and bagged product to the system. Forty (40) photo eyes were employed to track case positions in relation to the upstream and downstream conveyors, providing smooth merging at the customer requested rate of 42 cases per minute.

Our experienced electrical team designs and builds the NEMA 12 and NEMA 4X rated systems, using UL certified servos, VFDs, sensors, and other control related components as needed - and on a regular basis.

Servo meger conveyor with ARB and photoeye sensors - very cool.
