FleetwoodGoldcoWyard Introduces its AMBEC AdaptA Series Accumulation Systems

January 22, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
FleetwoodGoldcoWyard's AdaptA Series of First-in First-Out (FIFO) single file accumulation / buffering systems is now available. Accumulation increases production line efficiency by allowing the "bottle-neck" to continue to operate while surrounding equipment is down. In addition to accumulation, an effective accumulation/buffer system maintains smooth product flow, product integrity and traceability, and manages those "harmonics" in the production line.

The AdaptA Series uses Adaptive Accumulation by transforming an inconsistent flow of product of the upstream equipment onto a controlled product output, providing an array of options to fit any line layout and allowing for multiple product sizes and shapes on the same unit with minimum to zero change over.

The AdaptA MB (Mini-Buffer) Series offers a medium capacity, high speed, First-In First-Out buffering system. The unique and patented design of the AdaptA MB allows pressure-less accumulation of difficult to handle containers without disrupting the product flow of the upstream equipment. The AdaptA MB Series uses an expandable 180º zero-gap belt requiring virtually no change-over. As line conditions change, the AdaptA MB expands and retracts to maintain upstream and downstream equipment in sync, eliminating a "snow-ball" effect. It also allows equipment to be closely coupled while providing significantly higher space availability than traditional conveyors. The AdaptA MB is a first-class option to bring machines closer together, eliminate conveyor lubricants and simplify line controls.

The AdaptA ML (Multi-Lane) Series offers a high capacity, high speed, multi-lane, "table" style accumulation system. The unique and patented design of the AdaptA ML allows accumulation of difficult-to-handle containers without disrupting the product flow of the upstream equipment. This is accomplished by indexing "on-the-fly" without allowing two products to contact, thus accumulating in a pressure-less manner. The product's traceability is maintained along with its integrity. Product is delivered downstream in a first-in first-out basis, creating a quality control advantage. The flat, low design of the AdaptA ML permits handling of difficult and unstable containers at unprecedented speeds. It also offers maintenance and operation advantages over vertical accumulators by allowing easy access for product monitoring, cleaning, operation, installation and routine maintenance. AdaptA ML units are offered in a combination of lengths and widths to better fit a wide range of line layout and products. The future of high capacity, high speed, FIFO, single file reliable accumulation is here.
