SmartPace dynamic pacing conveyors pace products and packages into even spaces and groupings

Dorner’s SmartPace™ pacing conveyor takes randomly spaced products and paces them into even spacing. The system is completely non-contact with no guides, diverts or plows. The SmartPace can create even spaced product or alternating batches of product. Multiple lines can also be merged together without product stops or gates.

How it Works:
• Randomly spaced product enter the conveyor
• Photoeye detects product spacing
• The servo motor control automatically varies the conveyor speed and conveyor junction placement to generate an evenly spaced product
