HUNTINGTON, Ind. (September 20, 2017) – Shuttleworth, powered by Pro Mach, exhibits DASH, a collaborative conveyor system configurable for random or FiFo accumulation, exhibiting at Pack Expo in Las Vegas from September 25-27. (Shuttleworth Pack Expo Booth #C-3018)
Dynamic Accumulation by Shuttleworth (DASH) is a collaborative conveyor design featuring patented Slip-Torque™ roller technology, ideal for gentle material handling of the most delicate products. This conveyor provides the benefit of continuous motion accumulation while minimizing product damage. DASH offers a bi-directional conveyor equipped with servo-controlled guides – providing smooth lane changing without stopping product. Its robust construction also provides flexible integration with scalable design based on product size and accumulation duration desired.
One of the core benefits of these features is the high line efficiency that can be achieved, rated at speeds of up to 500 products per minute. “DASH changes the way product handling is done today,” states Ken Tinnell, vice president & general manager for Shuttleworth. “Its dynamic accumulation on steroids – offering a configurable system for random or FiFo (First-In-First-Out) accumulation. The enhanced functionality coupled with low pressure accumulation makes this system a great solution for markets like Pharmaceutical or Food where consumer products need to move out quickly but require more careful handling.”
Also being highlighted at Pack Expo is Shuttleworth’s collaborative conveyor system equipped with a FANUC CR7iA/L collaborative robot and Schunk CoAct gripper, the latest innovation from Schunk. The conveyor features its Easy Clean™ 1000 sanitary conveyor equipped with the Slip-Torque™ roller technology.
