Conveyor diverters, also known as diverting gates or sorting gates, are essential components in conveyor systems designed to guide and redirect items or products onto alternative pathways. These versatile mechanisms play a crucial role in streamlining material handling processes by selectively diverting items from the main conveyor line to designated chutes, lanes, or conveyors based on predetermined criteria. Conveyor diverters are utilized in various industries, including distribution centers, manufacturing facilities, and airports, to efficiently sort and direct items for packaging, quality control, distribution, or other specific purposes.
Equipped with sensors, actuators, and intelligent control systems, conveyor diverters can make split-second decisions to ensure accurate and efficient sorting. They enhance productivity by automating the separation of products, reducing manual intervention, and minimizing the risk of errors. Conveyor diverters offer flexibility in routing items, accommodating various package sizes, weights, and configurations. With their ability to handle high throughput rates and adapt to changing requirements, conveyor diverters contribute to optimized material flow and improved overall operational efficiency in modern conveyor systems.
Conveyor traffic cops control product flow on conveyor systems, allowing traffic to travel freely without interference from other conveyor lines. Eliminate the risk of colliding products and damage to merchandise with the help from a conveyor traffic cop offered by ASI.
A product will hit the first arm of the traffic control cop before moving forward, while the other arm locks, preventing product from coming through on another conveyor. Take control of conveyor traffic, and forget about additional labor.
Conveyor pushers and diverters divide the flow of product into predetermined lanes. Diverters can also be used to merge multiple conveyor lines into one.
Pneumatic conveyor pushers and pullers are used in light carton, low line back pressure conveyor systems. Pushers and pullers are often mounted at the end of a line, directing cartons to different work stations.Pneumatic diverters are designed to push cartons off a conveyor if a bar code is undetected, or if the weight of a carton is inaccurate.
