Asynchronous deposited bag conveyor
June 6, 2014
The Multi-Conveyer 2:1 asynchronous deposited bag conveyor system merges over 100 products per minute from 2 lines into a single line to feed an automated case packing machine. Individual baggers deposit on both lines at predetermined speeds to complete the vertical merge. Bags detected on the top conveyor are “injected” into the gaps on the bottom conveyor with the assistance of vacuum-metered belting prior to the merge. A Rockwell L71 processor controls the system and communicates with Rockwell K6500 servo controllers over Ethernet, using CIP motion. The Rockwell Automation 842E-CM Ethernet/IP CIP encoder provides feedback on the CIP network to gear the servo axes to the bottom conveyor for speed and position control.
