Box Indexing Conveyor
Stop Manually Spacing Boxes
How a Box Indexing Conveyor Works:
An indexing conveyor will automatically release each box one at a time at a settable rate by dropping down the tail of the entry conveyor so that a box to be held back will come to a stop against a conveyor bulkhead until the entry conveyor is lifted via automatic control. A speed up roller with then rapidly propel the box away from the following box allowing a gap to be sensed by a photo eye. The photo eye coupled with the conveyor speed change is employed to ensure that every trailing box will be delayed to the proper box leading-edge to leading-edge frequency. The end result will be even start to start spaced boxes exiting the system.
