Lekos offers buffer of unique concept, where various confectionary and bakery products are accumulated on conveyors with polyurethane belts.
Conveyors are not equipped by own drives. Drive is static and it is connected/disconnected by clutch to given conveyor only in place where products are fed in an out of buffer. It means that is in place of product infeed onto specified buffer’s conveyor and on place of product outlet from conveyor of buffer. Advantage of this principle of belt buffer if compared to classic buffers with solid shelves, is that running belt eliminates friction underneath the product during filling and emptying the buffer. Conveyors are inside of buffer’s construction transported in vertical and horizontal direction by two different principles depending on buffer principle – FIFO / first in = first out / buffer or FILO / first in = last out / buffer.
FIFO buffer is located between output of products from production line and input to packing line.
FILO buffer is located at the end behind packing line.
