System Spotlight: Tub Conveyor and Pallet Dispenser

Background

The customer needed a conveyor for accumulating bathtubs and a pallet dispenser in order to be able to place the bathtubs on pallets for their shipping procedures.

The project required the accumulation conveyor to be on two different levels of the facility.

Because of the size and nature of the bathtub both the pallet dispenser and accumulation conveyor needed to be customized to fit the size.

To help solve this problem, we designed an over under conveyor and a pallet dispenser that was customized to fit the needs of their project.
