Upstream systems may not deliver product as fast as downstream equipment can process it. Product from multiple systems may also not arrive in a repeatable, gapped format.
Kraken Automation can create the right merging system for a range of products to provide increased throughput, capturing improperly gapped product and re-releasing it with the required gaps. Merge systems can be as simple as 2 to 1, or have any number of multiple incoming and outgoing lanes. Through the use of highly intelligent motion control, material merging at speeds of 120 PPM or more are achievable, depending on your package and gap size specifications as well as the production rate of your downstream packaging machinery.
