Newburyport, MA - KLEENLine, the industry leader in custom sanitary material handling equipment, is featuring its high-speed Servo Reciprocator at Pack Expo Las Vegas, September 23-25, Booth C-2117. KLEENLine’s customizable system boasts the industry’s fastest cycle times at 60 CPMs for a 42-inch stroke and provides the ideal solution for belt loading and product distribution efficiency. The new reciprocator will also be featured at the International Baking Industry Exposition in Las Vegas, October 6-9, Booth 11410.

The KLEENLine Servo Reciprocator gently and precisely transfers a single stream of product into multiple rows and orients them for efficient processing or packaging. Additional applications include array formation, right angle transfers and loading of ovens, multitiered cooling conveyors, proofer flights, and bakery pans when paired with servo-controlled indexing conveyor.

The all stainless steel, heavy wash down reciprocator system handles a wide range of product types, and is easily configurable for a broad range of speeds, belt widths (up to 72 inches), stroke length and specialized handling needs. The Allen Bradley / Rockwell based control architecture provides easy-to-use, flexible programming for efficient performance that matches specific customer needs. Separate adjustments for belt speed and reciprocator acceleration and deceleration rates allow easy integration with peripheral equipment and further ensure efficient, gentle product handling. Additional standard features include all servo control, optical sensor trigger with learning capability, and variable indexing.

“KLEENLine’s High Speed Reciprocator offers customers an advanced shuttle for high pressure washdown environments that improves belt loading efficiency, reduces manpower requirements and provides superior product control,” said Eric Oberg, KLEENLine Vice President of Operations. “We pride ourselves in quickly delivering high performance, ultra-sanitary solutions tailored to our customers’ specific needs.
