Vibrating conveyor technology was used to help settle product that may have shifted during the initial 20 in. incline. Product settling is commonly used to shift product for even distribution within the designated bag, or container, for optimum case packing or pallet stacking.
A simple manual divert gate uses beaded rollers to assist in a smooth product transition as the operator redirects the flow between conveyor lines. Micropitch transfers are used at the original conveyor infeed and between conveyor chain transitions for uninterrupted product flow. A slave-driven acceleration section can be installed at the discharge end to ensure that the products transfer smoothly to the hand-pack conveyor.
