Pet Food Conveyor: Bulk Product to Single File

with elementary cost-effective high-speed transition

     Winneconne, WI - Multi-Conveyor recently built a settling, singulation and orientation conveyor for unpackaged pet food product. We also provided a separate "wrapped, packaged product conveyor" for individually wrapped pet food products, along with a separate full case conveyor for a manual hand pack area.

This particular section of the conveyor uses gentle vibration to settle and VFD's to control speeds throughout the process. We then orientate and singulate the pet food at rates of 180 to 200 parts per minute. Note: product shown is for demonstration purposes only.

Settling or vibrating conveyors are used to gently shift product. In this case, vibration assists in separation of individual pieces for single filing prior to a right angle transfer that feeds a customer supplied wrapper. The product orientation is narrow-edge leading when it becomes single lane. It's then transferred at a right angle to wide-side leading.

A simple, non-powered, right angle changes orientation at hi-speeds. An elementary, cost-effective pitched transfer plate was installed to ensure a smooth transition. See even more single filing conveyor solutions by viewing our entire video gallery.
