AC-RPA - FIFO Product Accumulator

Product Accumulators

The AC-RPA - FIFO Product Accumulator accumulates product on a first in first out manner. This process allows the production line to maintain its manufacture orientation which enables effective quality control. The product can be received at any rate and discharged at the same or at a different rate. This feature allows for smooth integration of different line equipment. Furthermore, when downstream equipment malfunctions, the AC-RPA will continue to accumulate product. This will allow the upstream equipment to continue its operations which decreases labor costs and prevents profit erosion. Stainless steel construction and full guarding come standard on the AC-RPA and all motions are either servo or variable frequency driven.

Vertical orientation of the AC-RPA The vertical orientation of the AC-RPA reduces the machine’s footprint on your production floor allowing for greater flexibility
Infeed/discharge AFA will design the infeed/discharge to seamlessly integrate with your upstream and downstream equipment
Allen Bradley HMI Intuitive screens allow access to servo motor control, recipe changes, pack pattern changes and more
Modular design of the AC-RPA The modular design of the AC-RPA allows it to integrate with a wide variety of upstream/downstream processes
AB Servo Motors All major motions on the AC-RPA are controlled by AB Servo Motors
