Modular Plastic Belt Singulation Conveyor

The definition of singulation is to take a group of side by side products and form them into a straight line with proper justification. This is achieved typically with three conveyors, each driven with VFD motors. The first conveyor starts the descrambling process. This conveyor generally needs to be wider than the conveyor feeding the product due to the resulting product rotation. The second conveyor finishes the descrambling action and centers the product as well as starting the justification process. The third conveyor achieves the proper justification by aligning the product to a guard rail. By doing so, the product is properly prepared for downstream events such as merging, print and apply, or sortation. This application is also perfect for depalletizing product where an entire layer is deposited and broken up to prepare for further processing.
