Glide line offers a wide variety of pallet stops to suit the traffic handling demands of your application. They are broken into 4 general categories:
All stops can be configured to be pneumatically single or double acting, to stop work-piece pallets so an operation can be performed. Dampened Stops offer a pneumatic cushioning force to the work piece that slows the impact of the pallet against the stop. The cushioning force can be adjusted to suit specific application needs. Larger stops and higher cushioning forces are available upon request.
Anti-Rebound pallet stops can be utilized as a unidirectional stop gate to prevent pallets from moving if the conveyor belt reverses direction in the application.
Drop-Away pallet stops are designed to work at an LTU (Lift and Transfer Unit) intersection where pallets are required to traverse in multiple directions.
Glide-Line leveraged the open SOLIDWORKS API, the GoAutomate open-source automation tool, and Microsoft Excel software to introduce IMPACT!, the industry’s first in-context conveyor configurator, which combines access to solid modeling tools and snap-to mating functionality with prices, part numbers, and ordering capabilities in real time.
This guide is built to address some of the challenges you may be facing when planning conveyors into your automation system engineering designs. We provide potential solutions to help you solve these problems, plus tips on how to inject creativity into your own systems when it comes to conveyor system designs.

“IMPACTwas easy to launch and update. It quickly led me in the direction I needed to define my design. I love having dead accurate CAD files with high detail. IMPACT takes it one step further in that I don’t have to re-download every time I have to make a change. I love having native Solidworks files to integrate into my designs.”
