The Gapper is a dual belt conveyor designed for metering cartons into merges, combiners, sorters or other equipment where gaps must be pulled between cartons. The discharge belt runs at a higher speed than the infeed belt in order to pull a gap between the cartons as they pass over the conveyor. The resulting gap is a function of the speed ration between belts and the carton length. The Gapper is available in 6 speed gap ratios and features high friction longitudinally-grooved belts, heavy-duty shafts and pulleys, as well as quick-change pulleys for high-speed reliable operation.
