Intelligent Parcel Gapping Solution
Single or dual lane gapping system
This solution singulates and gaps your incoming products. Having developed solutions in the mail industry for many years, Fluence Automation understands the material handling and processing requirements for parcels and letter mail. The Fluence Automation Intelligent Parcel Gapping system was developed to provide an efficient and flexible solution for processing a mixed array of parcels, such as cartons, flats and polybags, with precision at high throughputs.
Optimal throughput is achieved for varying product sizes, while maintaining necessary gaps and pitches of products for devices of dimensioning, weighing, scanning, and diverting. Our system can be configured with necessary rules to adjust for gap to pitch control based on dynamica conditions.
For exampl,e in the event that there is information to be scanned on the front or rear of the product, Fluence can provide a dynamic gapping solution that will create the appropriate distance between each parcel. By dimensioning each parcel prior to gapping, the desired distance can be provided to ensure that there is no obstruction (“shadowing”) of the information to be scanned, while achieving maximum throughput possible.
