Pneumatic 90-Degree Conveyor

Multi-Conveyor, Winneconne, Wis., introduced a pneumatic 90-degree transfer designed for a packaged meat operation that required products that are two or three Multi-Conveyor 90 degree transfer pusherabreast to be transferred 90 degrees at 20 cycles per minute. 

The application required a change in orientation from the narrow edge leading from the upstream equipment to the wide edge leading for the downstream equipment. It also needed to combine three lanes of product down to a single flow. This conveyor meets both requirements thanks to a box-in-box-style pneumatic pusher design.

The device results in the elimination of pinch points associated with the mechanism itself. The adjacent rails and the product end-stop are removable. The stainless-steel cover over the assembly is detachable for access to removable air cylinder and UHMW slide guides for easy cleaning.

The pneumatic 90-degree push transfer used for irregular-shaped products with uneven wraps can also be used for traditional carton and case handling applications. The pusher can be custom designed for various product sizes, weights and rates, as well as for the particular environment associated with the application.
