Title: ACCUMULATION CONVEYOR SYSTEM AND TRANSPORT SYSTEM
Abstract:
An accumulation conveyor system comprises: a plurality of accumulation conveyors (20) on which workpieces (W) are sequentially transported downstream; a partial load detection unit that detects a partial load that is the accumulation of workpieces (W) only in a detection area (A) that is part of an area that includes the downstream end in the transport direction in an area in which the workpiece (W) on one of the accumulation conveyors (20) is being transported; and a speed control unit that adjusts the speed of the accumulation conveyor (20) on the basis of the value of the partial load detected by the partial load detection unit. The speed control unit decreases the speed of the accumulation conveyor (20) in accordance with the increase in the load value.
