Sweed’s unique and innovative accumulator design includes direct-driven rolls powered by hydraulic motors and guided by a rack and pinion. The timing of the arms is accomplished by using keyless locking devices in the pinion for easy adjustment when needed.
The Accumatic’s roll position is also adjustable via limit switches to maximize efficiency of the arm location relative to the load. Heavy-duty cam followers support the Accumatic arms as they move in and out of loads, and Sweed can equip the Accumatic with either a touch screen or push button controls.
Sweed’s innovative design maintains the crash proof operation of the rolls, while the change to the directdrive results in less moving parts and less required
The end result is a unit that provides maximum productivity, is more efficient to run, simpler to operate, and easier to maintain for veneer mills. When incorporated into a three-shift dryer operation, the Sweed Accumatic can easily pay for itself in four to six months.
