Compact Dynamic Accumulation of Ready Meals

One of Denmark’s leading food manufacturers is increasing its efficiency by installing an AmbaFlex AccuVeyor® AVX Dynamic accumulation system. This overcomes any slowdowns at the downstream packer as the AccuVeyor® can accumulate several minutes of frozen ready meal trays from the spiral freezer. The freezer can keep running without causing any slowdowns, while the packer catches up later when running at higher speed. The result is much higher line efficiency and consistent meal quality.

The AccuVeyor® spiral accumulator actually has a double function. Besides accumulation, it also bridges the 3 meter height difference between the high end of the spiral freezer and the packer. So it provides both 90 meters of accumulation belt length and loweration for a footprint of only 2m square. A space saving, simple and effective solution that has helped the local integrator specialist in packing systems to deliver a solution to be proud of.

The AccuVeyor® AVx is a proven concept patented by AmbaFlex some years ago. It consists of multiple, parallel, individually driven, spiral tracks. Each track can be filled and emptied by a stream of ready meals as selected by a linear switch. So first lane one is filled, then lane two, etc. To maintain the FIFO process, the tracks are emptied in a similar order and then merged together to go on to the packer. For more information, visit http://www.ambaflex.com/products/accuveyor-avx

Unlike other accumulation systems available for primary packing, the AccuVeyor® AVx uniquely features: FIFO handling, pressure-less and contactless accumulation, space saving spiral configurations, up to 8 parallel tracks, and up to hundreds of meters of accumulation as required. One more proof of AmbaFlex’s leading position in Spiral Conveyor Solutions!
