Merge & Combiners

combiner

This equipment incorporates hardware, control devices and software into a functional conveyor system that is used to consolidate multiple conveyor lines into in a single line of flow. There are several types of merge technologies available. A “combiner” merge is where parallel conveyor lines feed a wide merge which combines the items prior to discharge into a single conveyor. The take-away conveyor is typically parallel to the infeed lines. Very high rates can be achieved with a combiner if products are released one at a time (or “zippered” together).
