Many high-speed packaging lines use pneumatic paddle rejection to eliminate reject product before it reaches the packaging stage. While pneumatic rejection can be applied effectively for specific applications, there are a number of problems that are inherent to its use in other situations.
Kraken’s answer to pneumatic paddle rejection is in fact its replacement with a servo-driven system/materials handling solution. Our Paddle Rejection Mechanism uses a paddle reject device that, at high speeds, can gently and precisely remove reject/suspect cartons and/or product.
Kraken Automation can design and supply a product rejection system that can achieve speeds of up to 1000 parts per minute.
