Buffer Conveyor


Nowadays potting machines have a high working speed, which generates a new bottleneck: moving the filled pots away and putting them down quickly. Demtec have developed the buffer conveyor system, improving the efficiency and reducing labour costs. The buffer conveyor system is used in conjunction with the potting machine:

* The pots leave the potting machine on the exit conveyor
* The pots are counted on the pot accumulator where they are prepared for travel to the loading robot
* On the loading robot conveyor the pots are accurately positioned in line one behind the other with perfect pot spacing
* Once the loading robot conveyor is full the pots are moved automatically onto the buffer table in line
* The pots are removed from the buffer table by the operator of the fork lift or tractor using the fork attachment (single or double layer) fitted to the front of the tractor or the fork lift
