Benchmark Automation's pneumatically-actuated Product Merger can accept two lanes of randomly spaced product and automatically merge them into a single lane. A programmable controller is used to alternately stop product in one lane while the adjacent lane passes through. Sensors are mounted at each product stop to ensure product has cleared before the stop extends down. This alters the normal cycle rate for applications where a single lane has a higher percentage of product. A static plow is used to direct out-of-phase product into a single lane.
Ideal for high-speed merging of product that cannot be backlogged.
Perfect for automatically diverging two product lanes into four lanes.
Automatically rotates your product as it travels across the system.
Offers precise center positioning of your product for loading.
