Get maximum system throughput with sawtooth merges
Combiners & merges are used to merge the flow of multiple infeed lines of conveyor, typically from upstream pick modules, into a single stream of product on a single conveyor. There are several kinds of combiners and merges, and one of the most popular is the sawtooth merge.
Sawtooth merges can be used to merge conveyors that intersect at an angle. Since belt conveyors cannot have angled ends, a small triangular section of roller conveyor is needed to bridge the gap between the straight end of the infeed conveyor and the angle it meets up with the outfeed conveyor. Together, a row of these metal triangle-shaped sections look like the teeth of a saw blade, which is how they get their name.
