Benchmark's Product Centering or Product Orienting device is used to place a single lane of product on a common center line when it is not able to be plowed. It consists of a series of round urethane belts that are fixed at the infeed end and adjustable at the discharge end using a servo motor. This device is used for baked goods or other fragile items that require a specific center line for lugless loading.
