Conveyor stops are mounted into conveyors to stop product flow.These stops can be used in heavy duty applications such as unit load handling as well as lighter duty applications for boxes or totes. Typical uses for conveyor stops are positioning of product, singulating boxes, and keeping product from running off the end of a conveyor.
Pivoting Blade Stops
Pivoting blades stops have the ability to raise above the conveyor surface to stop product, but then pivot downward below the conveyor surface when not in use. They can be used for cases and cartons, but typically are used in heavy duty pallet handling due to their rugged design.
Linear Blade Stops
Linear blade stops are popular in case handling and medium duty applications. They offer a compact, simple design that allows for a variety of solutions.
Roller brakes are used to stop roller conveyors from underneath the roller. This allows for a low profile design that does not require having to be in front of the leading edge of the product. This comes in handy when product is back to back in a slug.
Rocker stops allow for a single product to be released from an accumulated train, typically on gravity roller conveyor. These units are typically used in pallet handling applications where several containers or pallets are cued up.
