Gate-Style Part Diverters

Gate-Style Part Diverter

By automatically filling multiple gaylords at a time without operator assistance, EMI gate style, gaylord filling systems are an excellent way to reduce labor costs and improve plant efficiency. They can also significantly reduce lift truck traffic by allowing one operator the ability to service multiple machines.

This system automatically fills 8-9 gaylords. When the last gaylord begins filling, an alarm signals an operator to refill the system.


  • The two sides of each diverter become the side rails of the conveyor when the diverter is closed.
  • Diverters are lined with low friction UHMW to help keep parts flowing smoothly and prevent cosmetic damage.
  • Parts continue to be counted when the feed conveyor is stopped, allowing the system to continue without interruption.

  • How does it Work?

  • A part count is entered into the counter, and the system is started
  • A rodless air cylinder pushes the first diverter into the open position
  • Parts are diverted into the first container
  • When the count is met, the feed conveyor stops, allowing all of the counted parts to empty into the container
  • The first diverter closes and the next one opens
  • The feed conveyor starts again bringing up the next count of parts
  • The operation continues until all of the containers have been filled

  • This two lane, part diverter services two molding machines.

  • Parts from the first machine are fed onto one side of the belt. Parts from the 2nd machine are fed onto the other side.
  • The 1st diverter opens to allow parts from the 1st machine to be filled into container #1. When the container is full, the diverter closes and the second opens.
  • The process continues until the first four containers are full. The controller signals an operator to refill the system.
  • Meanwhile, parts from the 2nd machine pass by the first 4 diverters to the 5th diverter, which opens to allow them to be fed into container #5.
  • The process continues until containers 5-8 are full. The controller signals an operator to refill the system.

    How does it Work?:

  • Parts are fed onto the conveyor. The first diverter opens to divert parts into Gaylord 1.
  • When the first Gaylord is full, the diverter closes and the second diverter opens, diverting the parts into Gaylord 2.
  • When Gaylord 2 is full, the diverter closes, allowing the parts to continue to the end of the conveyor to Gaylord 3.
  • When Gaylord 3 is filled, the conveyor reverses to fill Gaylord 4.

  • Lexan enclosures and custom chutes contain parts.
