Mettler-Toledo Hi-Speed, Inc: Mettler-Toledo Hi-Speed, Inc: Servo Smart Belt System
Hi-Speed's Servo Smart Belt System offers a highly reliable and cost-effective way to converge two, three, or four lanes of unevenly spaced packages into one evenly spaced lane for the purpose of scanning, weighing, inspecting, wrapping and case packing.
The system consists of a two-stage Smart Belt conveyor assembly which instantaneously creates the appropriate spacing between random packages. The converge conveyor funnels each package into a single lane at the desired speed. All sequencing and product positioning is accomplished with high-performance servo motors sensors and controllers. Package damage and contamination is avoided because no hardware is required to touch the package for positioning.
The Servo Smart Belt System can accept a wide variety of different package types of various dimensions and can operate at various speeds to meet the throughput requirements of your line. For example a 9-inch tray with three lanes converging to one can flow through the system as fast as 120 ppm. Fewer lanes and shorter packages can result in higher rates. The System is designed for a washdown environment following USDA meat and poultry design guidelines. It includes a heavy-duty stainless steel frame and easy-to-clean removable belts.
