Buffer Conveyors

BC1200 Buffer Conveyor

Small Footprint FIFO/LIFO Buffer & Reject Parts Sorter

The BC1200 FIFO/LIFO Buffer Conveyor accumulates product whenever a downstream system is not available in order to keep the conveyorized product line running balanced and smoothly. 

The BC1200 Sorter has an additional input for reject parts that enables the system to accumulate reject parts while passing through good parts.

Our unique design uses removable extruded aluminum magazines as the physical buffers, allowing for infinite buffer space and unique use case scenarios in which inline access for part removal or insertion is required.

Standard Features

3 Operation Modes: FIFO/LIFO

Receives parts from the upstream and feeds them out to the downstream in a selectable FIFO or LIFO process.

3 Operation Modes: Load Only

Receives parts in but does not feed them out so the operator can physically remove them.

3 Operation Modes: Unload Only

The operator physically puts the magazines with parts in the system and it feeds them out, but no parts are allowed in. Can also be used to re-introduce rework parts when used as a Reject Parts Sorter. In addition, the input conveyor has a selectable pause for inspection feature.
