Jonesboro, AR -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/16/2014 -- Jim Sutherin, Bastian Solutions’ Project Engineer, discussed the versatility of the Hytrol EZLogic conveyor in Hytrol’s recent blog. Sutherin explained the EZLogic product is capable of filling many applications.
According to Sutherin, one of the applications is slug and singulate. “The first mode you should determine for your conveyor line is whether to slug and singulate the release of your product. This modifies how product is released when sequential zones are given run signals. If a zone is in slug mode, it will release the product the same time the zone ahead of it turns on,” noted Sutherin.
The EZLogic conveyors can handle varying products on the same line. When a conveyor is in singulation mode, each zone will have a fixed zone length set based on the original spacing of the modules. When a zone is told to stop, it is possible to delay the signal to run the carton into the one ahead of it. This crowding gives the most amount of product per linear foot and the most accumulation for your conveyor.
Sutherin reported on the other applications, including dynamic and fixed zone length, accumulation delay, loading and unloading zone function as well as cascade release, and merge control.
