Medium Duty Variable Pressure Live Roller Accumulator Conveyor, Roach Model 196VP

Roach Model 196VP variable pressure accumulator conveys goods safely and with minimum backpressure. In a distribution or manufacturing operation, accumulation conveyors are commonly used to transport and accumulate cartons or unit loads so that they are efficiently queued up and fed into sorting, wrapping, palletizing, strapping or various other processes.

Powered Roller Accumulator Conveyor, Roach Model 796 PRA

What sets the accumulation conveyor apart from other powered conveyors is that they assist in the control of the rate of flow of products through a production process. Rather than a continuous flow of products like other powered roller conveyors, the accumulation conveyor starts and stops the movement of loads automatically, allowing for storage and metering or batch advancing of loads. This is often achieved using accumulation zones, sensors, air valves and brakes.
