Dorner (Hartland, WI) is now offering a Puck Stop Module and a Puck/Package Divert Module on its FlexMove conveyor system that gives users the ability to stop pucks or packages for pacing requirements, as well as divert pucks and packages into a second lane. Specifically:
- The pneumatically-operated Puck Stop Module is available in two models: Vertical Blade Stop, which is used in pairs as an alternating escapement for pacing round or rounded-edge rectangular pucks, and Horizontal Squeeze Stop, which is used in combination with the Vertical Blade Stop for pacing product without rounded edges.
