New conveyor capability can reach up to 495 feet-per-minute.
May 29, 2013
Although most conveying systems used for end-of-line packaging operations run at less than 300 feet-per-minute, faster conveyor speeds could sometimes be utilized on straight conveyor sections for high-volume throughput of lightweight, low-profile products. Shuttleworth, Inc., which provides specialty conveyor systems for packaging lines, has now released high-speed chain-driven conveyors capable of reaching speeds up to 495 FPM while maintaining product stability. This allows manufacturers added versatility on their packaging lines, should they require the added conveyor speed.
