Accumulation Table

Our Accumulation Tables provides customers with a solution to problems stemming from excess product on their conveyor systems. The Accumulation Table provides an area for product to accumulate in the event of a downstream slowdown, jam, or machine error, giving operators time to correct problems without forcing a total line shutdown. Our Accumulation Tables are also valuable in situations where product has to continue to flow through a certain area regardless of the downstream situation, such as unloading hot glass from a lehr or discharging product from a machine.

Alpine / Multiflex Conveyor

The Alpine serves dual roles in your production lines. The alpine transports product from one elevation to another, and it can also provide large area for accumulation to help you manage line flow. Our alpines are available in inclining and declining models, using either MatTop® or Multiflex chain. More...

Continuous Motion Diverter

The Continuous Motion Diverter shifts product at line speed from a single lane into multiple lanes, making it ideal for feeding multiple downstream machines, such as inspection machines or labelers. The design of the Continuous Motion Diverter allows it to handle unstable products that traditionally pose problems for lane diverters at high speeds, such as reverse-tapered and non-round bottles. The Continuous Motion Diverter has a small footprint and can be quickly dropped in beside existing lines of conveyor. More...

Divider Module

The Demand Divider is a module used to separate mass product into two lines and single file it, commonly prior to inspection or processing machinery. The Demand Divider separates product using a nose bar of some sorts, either metal or hifax plastic. The module is set up on either side like a Low Pressure Combiner; multiple chains running sequentially higher speeds pull mass product apart, while beaded (low-friction) rails serve as guides to minimize friction and prevent downed product.

Dual Drag Chain Accumulation Conveyor

Alliance Industrial is pleased to offer its accumulation conveyor for cases and packs that does not require stopping chains and does not damage the finish on your cases or packs. We do this by utilizing separate chains with popup supports in between. Dual chains carry the product, and when it is necessary to stop product flow, airbags raise the center support and lift your product off the dual chains. When the line clears to run, the airbags deflate and lower your product back to the dual chains to continue down the line. More...

Dynamic Transfers

Dynamic Transfers provide a 90° change of direction in product flow without using flex chain. The product is pushed by line pressure along a curved guide from one chain onto another chain running perpendicular to the previous chain. A dynamic transfer uses a special intermediate chain lying parallel to the infeed chain to bridge the gap between the infeed and discharge chains. The intermediate chain also eliminates the problem found with traditional dead turns of stranding product on a dead plate if there is not enough back pressure. More...

Infinitely Adjustable Body Guides

Imagine pressing one button on your HMI screen... Now watch the entire line smoothly, and accurately, self-adjust to your next product size! By utilizing our design on Air and Case Conveyor your personnel will no longer have to climb on dangerous ladders to make time-critical adjustments, reducing changeover time tremendously! More...

Low Pressure Combiners and Recombiners

Our Low Pressure Combiners and Recombiners quickly and effectively take mass flow product and single file it for entry into a variety of machinery. They consist of a series of chains running at successively higher speeds, and are typically jack-driven from the main conveyor drive shaft. Low pressure combiners feature powered guide rails to help break up mass product. Low pressure combiners also come with down product pans to help clear out any downed product before it can get into downstream machinery. More...

Powered Combiner Rail

Our powered combiner rails (or powered guide rails) are used to eliminate back pressure in a combiner module caused by product dragging along guide rails. A powered guide rails consists of a complete drive and idle end assembly and drive unit suspended by bridgework over a combiner. The unit runs a chain perpendicular to the top of the combiner chains, creating a moving guide rail that helps carry product along as it moves from mass to single file. This prevents back pressure from causing product to spill over the edge of the conveyor as it tries to move to single file. Powered combiner rails are available with several variations of idle end take-up, either jackscrew, spring-tensioned, or pneumatic. More...

Tilted Slow-Down Modules

Our Tilted Slow Down Modules are used to help our customers smoothly change product flow from single file to mass flow. Slow Down Modules consist of a series of chains running at successively slower speeds, and are typically jack-driven from the main conveyor drive shaft. We frequently tilt our slow down modules minimize pressure as the product nests. Tilting the modules also helps by causing downed product to roll off the side of the module into down product pans on the side. Slow Down Modules are ideal for use after product is individually processed by production machinery, such inspection machines, fillers, and labelers; going back to mass flow saves floor space and reduces line speeds.
