Comparing Combining Conveyor Solutions by Product and Application
February 13, 2012
Choosing the right type of combining equipment solution depends on the product, layout and production speeds required for the project. Listed are several options available at Nercon to help keep your production line moving.
Swing Gates: Swing gate systems are pneumatic or servo controlled. This equipment is commonly used to handle bottles and PET containers.
Powered Side Rails: Powered side rails are often an added device to assist products with a merge. Powered rails can be engineered to handle many types of packages and products including round containers, trays, cartons, bundles and cases.
Pressureless Combiners: The multi-chain combining method in pressureless combiners allow for the conveying of round and non-round containers and packages.
Roller Top Belt Conveyors: Rollers integrated into the chain are activated to control the flow of packages in roller top belt systems. These conveyors handle all types and sizes of packages, bundles and cases.
Live Roller Merge Conveyor: The live roller also uses an activation concept to engage the rollers to direct the product. It is best utilized for handing products that cannot handle direct impact, since moving gates or pushers are not required for metering or merging functions.
Servo Belts: Servo controlled belts are best used to control packages and containers for exact placement and precise timing heading into the merge.
