The 196ZPA SMART ZONE™ live roller conveyor accumulates packages using zero backpressure and zone singulation operation.
The most common type of zero pressure conveyors use rollers to transport containers while using a retro-reflective photo eye to accumulate the products into zones. The first box travels down the conveyor and stops at the last photo-eye. The next box comes down the conveyor and stops at the previous photo-eye, not touching the first box, hence the term zero-pressure. This is very important when trying to convey various sizes and weights of product as the boxes should not come into contact with each other.
