Bidirectional Tables


Inline Filling Systems builds custom bi-directional tables that are very useful for interim accumulation and refeeding of containers into a packaging line without having to shut the line down. Momentary line jams or temporary stoppages e.g. labelers running out of labels can be resolved without curtailing upstream operations. These systems are also useful in operations where parts are accumulated, assembled and then allowed to reflow back into production.



10′ long bi-directional feed table is designed for anti-jam/continuous feed of symmetrical bottle sizes. Consists of two 12″ wide Delrin low friction table-top chains moving in opposite directions. (Can be constructed with 3 moving chains if the application requires.)
