Overhead conveyor system uses gondola style carriers to deliver multi-size boxes

mulit-size boxes transported overhead on custom carriersWhen packing a variety of produce at one facility, managing the various boxes and cartons can be cumbersome and labor intensive.

This vegetable packing company added an overhead conveyor system from PACLINE to streamline their operation. Here, the conveyor track was ceiling mounted to keep the floor area clear while cartons were transported from one part of the plant to another.

This PAC-LINE system was designed to move up, over and around existing equipment. Offering a wide range of vertical and horizontal curves, the versatile PAC-LINE™ conveyor can be designed to travel virtually any desired path.
In addition, this produce packer required cartons of various sizes to be transported on the same line to the packers. To address this, two tiered custom carriers were built to handle the different box and carton sizes. Operators on the packing floor were then able to select from the variety of boxes and cartons as they pass by on the packing line – no need for the packers to leave the packing area to select the required cartons and the packing area remains clear and uncluttered.

The PAC-LINE™ enclosed track produce conveyor offers a full range of standard, pre-flanged components which makes the design and installation process simple. PAC-LINE™ track has a bolt together construction, which means no welding is required and all components are zinc plated.
