Compass Industrial Group offers a full line of custom designed Distribution Systems. Our systems are engineered to increase production efficiencies by reducing downtime and product scrap. The following are just a few examples of our Distribution Systems. There are many options depending on your product.
All of our Distribution System components come standard with the following options:
Compass Industrial Group's Channelling Boards are custom designed for your product pattern. The Channelling Board can receive interlocked product and spread to predictable centers. Channelling Boards can also merge product rows 2:1, 3:2, etc. This product merging can also be used to balance rows through out your system.
Compass Industrial Group's Spreaders take predictable rows of product and spread them to new centers.
Our spreaders have the following standard components:
The On-Edge Row Merging System is used to merge shingled product together. There are many merging combinations (2:1, 3:1, 3:2, etc) with this system. The On-Edge Row Merger is servo driven.
Pictured below is an example of a vibratory accumulation system. When downstream equipment is stopped, product is accumulated rather than immediately dumped to reduce scrap.
When downstream equipment is down, and you have filled your product accumulation area, the Auto Dump Conveyor will automatically open and let product escape the system before jams occur. Auto Dump Systems can be designed with different zones, so only the appropriate product is dumped allowing the uneffected zones to continue operating normally.
Standard features include:
Often used at the infeed of the Spreader, the Traveling Nosebar Conveyor allows you to run several products with different centerlines on the same line. The discharge nosebar will relocate by recipe setting to the appropriate position on the spreader.
Used in sandwich cookie / cracker applications where product need to be flipped before applying the filling.
Custom designed for your cracker / graham production line.
Based on your product and speed we can offer a multiple leg system complete with automatic refeed.
Compass Industrial Group has many options for metering based on your speed and product.
We offer hand loading systems when automation is not the best solution for you.
