Cutting-Edge Conveyor Changeover Component
October 10, 2014
Nercon’s new patent-pending Rapid-Rail® will be introduced at the Pack Expo Show in November – Booth #N5345. Engineered to simplify changeovers on the packaging line, Rapid-Rail® offers:
- Single point hand adjustment to guide rails
- Accomodates multipe package sizes
- Time saving on long distance conveyor lines
Now several points along the conveyor, over a long distance, can be controlled from one location on the line.
The value to packaging customers is multi-fold. Time savings with Nercon’s Rapid-Rail® is HUGE! On a long carton conveyor line with numerous guard rail brackets, it could take several hours for rail adjustments to changeover to different size cartons. With Rapid-Rail®, all adjustments are made from only a few locations and affect all points along the line. Change from 32 oz. bottles to 16 oz. bottles in a minute with Rapid-Rail®. The equipment works equally well with any type of grocery packaged product.
Nercon employs a simplified, more economical design onRapid-Rail® that limits the number of moving parts. With a repeatable system, it’s easy to fine-tune the path as products go through the turn. The new design also enables operators to add a motor and control any adjustments right from a conventional control system.
