The AVh is typically applied before a; labeller, case packer, tray sealer, or cartonner (or similar equipment). No matter how good your equipment is, these machines are notorious for jamming and causing micro-stops or short breakdowns.
The problem is easily solved, but while it happens your production is down and you need operators standing by to solve the issue. This doesn't seem to have much impact, but if you calculate the total annual costs of all these stops you will realize the potential savings the AVh can provide.
Dynamic means that any speed difference between the connected machines is automatically absorbed in a continuously variable way. The other machines are not disturbed in their operation when one machine stops and your overall line output increases.
The AVh can be programmed to self regulate when to buffer and when to empty the buffer. This also allows you to have less full time operators standing by in your plant, reducing the total cost of staffing in the factory. Production stops of up to 8 minutes can be easily eliminated (for more details contact us).
What is special about the AVh? Whereas any previous two belt accumulator will clamp, pressure, or touch products in order to buffer, the AccuVeyor AVh does not touch the products in any way. Better still, the products do not even change tracks or position, but remain on the same portion of conveyor belt. Not the products, but the conveyor belt changes direction.
This unique, no-compromise, patented system was designed by AmbaFlex by combining our experience with spiral conveyors with our knowledge of dynamic accumulation.
Our objective was to design the ultimate superlative, a new generation of dynamic accumulators.
For which applications/products? The AccuVeyor AVh is suitable especially for sensitive products, such as pouches, tray's, pharmaceutical products, flow packs, and other vulnerable articles that are sensitive to pressure or touch.
Bottles, cups, and boxes are handled with ease as well. Even multiple parallel product streams can be accumulated while remaining on the same conveyor belt.
How small is the AVh footprint? The whole structure has an outer diameter of only 2.3 meter, which is very compact. This allows you to fit the AVh in existing lines with ease and save valuable floor-space.
