The Flex Flow Accumulator from Nercon automatically adjusts to changes in production flow allowing continuous flow throughout the conveyor circuit. It operates on the concept of an expandable travel path, sensing fluctuations in production and responsively changing length to match variations. The unit offers side transfer at two points-the in-feed and the discharge. At all other corners, the accumulator drives product around the radius, preventing locking or wedging. The company says the unit provides first-in, first-out accumulation and maintains product orientation with no product slippage.
