Metal or Plastic Continuous Product Accumulators
Continuous Product Accumulators provide maximum uptime when your process rates fluctuate. Accumulators can also keep your process running when you need to splice two product strips together. Our accumulators offer either weighted or driven expansion, optional payout tension control, and Festoon or Wrapped product flow. By adding or removing a few sheaves, we optimize your accumulator to fit the length required by your process.
We build accumulators for any continuous product industry, including stamping, plating, extrusion, and automotive. We manufacture our own sheaves in our machine shop.
Accumulators are often used with other pieces of process equipment. Accumulators with Pallet Payouts allow for empty pallets to be changed without downtime. Accumulators with vision inspection equipment allow for failed parts to be removed from the part strip. And accumulators with take-ups allow additional time for reel changes.
