Alliance Industrial designs stand-alone or bolt-on starwheel spacer devices for use in situations where a precise gap is desired between products. Our bolt-on starwheel spacers can be retrofitted on existing lines, and all units feature interchangeable wheels to accommodate a range of product sizes. Starwheels can be of fixed arm design, which product cannot be allowed to back up into, or they can be utilize a spring-loaded arm design, which allows product to back up into the spacer without damaging anything.
We also build synchronized spacer devices using two starwheels mechanically or electronically linked. These units can take two incoming lanes of product and merge them into one and space them out as they discharge the machine.
