Metal Rod Conveying With Ring-Vac Air Conveyor System From Nex Flow
A 2" Ring Vac™ air conveyor Model 30004 is used to convey a 4" metal rod from one end of the plant to another reducing handling time dramatically. The rod falls onto a gravity feed slot which feeds the rod into the Ring-Vac. Air is conserved by turning on only when there is a rod to feed. The rod is literally shot 15 feet up to the ceiling area in a plastic tube, where it is then gravity fed in the tube to the other end of the plant. There it is manually picked up for further processing at another machine station.
