Capable of speeds from 70 to 140 bags or 200 ft per minute depending on product size, the Multi-Conveyor system transports bags of powder products from three separate bag filling machines to feed a single tray packer. After the filled bags, standing upright and with the narrow edge leading, exit the bagging machines, the elevated conveyor system takes the three lanes and merges them into one, with a pneumatic traffic cop gate system. Then, the bags are knocked down on their face with the wide edge leading and bump-turned so the narrow edge is leading. The system transports the bags above shop level through multiple curves, including table top and friction belt variations, and then back to shop level.
