is a standard control package designed for Hytrol’s
Gapper. GapLogix will set a specific gap or pitch independent
from product length. GapLogix allows you to quickly and easily
customize the controls reaction to your product and be up
and running in a short time after installation. GapLogix is
a proven control package that provides a consistent quality
of performance from location to location around the world.

As cartons pass from the infeed belt to the higher speed discharge
belt, a gap is created between cartons. This speed differential
is known as the SGR (speed gap ratio). As cartons pass from
Gapper to downstream conveyor, GapLogix sets the specified
Gap or Pitch for each product.
GapLogix screens are used to set up the performance
of the Hytrol Gapper conveyor. Each setup screen asks
a multiple-choice question or a limit question that will
tell GapLogix the limits under which it should operate
the Gapper. This can be based on the product and/or the
GapLogix provides stand-alone, complete control for an
individual Gapper for flexible integration into any conveyor
system. GapLogix provides the ability to quickly and easily
customize the controls to a specific Gapper and be up
and running in a short period of time. GapLogix comes
with default settings, but they may be customized to properly
control the range of product. After product has crossed
the fixed speed ratio in order to create a gap between
products, GapLogix measures the gap or pitch, makes adjustments,
and returns to line speed as the product transfers onto
the downstream conveyor. GapLogix may be used for feeding
sortation equipment, weigh scales, labelers, and other
applications where gap or pitch setting is required.
GapLogix optimizes the performance of a system by eliminating
wasted space due to excess gaps between large products.
This allows system throughput requirements to be achieved
at lower conveyor speeds. GapLogix provides ease of setup,
flexible application, ease of troubleshooting, accurate
control, and is fully supported by Hytrol.
