Buffer systems

PNG - 727 octets

An accumulator manages flows between two machines.

It can be used, for example, for separating and managing flow balances between the processing operation and the packaging area. Even if the packaging machine stops, the processing machine can continue to operate at the same rhythm. The packaging machine can then be set to operate at a slightly higher capacity in order to absorb the backlog of products.

We can provide different types of buffers adapted to your needs and configured for your lines. Some will make it possible to optimize space in height or in length, while others allow products to be reorganized during the same operation: the key issue is to ensure independent product flow between two machines.

In the example below, the accumulator keeps products flat in the belt respecting the same system and can even eliminate gaps in production. This application is based on a FIFO (First In First Out) system.
