Specially designed screw supports and optimized bearing configurations reduce screw whip allowing AGK to achieve higher speeds than traditional technologies when used in extended-length applications. Typical applications include palletizing cartoning pick-and-place operations and other large-scale packaging processes requiring movement of parts or boxes at high speeds over extended lengths.
