Advanced Automation Solutions custom designed conveyor for feeding and containing silica powder. Customer had two silos, however, their existing conveyor only fed one direction. Silica was fed into the middle of the conveyor, and could be fed to either silo as needed, using forward and reverse features on the conveyor. 

Advanced Automation Solutions custom card sorter. To this day, still one of our favorite projects. Due to the speed needed to sort, this project required a lot of thought, and input from various vendors, to find a vision solution that could and would work. Product was a complete GAME CHANGER for the customer, as their growth after integrating this product was off the charts.
