Merging Lanes of Frozen Pizza Crust - System Spotlight

This system was designed for a customer that wanted to combine multiple lanes of frozen pizza crusts and shingle for manual case packing. In this system, products first enter at a rate of over 100 products per minute in two lanes on Shuttleworth’s Easy Clean 1000 conveyor ™. The stainless frame conveyor is food grade and designed for a heavy wash down environment. As products approach the combining guides, sensors and in-surface lift grids stop and then release products to allow efficient merging and combining between lanes. Finally, Products transfer to a plastic chain conveyor where they are shingled for manual case packing.
