In some production lines it is needed to change the position of the products during the packaging process. Manually turning the products is very time consuming and increases the labour costs. With a product rotation conveyor of Royal Apollo, products are easily and safely turned automatically.
Apollo’s solutions to rotating products
In addition to our vertical transport solutions, we developed a product rotation conveyor to rotate products upside down or to one side without delay or product damage. We even call it the Product Twister.
An innovative conveyor for inline rotating of products is the Apollo Product Twister. More specific, it is a conveyor which turns products 90, 180, 270, and even back 360 degrees to enable efficient handling and accurate processing. The Product Twister ensures a continuous motion, in order to create the most efficient transporting and packaging process.
How does the Product Rotation Conveyor work?
The Product Rotation Conveyor is a Belt Conveyor with a belt twist, that shifts the belt from a horizontal to an upright position, or the other way around. The products can be smoothly rotated clockwise or counter clockwise. In addition, it can accommodate a wide range of load sizes without adjustment, which is useful if there are different products that need to be twisted inline. Another important function is that the machine can also be used to stir the content of certain products in cases/boxes, like special chemicals/syrups to ensure proper mixing prior further usage of these products downstream. The machine operates smoothly due to low friction and has a small footprint, which is perfect when space is limited.
