AC-VPA - FILO Vertical Product Accumulator

Product Accumulators

The AC-VPA - FILO Vertical Product Accumulator is a first in last out (FILO) vertical product accumulator. The AC-VPA can accumulate a large volume of cartons or other product so operators can diagnose downstream machine faults and still have upstream machinery in production. This feature allows you to save time and increase your overall packaging efficiency. Also, the AC-VPA features a pass through design meaning that the machine will only function when needed. This feature reduces energy consumption while not impacting overall operating efficiency as the accumulator will not slow down your line. Robust stainless steel construction, servo motors on main drives, and full safety guarding are all standard on the AC-VPA.

Vertical orientation of the AC-VPA The vertical orientation of the AC-VPA 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-VPA 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
