Buffering Pallets in Food Production

Problem definition
Stacked pallets need to be dynamically buffered in a food production application. A storage capacity of about 500 pallets is required, which corresponds to about 30,000 products.

mk Solution
Buffer consisting of ZRF-P 2040.02 timing belt conveyors on two levels. The timing belt conveyors can run in reverse to eliminate empty spaces. Direct head drives make the timing belt conveyors especially flat, so that two levels can be implemented in a very tight space. Conveyor 1500 mm in length with a maximum total load capacity of 150 kg per conveyor.

Benefit to the customer

  • Storage capacity of up to 500 pallets without empty spaces
  • Multiple short conveyors instead of few long conveyors for high storage flexibility
  • Extremely sturdy design for maximum reliability of the process
