Route Selection Matrix System
The conveyor route selection matrix system is a solution to a product supply problem...how can you supply multiple product filling lines from any combination of supply sources within your production facility?
For example, an automated container supply/storage system or a blow-moulding plant, where a multitude of container/product sizes are required to feed any filling line. The matrix offers the flexibility to meet any production schedule.
The route selection matrix system uses a combination of automated divert/merge gates and vacuum de-elevator units to supply any filling line conveyor from any supply conveyor source. This matrix is fully integrated into the production line automation system, allowing quick and efficient product/size changes from one central control point. All conveyor guide rail width adjustments within the matrix system have the option to be fully automatic.
A de-bagging machine can also be integrated into the routing matrix to supplement product supply, or as a backup in the event of any downtime/maintenance. The de-bagger is situated at the back end of the matrix conveyors, with the ability to feed any filling line.
