Controlling the continuous flow of products through the line is critical to maintain efficiency. Product Flow is achieved using a variety of methods and components depending upon the product, flow path and equipment with which to interface.

Diverters & Gates

Product can be diverted using static guides and plows or dynamic gates and paddles.

  • Changes product direction to single or multiple locations
  • Often used to meter flow to specific areas or to separate products based on certain attributes
  • Control via proximity switches, photo eyes and counters is typical
  • Motion can be achieved via pneumatic or electric components

Pushers

Pushers can be mounted at the side of the conveyor or overhead depending upon the product and stroke length required.

  • Moves product from the conveyor perpendicular to the flow.
  • Used to remove or transfer parts to other equipment or conveyors.
  • Also used to create horizontal stacks of products.
  • Control via proximity switches, photo eyes and counters is typical.
  • Motion can be achieved via pneumatic or electric components.

Lane Guiding

Multiple product lanes can be created across the width of the belt.

  • Accumulate large quantity of product
  • Divert product across lanes
  • Merge multiple lanes to a single lane
  • Support unstable product
