Re-Flow Accumulation Table
About MCE Re-Flow Accumulation Table
MCE’s Re-Flow accumulation conveyor allows for smooth in-line product accumulation during downstream downtime events or changeovers. Utilizing a small footprint compared to the large storage capacity, the recirculating conveyor has the ability to accumulate and single file products, controlling product flow to the next manufacturing process. The ability to recirculate products during a downstream pause or backup is critical to overall production efficiency. Positioning MCE’s re-flow accumulation table in key locations on a production line creates a consistent product flow ensuring optimum product throughput.
Configurable for a variety of product sizes and materials, the unique single filing concept of the recirculating accumulator ensures smooth combining of containers both round and irregular shaped. Two conveyor belts move in opposite flow directions creating a buffer zone in a small footprint. The recirculating design relieves back pressure in the combining area, and aids in overall accumulation pressure relief. Products begin to recirculate on the conveyor table and accumulate during a downstream backup. Upstream equipment continues running as containers are continuously being fed into the accumulation area maintaining a steady upstream production flow.
MCE conveyor solutions are extremely streamlined. MCE ships conveyor projects in assemblies with drives, reducers, wearstrips, returns, guide-rails and brackets already installed. Bolting the assemblies together, installing the chain and fine tuning guide-rails to fit the product or package are the only on site installation steps required, making MCE coneyor solutions capable of maximizing productivity at no expense of extra resources.
