DASH

DASH from Shuttleworth® offers dynamic, continuous motion accumulation – resulting in increased throughput and enhanced line efficiencies. The versatile DASH delivers high-speed, low back pressure buffering - allowing for gentle product handling and precise product placement on the conveyor while continuing to take product flow from an upstream line for a period of time.

DASH systems can absorb surge or gap irregularities in the production flow and even the rate of product discharge to provide a smooth, even flow on the line. A servo controlled guide provides efficient lane changing of incoming product, eliminating product backlog at point of entry.

Scalable design options allows throughput capacity to be rapidly and cost-effectively adjusted as needed for flexible product flow in achieving maximum throughput capacity during operations.
