Accumulation Conveyor

Accumulation for Steady Supply Control and Product Hold

Accumulating conveyor systems are needed to ensure a steady supply of product to a machine or to hold a supply of products in place until given a signal to release it.

Accumulation conveyor is ideal for product feeding to a machine at a specific rate or to hold items to be shipped on a given machine until the truck is ready to load. In order to create accumulation conveyors systems, low friction belting for the accumulation conveyors is needed.

Minimum to Zero Pressure

Accumulation conveyor is similar to power roller conveyor. The biggest difference is the accumulation conveyor drive pressure can be adjusted to minimum pressure or down to zero. This is useful for loading, sorting, or picking processes when a long line of cartons have to be accumulated without pressure, waiting for the next step.

  • Minimum to zero pressure accumulation
  • For loading, sorting, or picking processes
  • 24 Hour Quick Ship on select models

Models


Light Duty Variable Pressure Live Roller Accumulator - Model 138VP

138VP accumulates goods safely and with minimum back pressure. Reversible, it can transport loads up to 100 lbs./ft. with as little as 2-1/2% back pressure. Ideally, packages of uniform weight can be accumulated temporarily using pneumatic package stops.

    Medium Duty Variable Pressure Live Roller Accumulator - Model 196VP

    Model 196VP, variable pressure accumulator, conveys loads up to 125 lbs./ft. with as little as 2-1/2% back pressure. With reversible center drive, this unit accumulates goods safely with minimum back pressure. Ideally, packages of uniform weight can be temporarily accumulated by combining Roach pneumatic package stops. 24 HOUR SHIPMENTS INCLUDE ALL 1-FOOT INCREMENTS 6′-0″ TO 100′-0″

      Medium Duty Zero Pressure Live Roller Accumulator - Model SZ196ZPA

      SZ196ZPA Smart ZONE® safely accumulates packages with zero back pressure utilizing zone singulation operation. Loads up to 125 lbs./ft. may be effectively handled with its unique design. This conveyor features NO minimum weight limitations. Roach Smart ZONE® replaces sensor rollers with photo electric sensors to accumulate products with previously difficult minimal weight restrictions and is easy to install.

        Heavy Duty Zero Pressure Accumulator - Model SZ251ZPA

        Model SZ251ZPA SMART ZONE® is a heavy duty zero pressure accumulator, designed to accumulate heavy products, containers and pallets in 5′ zones. The Roach design incorporates photo electric sensors-instead of sensor rollers, eliminating many common problems associated with conveying wooden pallets. Products do not touch during accumulation and are singulated individually off of conveyor. Heavy loads weighing up to 3000 lbs. may be safely accumulated with Roach SMART ZONE®.

          Medium Duty Chain Driven Zero Pressure Accumulator - Model SZA192CDA

          SZA192CDA SMART ZONE® is a medium duty roll-to-roll chain driven zero pressure accumulator, designed to safely accumulate medium duty loads in 5′ zones. Roach SMART ZONE® incorporates photo electric sensors to detect product loads instead of sensor rollers-which eliminates many problems associated with sensor rollers. Products do not touch during accumulation and are singulated individually off of conveyor. SMART ZONE® is easy to install and simple to maintain. Specifically for air clutch operated zones.

            Medium Duty Chain Driven Zero Pressure Accumulator - Model SZD192CDA

            SZD192CDA SMART ZONE® is a medium duty roll-to-roll chain driven zero pressure accumulator, designed to safely accumulate medium duty loads in 5′ zones. Roach SMART ZONE®incorporates photo electric sensors to detect product loads instead of sensor rollers-which eliminates many problems associated with sensor rollers. Products do not touch during accumulation and are singulated individually off of conveyor. SMART ZONE® is easy to install and simple to maintain. Specifically for drive operated zones.

              Medium Duty Chain Driven Zero Pressure Accumulator - Model SZA251CDA

              SZA251CDA SMART ZONE® is a heavy duty roll-to-roll chain driven zero pressure accumulator, designed to safely accumulate heavy products such as castings, drums, containers and heavy pallet loads in 5′ zones. The Roach design incorporates photo electric sensors-instead of sensor rollers-which eliminates many of the problems associated with conveying wooden pallets. Products do not touch during accumulation and are singulated individually off of conveyor. SMART ZONE® is easy to install and simple to maintain. Specifically for air clutch operated zones.

                Heavy Duty Chain Driven Zero Pressure Accumulator - Model SZD251CDA

                SZD251CDA SMART ZONE® is a heavy duty roll-to-roll chain driven zero pressure accumulator, designed to safely accumulate heavy products such as castings, drums, containers and heavy pallet loads in 5′ zones. The Roach design incorporates photo electric sensors-- instead of sensor rollers--which eliminates many of the problems associated with conveying wooden pallets. Products do not touch during accumulation and are singulated individually off of conveyor. SMART ZONE® is easy to install and simple to maintain. Specifically for drive operated zones.

                  Line Shaft Zero Pressure Accumulator - Model SZ796LSZ W/Photo-Eye Controlled Smart Zone®

                  SZ796LSZ SMART ZONE® quietly accumulates a wide variety of product sizes and features NO minimum weight limitations. SMART ZONE® eliminates sensor rollers and replaces with photo electric sensors to accumulate products with previously difficult minimal weight restrictions. This zero pressure line shaft driven accumulator is ideal for numerous light to medium duty applications since curves, spurs and other modules may be driven by a single drive.

                    Line Shaft Zero Pressure Accumulator - Model 796LSZ W/Sensor Rollers

                    Model 796LSZ is one of the most popular accumulators in the unit handling industry. This zero pressure line shaft driven accumulator is ideal for numerous light to medium duty applications. Curves, spurs and other line shaft modules may be driven by a SINGLE drive.
