Intralogistics innovator Dematic today announced the introduction of a next generation, high performance accumulation conveyor. The Dematic Accumulation Conveyor is an ideal solution 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 improves 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.
The Dematic Accumulation Conveyor 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
• General purpose non-contact horizontal accumulation
