The independently-driven TRAC-i (Transfer Right-Angle Collator) provides collation and transfer of products into the continuously running PIC (Product Infeed Conveyor) of endload cartoning systems. The servo design, rugged stainless steel construction and compact footprint provide layout and application flexibility. Special configurations allow cost-effective high-speed product stacking and grouping.
Products arriving at random pass over a two-stage smartbelt system, which gauges the speed and spacing of products for accurate timing to the sweep assembly.
The abort system on the TRAC-i ensures that only correctly positioned and in-time products are loaded.
As a cost-effective stacking option STAC-TRAC accepts product and transfers to a servo-controlled elevator which stacks up to four products at high speed for transfer to an endload cartoner’s PIC.
The TRAC-i collates and indexes products into the PIC flights of an endload cartoner. Products may be swept individually or collated side-by-side or end-to-end.
The TRAC-i’s small, efficient footprint makes integration easy even in production environments where space is limited. Right angle and straight-line configurations provide layout flexibility.
