Let There Be Light...

Alba Partner Network Member:
A Major Systems Integrator

Product: 1,000 pound pallets of light bulbs (40” x 48” minimum, 48” x 96” maximum)

Application: Integrating transfers within a new AGV (Automatic Guided Vehicle) system located after the client’s stretch wrapper.

The conveyor system integrated easily into an existing pallet handling operation. After exiting the stretch wrapper, the elevation sat at 17.5 inches, top of chain. Our transfer needed to raise the pallets 4.5 inches to meet the AGV height at 22 inches.

Normally, transfers are pre-engineered using pop-up chain transfers. However, given the low top of chain height and the pallets’ bottom board orientation, Alba developed a different solution. We developed a drag chain conveyor with a CDLR (Chain Driven Live Roller) transfer.

To date, at 21 feet in length, this is the longest transfer Alba has designed and manufactured. Plus, for easy plug-and-play operation, the system was shipped fully assembled.

With Alba’s pre-engineered product line, our engineering and manufacturing teams easily integrate into existing or new applications. Since we already have the base components, our lead times and pricing are more competitive than the industry norm. Additionally, we can easily custom paint and match existing color schemes.
