AFT has put a new conveyor system for the frozen section of an industrial bakery located in Bleicherode (Germany), into service.
After packaging and palletizing the products are guided, by roller conveyors with an integrated turntable, to the frozen storage area. An interim storage has been implemented using a Stacker Crane (SC). According to customer orders, the products are taken by a second SC and travel via chain conveyors and eccentric lift tables to the shipping area. The provision of empty palette stacks has been realized via a separate conveyor line, consisting of a vertical lifter and chain conveyors. They transport the empty palette stacks from the shipping area and guide them to the production and packaging sections.
