Product Sorting & Indexing - Collator Conveyor - Custom Automatic Infeed System

Collator Conveyors allow for product to be supplied continuously while being discharged intermittently for high-speed collation. Each collator, consisting of two groups of buckets attached to separate drive chains/belts, index as product is received. Once all buckets from the first group are filled, they advance forward to the loading position while the second group of buckets are indexed forward to receive product. Once product is transferred from the first group, it moves forward so it's located directly behind the last bucket of the second group. These machines provide multiple advantages to those in the energy bar industry where multiple varieties of the same product are made.
