Zero Pressure Live Roller Accumulation Conveyor for Medium Duty Accumulation Applications
The Roach SZ196ZPA Smart Zone® safely accumulates packages with zero back pressure utilizing zone singulation operation. Zero pressure conveyors will use a type of sensor to segregate the conveyor into various sized zones that will accumulate your product. The most common type of zero pressure conveyors use rollers for the transport of containers while using a retro-reflective photo eye to accumulate products into zones. The first box will travel down the conveyor and stop at the last photo eye and then when the next box comes down, it will stop at the previous photo eye not touching the first box, hence the term zero-pressure. This becomes very important when trying to convey various sizes and weights of product as the boxes should not come into contact with each other.
Loads up to 125lbs per foot may be effectively handled on Model SZ196ZPA, with its unique design. This conveyor features no minimum weight limitations. Roach Smart Zone® replaces sensor rollers with photoelectric sensors to accumulate products with previously difficult minimal weight restrictions and is easy to install.
