buffer system for product carriers
The products of a production line will be stored at a high capacity on product carriers, trays, moulds etc. in a gondola - buffer system.
Independent loading of the gondolas is guaranteed.
The gondolas vary depending on perfomance, products parameter, buffer capacity requirements in length, width and quantity of shelves.
They are conveyed and two chains from the infeed to the discharge side of the buffer systems. It applies the First in / First out principle.
The loading and unloading of the gondolas can be controlled totally independent. The unloading can be synchronised with the packaging machines. The intelligent mechanical set up in the buffer system guarantees uninterrupted supply from the production process to the packaging. A buffer can also be installed for product over flow i.e. end of the line buffer.
From the production line right through to packaging, ICS is able to customize your requirements.
It starts with conveying - and feeding systems in front of the buffer and distrbution systems to the packaging lines.
The overal handling of product carriers with its conveying technolgy together with the buffer system will be developed by ICS. The buffers are finally part of an entire system, which will be controlled by ICS.
no production and product losses due to production - and plant stops caused by distubances of the production / packaging line.
