Propack Row Distribution System

Propack Row Distribution System: RDS, 700 PPM PER OUTFEED LEG (25 rows/min x 30 products per row)

The Propack Row Distribution System is an economical, safe product delivery system that empowers the use of AC motors and servo technology to receive rows of products from upstream Processing equipment and synchronizes product delivery on-time, on-demand to low, medium, or high-speed wrapping machines.

The row distribution is accomplished by intelligently monitoring product row position (bars, cookies, snacks, etc.) on a number of motion-controlled delivery sections feeding anywhere from a single or up to six wrapping machines. The Propack RDS can be configured to user-defined requirements accommodating either direct delivery, accumulation or automated refeed back into the system without operator intervention using integrated communication throughout the line.
