In Line Case Turning Conveyor
April 03, 2012
The dual chain product turner is one of the most versatile carton or case turning units. The dual chain case turner uses variable speed drives to set the differential speeds of the conveying chains. Based on the chain speed differential, the product can be rotated 0 – 360 degrees. Simply adjusting the chain differential can rotate the product clockwise or counter-clockwise. If a product doesn’t need to be rotated, the chains can be set with the same speed so the product travels straight through the conveyor. The dual speed product turner can use tabletop chain, plastic mat style belts or belting as the conveyor surface, depending on the product to be handled.
In the video, the dual chain turner is integrated with a turn. This system handles several types and sizes of cases through the turn and presents them at 180 degrees to downstream applications.
