A large dairy products packaging company required rapid vertical axis travel in their case packaging and bottling lines automation. Product was being moved over long spans between multi-level conveyor systems. Case packaging operations required a fast pace and long Z axis stroke to move product.
A material handling system integrator required an economical solution for the vertical lift transfer of product carrying totes from one level of a horizontal conveyor to multiple option horizontal conveyors. The company had very little open floor space, so the system had to be created using mostly vertical space. Macron created a custom solution for this company’s inquiry including a custom MacBUILT actuator featuring a specialized length, custom carts, and a unique pulley system.
