Intersnack invests to meet demand

Astec Conveyors designed and installed a high-level case conveyor system to help Intersnack meet increasing demand for its product.

Previously, palletising was done manually at the end of each production line, and the cases transferred by pallet truck some 50m through a busy operational area to the warehouse.

As the packing hall area was restricted, Astec designed a system to automatically merge different case sizes from various production lines into one line, using zero line pressure zone-controlled powered roller conveyors.

Long life

Astec introduced a spiral conveyor for continuous, smooth vertical transfer of product to a high level. This has a 2m2 space-saving footprint, low maintenance requirements and long life.

The spiral feeds onto a high-level powered roller system to the warehouse, eventually declining down a belt conveyor onto a gravity roller section for manual sortation and palletising.

The system has cut labour costs and pallet truck operations.
