In certain production processes, product is random, misaligned or spread out. This can occur either on purpose or as a result of the process. For example, in an oven, product should be spread out to allow for even baking. However, further down the line the product needs to be reoriented or placed in specific rows and spacing. The challenge is how to take randomly spread product and create neat rows with spacing. [Read More...]
