Wrightfield is an experienced engineering company with specialist expertise in the food manufacturing and processing industry. We design, manufacture and install a range of food conveyor systems, such as ARB conveyor equipped solutions, a topic we discuss in further detail in the following post.
ARB Conveyors Explained?
The ARB conveyor, or to give it its unabbreviated title the Activated Roller Belt conveyor, is a conveyance solution that is employs cutting edge technology to provide optimised functionality, cost efficiency and reliability.
The modern conveyor is manufactured by Intralox and features special technology that allows it to simultaneously achieve flexibility, high throughput and gentle product handling, all while maintaining a low footprint.
Efficiency is at the heart of all ARB conveyors, a philosophy that is applied to both its form and function. Despite the technologically advanced components of ARB conveyors, they features simplified controls ensuring that they provide a user friendly experience.
These features have made the conveyance solution popular across a range of diverse industries and sectors, where is provides reliable sorting, merging, turning and singulating.
A Range of Solutions
The Activated Roller Belt technology is available in range of different solutions, these include:
Turner Dividers: a single unit that is capable of receiving products from multiple infeed lanes to turn, divide and reject as required.
Mergers: these units eliminate line accumulation and related product damage. They allow for high throughput owed to continued motion and increased efficiency.
Sortation Systems: these systems provide gentle and precise sorting of items of all sizes, shapes and types.
