ZeroSplice Technology

Combining the hygienic properties of Intralox’s ThermoDrive belting with the self-service model of our modular plastic belting, ZeroSplice technology allows food manufacturers to easily connect ThermoDrive belting themselves with no splicing required. This increases uptime and eliminates the need to own, maintain, and use a splicer or to rely on third parties for splicing services.

SmartPath Singulator and Gapper with packages and signage

SmartPath Singulator and Gapper

The new Intralox SmartPath Singulator and Gapper is the first and only machine to combine two critical automation functions into one with a single motor and one continuous conveyance surface. The smallest activation zones ever seen in the material handling market allow for more independent, precise control of difficult-to-handle package types such as polybags. And at just 8 ft (2.44 m) long, the SmartPath Singulator and Gapper requires up to 42% less footprint than competitive technology—and 60% less footprint than competitive technology when combined with the Intralox ARB Sorter S7000.

AIM heavy-duty pegs

AIM Heavy-Duty Peg

This new peg allows our standard Active Integrated Motion (AIM) technology to convey products weighing up to 30 lb (13.6 kg) without risking increased wear or suboptimal equipment performance. While specifically designed to increase AIM equipment’s handling of tall or oddly shaped products like crates, boxes, and soup bags, the Heavy-Duty Peg can also be used with standard tray packs or other items. In addition to increased strength, it’s also highly cleanable, featuring an IP69K washdown rating.

Advanced Sorter Controls for ARB Sorter S7000

The Intralox Activated Roller Belt (ARB) Sorter S7000 bi-directionally sorts a wide range of products at high throughput rates. All moving parts on this “touchless” system are contained within the machine, below the conveying surface, providing gentle product handling and improved operator safety. Intralox now offers the option to include package-tracking and divert actuation logic, saving installation time and allowing users to start and stop the sorter to provide destination information for each item, increasing sort accuracy, reliability, and throughput.
