SmartPace - Dynamic Pacing Conveyors

Product Pacing for Packaging Machine Infeed or Other Product Spacing Needs

SmartPace Conveyors

  • Takes randomly spaced products and paces them into even spacing 
  • Completely non-contact, no guides diverts or plows 
  • Create even spaced product or alternating batches of product 
  • Merge multiple lines together without product stops or gates

How it Works:

  • Randomly spaced product enter the conveyor
  • Photoeye detects product spacing
  • The servo motor control automatically varies the conveyor speed and conveyor junction placement to generate an evenly spaced product
