Title: Pressureless infeed conveyor table

Abstract: A pressureless infeed conveyor table for forming a predetermined spacing between articles on a conveyor in order to create a uniform column for a packaging process comprises reciprocating carriages that are driven directly by a reversible servo-motor. By directly driving the carriages, the weight of the accompanying sprocket assembly is decreased and the speed at which the carriages move is increased to improve efficiency and processing time.
