Optimizing Conveyor Efficiency and Multi-functionality with Accessories

Optimizing Conveyor Efficiency and Multi-functionality with Accessories

November 19, 2021

Conveyors can be customized to provide specific functionalities through the use of accessories. Selecting the right accessories is key to ensuring that your operations are as efficient and productive as possible.

There are a wide variety of conveyor accessories to choose from.

Here are some accessories you can use for conveyor systems:

  1. Y-Switches:

    This is an accessory used to divert products from one line to another, usually at either 45- or 90-degree curves. The switches can either be manually operated or pneumatic. Guard rails can also be used to add extra security and stability.
  2. Pushers:

    Pushers are a great accessory for any conveyor system that utilizes sortation. Products can be transferred to reject or inspection stations via a pusher while still on the line, and as such the flow of the conveyor is not interrupted.
  3. Diverters:

    Automatic diverters help transport products from one line to an adjacent line, but their gentle operations ensure that product damage is avoided. This accessory can be used in accumulating conveyors.
  4. O-Ring Transfers:

    This type of transfer can move products onto parallel and adjacent lines. They are able to grip onto each product, then using linear bearings to both raise and lower the product. At Norpak Handling, you can acquire O-ring transfers that can handle a maximum unit load of 75 lbs.
  5. ARB Switches:

    ARB stands for Activated Roller Belt. These switches can divert products from one or multiple infeed lines to multiple outfeed lines. This switch can handle up to 50 products a minute of varying sizes and weights.
  6. ARB Merger:

    Merge accessories can help curb line jams and slowdowns and improve the circulation of a conveyor line. Perfect for accumulation conveyors, this accessory can smoothly merge two or more lines into a single line without damaging any products or causing further jams.

When used properly, these accessories can greatly improve the productivity of any conveyor system. Not only do they provide specific functionalities, but they can also help curb existing issues in your conveyor system such as line jams. If you have specific requests for functions or specific measurements that you need to be accommodated, you only need to get in touch with the representatives at Norpak Handling and we can provide you with a custom solution.
