Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) loading unit
A customized system that automatically distributes product supply over multiple conveyor-lines.
This distribution system is a result of a custom-made project for an IBC-manufacturer. It’s purpose is to distribute inner containers from one supply line over 2 layers of 4 conveyor units.
The IBC loading unit is an X-Y system which doesn`t require any manual control. By communicating with the system that drives the 8 conveyors which the unit supplies, the loading unit automatically changes it’s output positions.
Both the platform and the machine itself were customized to fit in the customer’s specific area/production line. The conveyor in the loading unit was also adjusted to the used product.
For this project, the loading unit’s capacity was relatively low, this was due to other machines earlier in the total production line. Faster capacities are possible, but normally this machine won't cause any bottlenecks in the total production line.
