Crossing Conveyor possibilities?

What would be the most elegant way to solve the following problem?
I have an upper and lower line, the upper one runs into a buffer and the lower one runs straight out. When the buffer is full, I would like station 2 to feed into station 3.
Currently I do it by interpolating transport.
Is it also possible to do this with a crossing conveyor?

Thank you very much

Maybe try to use the Capacity routing rule and design your PM flow such that you have same processes on both lines.

oh I may have expressed myself incorrectly.
in terms of the process etc. everything works, I meant more in terms of design. as the plate currently only flies from line 1 to 2. did you think you could solve this with a crossong conveyor?

Make sure your Buffer is above Station3

thank you very much, but the process flow works for me :slight_smile:
it’s more about the layout i would like to have a rotated conveyor between station 2 and 3 is this possible? since the parts are currently flying at this point, which is actually not possible in reality

Crossing conveyor + capacity rule + buffer conveyor capacity == 1

Yes, I know, my flow works too.
but i mean the design, in your example the conveyor at the bottom goes down, but i would need it to the right :smiley:

many thanks

I used curve conveyor for the lastest example, you could use curve conveyor or another crossing conveyor to make a turn.

thank you very much, that was exactly my question, whether it is also possible without curve conveyor or corssing coonveyor. but i think then that will be the only way to get the shifting done

Ah, forget to mention, there is another choice.

Problem solved, I could have thought of it much earlier :smiley:
