Merging and Changing Orientation

VIC Systems International Inc. is an experienced valve bagging equipment manufacturer creating solutions for customers in numerous industries. VSI employed Omni Metalcraft Corp. to help develop a rugged conveyor system to integrate with their bagging equipment to make one efficient and durable solution for the cement industry.

The Challenge:

A concrete manufacturer needed a discharge system that would merge into one lane from two new bag fillers. The equipment needed to withstand harsh environmental conditions and still perform optimally.

The Solution:

Omni worked with VIC Systems International Inc. to ensure that our conveyors integrated seamlessly with their bagging equipment. Omni provided two lanes of heavy duty take-away Metal Belt Conveyor with knock-down bars for bag flattening. Metal Belt Conveyor provided the best conveying solution because it allowed debris from the cement bags to fall through it, keeping the belt and belt path clear, as well as having a rigid design to withstand the abusive application. Each lane fed an Incline Belt Conveyor that provided a vertical product transition, where a horizontal product transition would have turned or damaged the bags. An impact reduction bar was utilized to break the bag’s fall, again keeping the bag from tearing, and transition it onto a line of accumulation belt conveyor. The merged line of bags was then conveyed up a steeper belt incline to a Gravity Roller Conveyor where bags were manually unloaded onto a pallet.
