Who Knew Product Settling Was This Simple?

Multi-Conveyor recently built a series of six settling (or vibrating) conveyors to facilitate product settling of filled, open-flap corrugated cases. Single lane product will end transfer on and off again in various sections of the customer’s existing line.

Tim Bori, Project Manager at Multi-Conveyor, said, “We built a series of basic settling conveyors to vibrate small, sealed cups of a granulated dry beverage for optimum case packing.”

Each independent section is comprised of straight running plastic modular belting that is nearly 8-feet by 12 inches. The product settling process is actually achieved below the belting.

Tim continues, The settling process is achieved by using a series of square shafts that are strategically placed in an offset position underneath the flat top belting, which causes the motion required for the settling process.”

The mild-steel, bolted construction, open frame design utilized both fixed and adjustable stainless steel flat bar guide rail brackets for double high extruded aluminum guide rails with a UHMW cover).

Stationary H-style tubular support weldment with adjustable articulating feet and single-bolt mounting tab for floor anchors stabilize each conveyor section during the product settling process.

Tim concludes, “Settling conveyors are commonly requested to achieve a consistently level case for sealing purposes.”
