Hygienic merging conveyorsMerge at line speeds of up to 200 ft (60 m) per minute while reducing labor needs and product damage risks.

Intralox Active Integrated Motion (AIM) Merges deliver faster throughput and gentler product handling than fixed rails, pusher arms, or conventional labor. Their moving pegs minimize blunt impact to protect the quality of your product and ensure problem-free conveyance. Gentle product handling improves product integrity, minimizing damage even when running at high speeds; AIM technology helps you increase throughput while maintaining flexibility in your lines.

AIM Merges enhance performance across your line, especially in these applications:

  • Infeed to high-speed sealers
  • Outfeed merge for tray-forming equipment
  • Product forming and packing lines
  • Spiral freezer outfeed
  • Inline weighing equipment

Designed for a washdown environment, AIM belting’s single-sculpted and robust design allows for easy cleanability in critical merging areas.
