When moving products down a manufacturing line, there may be places that experience backups and cause the entire line to slow or shut down. To avoid having to stop production or redirect product, a recirculating table can create a space to accumulate product and control the flow to the next process.
Recirculating tables are created with two or more slat conveyors side by side with the belts moving in opposite directions to create a continuous flow of product. These systems can run unattended and don’t require electronic controls.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfdOrMOYfj4&w=560&h=315]
Systems can be designed to move the built up products down to a singular line or accumulate products until they can be handled by employees. Recirculating conveyors also work well for delicate products because they minimise back pressure on the conveyor and thus reduce product loss/damaged products.
Each recirculating table is completely customised to meet the customer’s specific needs. We work with the customer to create a system based on product weight, shape, material, speed requirements and more.
