Accumulation conveyor maximizes carton control, throughput.
The ZoneFlex Advanced maximizes carton control and boosts throughput in zero-pressure accumulation conveyor applications. To optimize flow of varied package types, sizes and weights, the ZoneFlex system continuously monitors and automatically responds to changing accumulation conditions. It features a new, patented neighborhood mode feature that slows down product before accumulation to minimize damage, carton rotation and side by sides. With its ability to control the speed within each accumulation zone, the system incrementally slows product down before accumulation. This feature enables the conveyor to run at faster than typical speeds, increasing throughput by up to 45%. Other highlights include clip-in mounting, easy configuration and LED diagnostics to simplify both start up and maintenance. Intelligrated, 866-936-7300, www.intelligrated.com.
