Bon Appétit – Menu Display Boards

This month’s application involves menu display boards. Alba’s network partner designed an integrated system for a manufacturer who provides menu boards to one of the top 20 restaurant chains in the United States.

Prior to the new system installation, the process was completely manual with only one or two signs produced at a time. Alba provided a component of the integrated system which contributed to increased production and safety while reducing employee work strain.

The wood pallets were two different sizes: 64 x 48 inches and 48 x 48 inches. The pallets are introduced empty by two different pallet dispensers. Once the display boards are completely assembled and stacked, the finished pallets weigh 2,000 lb.

This system was designed to present the fronts and backs of the display boards to the empty pallets via an overhead conveyor system already in place.

Once presented, the display boards are gathered, rotated and pieced together by a worker to form a complete board. For safety, the worker is only allowed to be on one side of the conveyor.

The assembly process was accomplished by utilizing Alba Chain Driven Live Roller (CDLR) Conveyor (2-1/2" diameter x 11 gauge rollers on 6" centers) and transporting them to Alba’s low-profile turntables. These turntables are 84" in diameter with a 52" effective width CDLR conveyor with the 2-1/2" diameter x 11 gauge rollers on 6" centers mounted on each turntable. To maintain proper pallet orientation prior to the turntable, Alba Thru-Frame-Transfers (TFT) were incorporated within the system as well.

The completed units are picked-up at the discharge end via fork truck.
