At CSS, we take pride in our timing screw development. Every one of our clients has unique product specifications that are required. Thus, we pay particular attention to detail to ensure the timing screws are perfect for their needs.
Looking to increase productivity and decrease the need for tools? Our change parts are specifically designed to be exchanged without needing tools to fasten or loosen them to the conveyor system. Our change parts are also designed to keep you from needing to modify machine specifications in any way – effectively reducing the preparation time needed for the changeover.
We understand that time is money and that time spent on changing out parts can be valuable time lost.
See true precision in action with our uniquely designed lane dividers. Lane dividers allow production to be split up into lanes or on separate conveyor belts either to go to different stages of the production process or to divide the items among multiple equipment responsible for the same stage of the process. Lane dividers allow you accurately divide inventory based on specific needs. Our lane dividers can be programmed to divide a specific number of items down each lane.
The drive units are what turn the screws on a production line. They can be turned on and off to allow halting of item movement whilst not preventing the rest of the chain from moving.
Our expert engineers at CSS International have developed advanced bottom code/inspection diverters that can handle a wide array of container shapes and sizes. Our bottom code/inspector diverters allow for in-line container labeling, coding, inspecting or marking access and can make fast container size adjustments without needing change parts, slow down, or line splitting, making them a highly convenient and very efficient accessory to have. They can even be used in conjunction with any pre-existing label or print applications.
Furthermore, at CSS, we understand the importance of compliance and know how failure to comply with OSHA and other safety standards can negatively impact your production and products. That is why we have been so careful to ensure that our Bottom Code / Inspection Diverters are manufactured with hygienic sub-components and safety guards, only in stainless steel and anodized aluminum in enclosures, in full compliance with OSHA standards.
Our Bottom Code / Inspection Diverters can handle nearly all container shapes and sizes, including those up to 4.75” in width. They are designed with two 1/8 HP permanent magnet gear motors, with AC motor options available, and can operate at a line surface rate of up to 125 ft./min. as a standard with options available. These meet the US electrical code service requirements of 120 VAC single phase 50/60 Hz. With these specifications, we have created Bottom Code / Inspection Diverters with controls and variable speed drive that enable the unit to match the existing line speeds of your conveyor while ensuring that containers continue on a controlled path.
Additionally, while ensuring compliance and excellence in quality, we have also created customizable options for our bottom code/inspection diverters for your individual needs. They can include high-speed drivers, shaft encoders, explosion proof motors, tapered container belt faces, wide and narrow face belts, additional mounting plates, and a full safety guard with interlocked isolator door.For the best in bottom code / inspection diverters, speak to one of our engineers today!
More than just merely moving and spacing items at a certain specification, our product orienting machines are able to position items a certain way for the next stage of a process. Using our renowned timing screw technology, orienters can be made at a variety of shapes, sizes, and to accommodate any items necessary.
Our engineers are experienced in designing and creating machinery to your exact specifications.
Mind the gaps! With our metering systems, that is exactly what we help our clients to accomplish. Metering your inventory along the production conveyor belt is a crucial capability for any company.
At CSS International, we can develop lane combiners to fit every one of our client’s needs. Keep your production line running smoothly with a custom designed lane combiner from CSS and see optimal precision inaction. Our lane combiners use accumulation technology to combine products together from multiple conveyor belts or equipment such as presses, ovens, labelers, etc. Moving the items back into one lane is essential for certain processes that only happen along one line such as trimming, filling, and packaging processes.
Lane combination technology is fairly simple in terms of the goal; however, it still requires precise calculations in order for the combination process to be in rhythm with the rest of the production line. In some cases, accumulators will do the trick. However, with some items like bottles, guides are required to push items together down a single conveyor belt line.One of the great benefits of utilizing lane combiners is the ability to divert traffic flow down to one conveyor belt in the event that another part of the machine stops running properly, preventing major backups and jams. In some case, there might be multiple lanes dedicated to one process of the production (i.e. there might be four labelers). Should one or more of these fail, the items can be diverted down to other lanes for labeling. It keeps production going without having to halt the whole process. Incidentally, having the option for lane combiner technology greatly improves production by preventing a total halt in the manufacturing and assembly process.
Similar to timing screws and metering systems, side grip belt units work by grabbing equipment on the sides as they pass through the belt unit and adjusting their speed for gapping purposes, inspecting, bottom coding, and de-pucking. In most circumstances, the side grip is needed because there is an opening or drop-off in the conveyor belt. This is primarily used to exposed the bottom of the item for the bottom code inspectors. With our patented technology, CSS International develops some of the safest belt units available.
One of the added benefits of utilizing side grip belt units is that if an item is downed, it can pass into the opening without disrupting the rest of the production line. The belt can be designed to grip only items that are in their proper upright positions to eliminate downed products in the line which may cause major disruption or even damage to inventory and equipment.

Conveyor Sorters (Vacuum Reject Systems)
Increase quality control without decreasing productivity with our conveyor sorters. Items that do not meet the required specifications can be effectively removed from the production line and significantly reduce the risk of a quality control error. Our conveyor sorters can also be used to deliberately separate items of different weights. Our engineers can design vacuum systems to handle vials as small as 2 ml and as big as several gallons with speeds up to 2600 CPM.
Specializing in Industrial Manufacturing for Over 75 Years
Founded in 1945, CSS International has been supporting the manufacturing industry in the United States and abroad since World War II. Started just one month prior to victory during World War II, CSS International was built by individuals who worked together at a facility that supported the American military during the war. The three individuals, Herbert V. Coulston, Fred G. Shultz, and Harry F. Speth, used their experience in manufacturing to build a company that would support the United States and the world in post-war production.
