The Mini buff er consists of a vertical buff er and a 500mm conveyor, and is placed in the line to balance board fl ow in LIFO buff er mode, act as a line splitter in Loader or Unloader mode, or good/bad board separator in Triggered mode. Width adjustment, work mode, and other functions, are all accessed from the hand control unit, which makes the unit easily managed.
In LIFO mode, boards are received from a preceding machine and are buffered when the subsequent machine is occupied. A board is lowered from the buffer and transported to the subsequent machine as soon as it becomes ready.
In Loader mode, a maximum of 10 boards can be manually loaded in the buffer to provide the subsequent machine with a constant board flow.
In Unloader mode, a maximum of 10 boards received from the preceding machine, are stored in the buff er for manual removal.
In Triggered mode, boards signaled as bad (NG) from the preceding machine are stored in the buffer for manual removal, while good boards continue down the line to the subsequent machine.
