Solenoids for Material Handling

Solenoids to divert material

Gate diverters, depending on the application, can be used continuously or very infrequently. In this example, a BTA rotary actuator is chosen for its field-proven long life rating of 100+ million actuations.


Solenoids to Kick material

Immediate, snap-acting response and electric operation are inherent solenoid attributes that  are ideal for interfacing with motion electronics


Our extensive line of linear and rotary solenoids are a predominant solution for all forms of material handling applications. Rotary solenoids, in particular, are used extensively for sorting and diverting operations. WhenPackaging Machinerysorting by weight, dimension and color including video inspection, solenoids kick out and divert product into appropriate bins, shipping or storage containers. Common examples of our current material handling installations include:
