BXV • VILB buffer system

Areas of application

  • Balance production output between equipments whenever they experience cycle differences and/or scheduled and non-scheduled stoppages.
  • Balance indexing to continuous processes and vice versa.


  • Lightweight containers with different geometries.


  • Minimum changeover for different size products.
  • Small footprint requirement.
  • On-Demand Buffer System – ODBS. Products flow through a by-pass conveyor until the buffer is required; at this point, a control system diverts the product into the VILB.


  • First In Last Out (FILO).
