The Intralox ARB system is a revolution for manufacturing and packaging plants around the world. The technology is a modernized version of a conveyor belt with the ability to move items in any direction and place them in a specifically desired formation.

The original conveyor belt was itself a massive development for the industrial revolution, allowing producers to quickly and efficiently move their wares across the factory floor and saving both time and money. The Intralox ARB system is a further extension of those same benefits.

ARB stands for "Activated Roller Belt," which is a brief descriptor of the technology. Rather than a belt that rotates around pins, Intralox ARB comprises hundreds of individual, omnidirectional rollers that each exert a specific directional force on the object. Working in conjunction through a coordinated software program, these rollers can move products anywhere.
