for Multilane Applications Drop Gate Reject

Removes packaged products from production lines identified as non-conformant with quality specifications. This mechanism can be used on most packaged products, some unpackaged products and is perfect for multilane applications.

Reject Systems for X-ray Machines

The drop gate reject device consists of pneumatic cylinders that pivot a gate down, dropping any products that do not meet predetermined quality specifications in the direction of the reject receptacle. The drop gate reject mechanism is incredibly versatile and ideal for removing faulty packages of varying weights such as, vacuum-packed pouches, cardboard cartons, blocks of cheese, bags of product and chain packages. Drop gate rejects are also available for multiple lane applications.
