Filling Mass Flow
Handling the mass flow of bottles and cans presents some well-known challenges in filling line layouts. Mass flow accumulation tables and single liners take up a lot of space and can become problematic when operators need to move efficiently along multiple filling, labeling and packing stations. Making use of the 3rd dimension, or using multiple stories in a mass fill line, has been impossible for a very long time. Even lowering empty cans or bottles down from a depalletizer presented a difficult challenge. However, AmbaFlex's development of the first spiral conveyor that was able to handle mass flow products opened up many new possibilities in the efficient use of space in liquid container handling.
