Dorner SmartPace Dynamic Pacing Conveyor

Dorner Pallet SystemProduct pacing for package machine infeed

The SmartPace conveyor enhances packaged product orientation by receiving items and properly spacing them on the conveyor. The conveyor uses HMI interface to control the spacing, speed and orientation of products. This gives users the ability to merge multiple lanes together without product stops or gates – the entire process is smooth and seamless.

Randomly spaced parts enter the conveyor and a photoeye detects product spacing. The conveyor’s servo motor control automatically varies the conveyor speed and conveyor junction placement to generate an evenly spaced part.
