ARB Overview

Activated Roller Belt (ARB) technology utilizes a modular plastic belt with integrated rollers. As product is conveyed, friction surfaces beneath the belt activates the integrated rollers to divert, align, or change orientation of a wide range of products. Capable of diverting product angularly up to 90 degrees.

ARB technology can be used a variety of uses including:
  • Sortation - Sort products for routing or shipping.
  • Singulator - Moving group product in to a single file or edge aligned line to reduce jamming, and improving sorter function and throughput.
  • Switches - Separate product from a single flow line into multiple lines.
  • Merging - Combine product from several lines whether parallel, perpendicular or angular from one another into a single flow line.
Rate: Approximately 2,000 units/hr
