Multi-Conveyor settling (or vibrating) conveyors facilitate product settling of filled, open-flap corrugated cases. Single-lane product ends transfer on and off again in various sections of an existing line.

Tim Bori, project manager at Multi-Conveyor, says, “We built a series of basic settling conveyors to vibrate small, sealed cups of a granulated dry beverage for optimum case packing.”

Each independent section is comprised of nearly 8-ft. x 12-in. straight-running plastic modular belting. The product settling process is actually achieved below the belting.

Bori continues, “The settling process is achieved by using a series of square shafts that are strategically placed in an offset position underneath the flat top belting, which causes the motion required for the settling process.”

The mild-steel, bolted construction, open-frame design utilizes both fixed and adjustable stainless-steel flat bar guide rail brackets for double-high extruded-aluminum (w/UHMW cover) guide rails. Stationary H-style tubular support weldment with adjustable articulating feet and a single bolt mounting tab for floor anchors stabilize each conveyor section during the product settling process.

Bori concludes, “Settling conveyors are commonly requested to achieve a consistently level case for sealing purposes.”
