Automatic Distribution Systems (ADS)
The ADS is designed to handle products presented in regimented rows. It may operate in conjunction with a single flow wrap machine but more commonly, is used in multiple machine arrangements. There is also the option of having a storage and re-feed facility.
As each row is transferred onto the primary belt they are conditioned by a pneumatic/servo row aligner (depending on speed).
ADS:-The row is transferred to the required flow wrapping leg distribution belt.
ADS-SP:-The row is transferred into a holding area to allow storage and timing, where it is transferred by a servo driven pusher onto the distribution belt.
ADS-RT:- The two rows are transferred into the holding area, where they are transferred by an overhead twin servo pusher to the distribution belt.
