Pacline Overhead Conveyors are “Multi-Talented”

Pacline Overhead Conveyors are “Multi-Talented”

Pacline Overhead Conveyors are “Multi-Talented” Overhead conveyor system uses gondola style carriers to deliver multi-size boxes When 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.   Published on www.freshplaza.com , November 2011 GET MORE INFORMATION Your NameCompany NameE-mail Address Phone NumberTell us about your project?EmailThis field is for validation purposes and should be left...

Overhead Carton Delivery System Improves Safety and Productivity

Overhead Carton Delivery System Improves Safety and Productivity Pacline Improves Efficiency in Peach Packing Operations Published on www.freshplaza.com, September 2011 New food safety regulations are putting pressure on produce packers to keep packing material off the floor area. Peach packing operations in Niagara, Ontario Canada addressed this issue by installing a PACLINE empty carton handling conveyor in their packing facility. The PAC-LINE™ is an overhead conveyor system that is so versatile that it can be easily installed over and around virtually any existing equipment. This peach packing conveyor features a universal chain inside an enclosed tubular track. The track sections are pre-fabricated and modular in design. One of the key benefits for these peach packing facilities was the ability of the PAC-LINE™ conveyor track to handle steep elevation changes and tight curves. The conveyor system was precisely designed to take empty cartons from the carton forming area and to go up over and around the existing sorting equipment and then back down to a level convenient to the peach packing operators on the floor. This overhead conveyor system allowed the floor to be clear and uncluttered of cartons and packing material, adhering to the highest standards of food and operator safety. Also, custom carriers were designed in each facility so that multiple cartons in various specific sizes could be conveniently accessible at all times. Having the cartons delivered directly to the packers on the line saved considerable time in the packing process. Another benefit of the PAC-LINE™ conveyor system for fruit packing operations is the ease of which the system can be modified. The modular design of the track means that changes...

Overhead Conveyor Improves Carton Delivery

Overhead Conveyor Improves Carton Delivery When P.G. Enns Farms in Niagara-on-the-Lake decided to upgrade sorting equipment for their peach packing operation, they quickly realized that they also needed to improve their system for delivering empty cartons to the packers. That’s when they called Pacline Overhead Conveyors, Mississauga, Ontario. Although Enns Farms did have a basic monorail system to carry empty cartons, this old system was now incompatible with the new sorting equipment. They replaced the simple monorail with a PAC-LINE™ overhead conveyor system. It features a universal chain inside an enclosed tubular track. The new conveyor track, which can handle steep elevation changes and tight curves, was precisely designed to take empty cartons from the carton-forming area, over and around the new sorting equipment and then back down to a level convenient to the peach packing operators on the floor. This system allowed the floor to be clear and uncluttered of cartons and packing material, adhering to the highest standards of food and operator safety. Robb Enns says that the PAC-LINE™ fruit packing system has improved productivity for their packing operation. “It is such a simple system, I don’t know why everyone in this business doesn’t have one.” Published in The Grower , September 2011 GET MORE INFORMATION Your NameCompany NameE-mail Address Phone NumberTell us about your project?EmailThis field is for validation purposes and should be left...

Conveyor System Frees up Floor Space for Produce Packing House

Conveyor System Frees up Floor Space for Produce Packing House Conveyor System Frees up Floor Space for Fruit and Vegetable Packing House Operations Published on www.freshplaza.com, July 2011 Fruit and produce packing houses can maximize warehouse space by adding a Pacline overhead conveyor to deliver empty cartons to packers. This apple packing facility installed the PAC-LINE™ enclosed track overhead conveyor system to transport empty cartons to the packing area. Rather than cluttering the floor area, the empty cartons are conveyed overhead on hooks from the warehouse. Packers select the needed boxes as they pass over their packing area. In this facility they were able to extend the empty carton delivery line up into the unused ceiling space which allowed this fruit packing facility to free up floor space where other equipment could be installed. The PAC-LINE™ overhead conveyor offers a wide range of standard horizontal and vertical curves to allow for conveying through very tight radius curves and in compact spaces. Elevation changes of 15, 30, 45 and even 60 degrees is possible on empty carton delivery systems using the PAC-LINE™ conveyor.
