Increases in volume require an efficient and trusted packaging line. Throughput needs to outperform demand, downtime needs to be reduced, and worker safety must be prioritized. When paired with our reliable and innovative Activated Roller Belt™ (ARB™) technology, consulting with Intralox at initial concept planning allows fresh produce processors to automate all or some of the back end of their plants.

Standardizing your packaging lines with Intralox’s ARB technology increases throughput, is more reliable due to our no-touch technology, and eliminates product damage.

Share your line layout with our experts early in your project timeline. Our layout development experts work closely with fresh produce packers to maximize functionality, reliability, and cost-effectiveness of conveyance from packer to palletizer. Intralox is your partner early in the project planning process to ensure flexible and optimized line layouts.


The Intralox Merge and Sorter have become an integral part of our packaging system. They have enabled our 66% increase in production volume while allowing us to optimize the flow of boxes to our palletizing stations.
