Laning Conveyor Systems

Product laning is often an important step in the packaging of products: in many cases, products must be laned (and sometimes aligned) prior to a critical step in the packaging process (e.g. slicing, bagging, flow-wrapping, etc). In many cases, dedicated personnel are required to ensure products are laned and aligned, and historically the same personnel also perform manual inspection and defect removal as part of their normal activities.

With a Sightline inspection system, the requirement for manual inspection and defect removal is no longer required, hence there is an opportunity to reduce the labor requirements of a packaging line if the laning and aligning functions can be performed automatically. Furthermore, a Sightline inspection system upstream of the laning system is critical since all doubles and misshaped products are removed, which greatly improves the operation of any laning device.


Single-File Laning

Single-file laning is simply a matter of organizing a random flow of objects into a single lane. Sightline can provide single-file laning conveyors immediately after an inspection system and provide a turn-key inspection and laning solution for a packaging line.


Multi-Lane Laning

The Sightline laning system can take a random flow of inspected products (defects and deformed products removed upstream) and organize the flow into any number of lanes. The laning can be automatically balanced (managed) or can be simply laned but not counted or balanced (unmanaged).
