system provides two functions: isolation of backpressure & intelligent
feeding of product to the downstream machine.
The compression section
isolates the backpressure. In this application, the compression section is
withstand over 30 feet of backpressure from incoming product.
A sophisticated (yet robust) sensing system
monitors the number of trays between the compression belts and the
downstream machine. This is a real-time dynamic sensing system that keeps
track of the product count whether it is in motion or stationary.
The feedback from the sensor is used to
adjust the feed rate from the compression section. This closed loop,
real-time control scheme maintains the desired back pressure feeding the
downstream machine by maintaining the appropriate product count in the
The control scheme is elegant in its
simplicity allowing the cost for an iQueue™
system to be surprisingly low. Give us a call to discuss how this might
improve your line efficiency.
