Buffering and Accumulation on a roller top conveyor
BCK Holland supplies "thrustless" mattop conveyors with a rollertop link belt that allows low thrust pressure during buffering. The wheels in the surface roll under the products while the conveyor is also running. Due to the light bearing of the wheels, minimal thrust is built up, allowing light to heavy and from small to large boxes to be buffered without damaging products and losing control. A stopper also allows products to be spring-loaded so that a robot can pick them up for subsequent palletisation.
