The WRC is also able to perform with the settling function off and act simply as a standard conveyor, making it extremely versatile and able to fit in almost any application. Using a three-axis motion, cases are settled vertically, side by side and front to back, simulating the motion that would be done by hand and providing settlement that allows for significant overfill in each case.
