Depending on your product and method of conveyance there are many ways to merge, divert, and combine multiple lanes of product into one lane. We have many years of experience in merging, diverting, and combining some of the most difficult products. We also have the ability to test your product during the proposal process to confirm the best method in which to handle your product.
The basic premise of merging is to create lanes of slugged back to back product of a predefined length then merge each lane of slugged product into a single lane. The lanes are controlled using a product stop and a photoeye to establish the proper "slug" length of products which have been accumulated back-to-back. Once the pre-determined "slug" length requirement is met, this slug can be released and merged into a single lane.
