Advanced Equipment Company’s (AEC) Systems Engineer, Scott Hartman, described adding intelligence to combat product flow issues for Halyard Health in Lexington, NC with the Hytrol 25CREZD Zero Pressure automated accumulation conveyor system.
Halyard Health is a medical technology manufacturer, with 11 manufacturing facilities worldwide. The conveyors in the facility handle massive parent rolls but were having major maintenance issues that were severely hindering the facility’s efficiency.
Some advantages of the Hytrol 25CREZD Zero Pressure automated accumulation conveyor system included:
- No PLC required for automatic accumulation
- Photoeyes replaced pneumatic solenoids and friction brakes
- Each zone has its own Easy Drive Shaft Mounted Motor/Gearbox package; the motor/gearbox packages are easy to replace as opposed to the old underside drive systems
- Very little electrical installation required
- Zones only run when needed
- Any zone can be configured for loading or unloading
“We added intelligence to the line to combat the issue of the rolls moving as soon as one is picked,” Hartman noted.
