ARB Conveyor System - Virtual Pocket (Non-Sanitary)

Virtual Pocket Conveyors are used for high speed merges.  A “virtual pocket” is assigned to each lane feeding the takeaway.  The pocket is established with an encoder. Pocket availability is tracked for available merges.

Key Features:

Greatly reduced need for electrical field devices to monitor merge locations and upstream/downstream availability.  Few moving parts. Low maintenance. Conveyors can be designed to merge product from 2 lanes to 20 lanes.

  • High takeaway rates
  • Minimal electrical field devices = less field wiring and shorter installation times
  • Very reliable even with mixed product sizes

NCC has successfully developed projects that have automated various operations. These projects have included pre-engineered conveyors, custom equipment, and related control systems. All projects were completed as specified. Based on my experience I would highly recommend NCC Automated Systems, Inc.
