Multi-Conveyor offers a series of stainless steel, bolted construction conveyors designed to transport flexible bags for seamless line integration. Initial conveyors transport the product on a slight incline with curve, then over power transfers transitions and a product turner. The product turner can rotate bags as needed, or it can be adjusted for straight running product depending on the customer’s needs.

The product then travels through a customer-supplied checkweigher and metal detection system that Multi-Conveyor has integrated into the line. The vertical f/f/s bags pass through a compression belt to distribute product evenly for stacking and packing purposes.

A retractable noser, complete with servo-driven extend and retract for discharge, gently releases the flexible bags onto a lower belt traveling at a right angle. The lower belt has adjustable, multi-lane dividers that can be set up to handle either two or four lanes of product. From there, the bags move through servo smart belts that start and stop based on the weight and friction of the product for continuous movement and seamless merge.

Multi-Conveyor provides all controls including touchscreen capability, variable frequency drives, servo drives, and other devices as needed while using UL-listed components, NEMA 4 enclosures, and accommodations as customers require.
