Bump Rotating Conveyors
Change product orientation quickly and easily with our bump rotate feature.
This is a simple and effective way to change product orientation during the transport cycle, for any operation that requires a specific orientation coming off the line. It uses a roller wheel or tab that can be placed on either side of the conveyor, that when impacted by the product rotate it 90 degrees. If a 180 degree rotation is needed, two Bump Rotates are used in succession. Guide rail spacing can be increased at each rotate point to allow room for the rotation.
- Intentional obstruction in the path of product on a conveyor which causes the product to rotate and change orientation 90 degrees
- Mechanical design operates without the use of sensing devices, I/O components, or powered automation
- Generally requires Guide Rail after the Bump Rotate to straighten the product
- Temporarily slows the product down on the conveyor which is why a minimum Pitch Rule must be followed for this application
