RDS: Rows Distribution System

RDS Row Distribution System
Continuous high volume production lines require packaging systems which are able to accept products from the manufacturing process and deliver them to the wrapping machines without manual intervention. SynchroFEED has developed an extensive range of fully automatic packaging systems, using the conveyor technology, to provide solutions to the different situations that can be found at the end of a continuous manufacturing process, for a wide variety of products The RDS concept transfers individual product rows coming from the production line at 90º over a secondary conveying system which is going to feed them to the downstream equipment for later on orientation and synchronisation with flow-wrapping machines. There are different RDS executions depending on the product characteristic and/or production requirements.

RAD (Row Alignment Device)
If the row is acceptable for automatic distribution, then it is momentary hold by the aligning device which straightens the row and releases it synchronized to the distribution system.
RDD (Row Discharge Device)
If the row is unacceptable for automatic distribution, then it is discharged out of the line onto a transverse auxiliary conveyor, by means of the retraction of the primary feeding conveyor.

RDS DT (Direct Transfer)
Rows are accelerated directly onto the stationary transverse distribution conveyor.
RDS IT (Indirect Transfer)
Rows are accelerated onto a holding station and, when required by the system, are transferred onto the stationary transverse distribution conveyor.
RDS ST (“Soft” Transfer)
Rows are accelerated onto a holding station and, when required by the system, are transferred onto the stationary transverse distribution conveyor which is mounted on a trolley that moves laterally to allow a “soft” product transfer. It is specially designed for fragile, sticky or very long products.
RRD (Row Refeed Device)
The rows storage can be refeeded automatically on the last packaging leg. The reefed system is available in two versions according to the row rate and product characteristics and length.
RSD (Row Storage Device - Bufer)
The rows not transferred can be stored on a conveyor located at the end of the line, after the last transfer station.
