PERFORMANCE, PACKAGED

Shuttleworth’s Booth at Pack Expo 2015 Is a One-Stop-Shop for State-of-the-Art Conveying Solutions

Sep 18, 2015

HUNTINGTON, Ind. — Shuttleworth, powered by ProMach, features at Pack Expo Las Vegas 2015, September 28-30, two conveying demonstrations that will save a great deal of time for show attendees looking for state-of-the-art solutions for their product handling needs. These two exhibits incorporate an extensive range of automated product handling solutions – from delicate foods to virtually any type of package goods and packaging.

The Shuttleworth servo loop demonstration incorporates fully automated in-feeding, vision-based rejection, combining, and dividing of products. Rejected products are routed out from the conveyor, looped around, and then automatically and seamlessly incorporated back into the flow via a fully integrated Modu conveyor. Shuttleworth will also display on the servo loop conveyor the new ProTech by ProMach™ remote monitoring and remote service technology being introduced at Pack Expo 2015.

For delicate products, such as baked goods conveying, Shuttleworth engineered the bakery loop. This loop integrates a stainless V-Clean Slip-Torque conveyor with a KLEENLine lane switch module. The lane switch is a stainless steel sanitary washdown construction plaque divider that diverts products from a single lane into two, three, or four lanes for routing to wrappers, case packers, cartoners, and palletizers. Designed and built at KLEENLine, a ProMach business, the lane switch integrates flawlessly with Shuttleworth’s stainless V-Clean Slip-Torque conveyor. This combo features gentle product transfers and no side contact, diverting at speeds ranging from 220 feet per minute (FPM) to 400 FPM.

In this loop demonstration a single lane of products is automatically separated into multiple lanes, then accumulated, and lastly formed back into a single lane before being separated again. The conveyor showcases a small footprint modular design. It also features a wide range of different rollers and roller surfaces – food grade, star roller for loose leaf paper, high heat urethane rollers, and more options that reveal the range of surfaces and applications available from Shuttleworth.
