The employee owners of Douglas Machine Inc. are proud to introduce SmartSelect, an automatic changeover feature for multi-lane infeed conveyors and infeed rails. Independent rail positioning provides for fixed-side, center-adjust and variable width positioning of multiple lanes. Douglas’ new feature expands our portfolio of automatic changeovers while fulfilling market need for a fast and repeatable conveyor and infeed changeover.

Benefits of SmartSelect include improved ergonomics, changeover time reduction and repeatability. The rail positions are recipe-driven and locked in place to +/- 1/32” with enough holding force to withstand high product pressure.
