Mettler-Toledo Hi-Speed, Inc: Lane divider and converger
The Hi-Speed Magna-Switch product handling system is designed for applications where several downstream machines are required to maintain package flow, or where you need two or more lanes to converge into one.
The Magna-Switch utilizes a unique roller assembly to converge or divide products in a packaging line. Adjustable centerlines and multiple lane patterns are made with simple adjustments. Hi-Speed's convergers and line dividers incorporate a modular design so they are easy to set up and reconfigure to meet your changing requirements. Standard or custom-designed systems are available.
Magna-Switch controls allow the discharge lanes to be balanced or uneven. The system will react to downstream conditions such as a disabled machine and distribute the packages to the remaining lanes. The Magna-Switch system is available in custom configurations for a wide range of packages including cartons bottles cups and flexible packages.
Patented Jam Free Magnetic Switching Higher Line Rates (up to 350 Feet Per Minute.
