Interroll introduced its MSC 50 and MSC 80 magnetic speed controllers to the North American market during ProMat 2017 this week.
The MSC 50 uses two magnets turning in different directions to slow down boxes as they travel down a gravity roller conveyor. The heavier the box is, the stronger the force exerted, keeping the boxes from bumping into each other and causing damage.
The MSC 80 operates under the same principles but is bigger and is used for pallet flow lanes.
Both products were originally launched in Europe before being introduced to North America.
