Lane diverter technology enhances product handling efficiency

Robinson Inc. lane diverter

Robinson works with customers to optimize floor space limitations

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.

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. 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’s common for producers to face challenges ranging from underperforming lines to wasted space. Our project and automation group helps solve these dilemmas. Among our team’s primary goals is ensuring your machines are positioned and communicating with each other so you can maximize throughput.

Lane diverter can free up trapped space on your production floor

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. We can identify trapped space that reconfiguration efforts and updated assets such as a lane diverter can free up for more efficient use.

Unique equipment like the Servo Sweep Laner incorporates an overhead sweep which 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.

Lane diverters are just one of many product handling solutions from Robinson to help solve production challenges. Robinson sanitary conveyors and sanitary designs are specifically developed for the food, pharmaceutical and cannabis industries. With cleanliness in mind, Robinson offers standard and custom-designed sanitary conveyors to make the cleaning process efficient and easy while minimizing exposure to contamination.
