Recognizing that one conveyor solution will not work for everyone, Alfacon Solutions coined the phrase, adaptive conveying. The hallmarks of adaptive conveying include versatility.
These adaptive conveying solutions must have the ability to handle a large range of products, the ability to easily operate on different input voltages, and possess the ability for an AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle) to change conveying appliances on the fly to accomplish different tasks.
Adaptive conveying must be reconfigurable with the ability to adjust (on the fly) heights as well as line reconfiguration. Due to different models, especially those required in e-commerce, 3PLs (Third Party Logistics), DCs (Distribution Centers), and warehouses, adaptive conveying must include line repurposing.
A conversation about adaptive conveying must include IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things). With millions of sensors on every plant floor the ability for conveying solutions to utilize Industry 4.0 big data is the capacity for smart, integrated, programmable, and connected solutions. These data make the technology self-aware, self-adjusting, and fully integrated with AGV’s and external systems.
