Dynamic Flow Regulator
To minimize the impact of the stops that generally occur in the lines and adapt production rates of the machines, we have developed a new concept of buffer, protected by the patent which can be viewed at the following link.
Among the many advantages, this system includes its simplicity, since the input and output conveyors may be part of the same conveyor as well as the possibility of adaptation to the space available for installation.
- It allows retaining or regaining goods in transit according to the availability of the linked machines. Thus maximum line efficiency is obtained.
- Based on a continuous conveying system with single chain, without intermediate transfer, the effective length of the conveyor link between machines varies dynamically. So if any problems arise or the line is saturated, Dynamic Flow Regulator automatically adjusts its length to not stop production, elongating when to withhold products and shortening when the normal line speed recovers.
- This fully automatic conveyor system maintains traceability of production, and is suitable for most products, including those that do not support a light pressure or contact with each other.
