Lane Diverter Technology Enhances Product Handling Efficiency

"Lane diverter technology such as Robinson's Servo Sweep Laner is helping producers in a wide range of industries maximize production floor efficiencies while keeping their people safer during this time of heightened health consciousness," said a company spokesperson.

"Robinson brings additional value to the typical supplier relationship through our ability to deliver engineering and consulting expertise along with lane diverter technology and other production cycle assets," continued the spokesperson. "Our automation and programming group focuses on how efficiency can be gained on your production floor, and then develops a plan for making it happen."

Since lane diverters, packaging systems and other assets are often retrofit into existing production space, it is common for producers to face challenges ranging from underperforming lines to wasted space, noted Robinson. "Our project and automation group helps solve these dilemmas," said the spokesperson. "Among our team's primary goals is ensuring your machines are positioned and communicating with each other so you can maximize throughput."

Many production environments evolved over time rather than followed a plan from the outset. "'Trapped space' is a term our engineering team uses when helping customers optimize floor space," said the spokesperson. "We can identify trapped space that reconfiguration efforts and updated assets such as a lane diverter can free up for more efficient use."

Robinson noted that unique equipment like the Servo Sweep Laner incorporates an overhead sweep that guides high-volume product into multiple new directions. "The bonus benefit is your high-volume product can be redirected to multiple downstream resources with little need for accumulation," said the spokesperson.
