Turning a carton 90° to the axis
of the conveying direction
Turning in both directions
After packaging, in preparation for
positioning onto pallets
Integration into a roller conveyor
Positioning for code reader
Products that are packed in cartons
at specified batch sizes.
The carton is detected using a sensor,
then stopped, lifted, turned
and set down again.
The turning process takes about 10 sec.
The turn mechanism is based on the
geometry of a four-bar linkage.
The drive unit consists of standard
Advantages of geometry:
During the turning process, the carton
is not shifted sideways for further transport.
Low space requirement in the conveyor unit
The maximum width required is smaller
than the width of the conveyor.
Low space requirement below the conveyor.
Advantages of mechanics:
All moving components have pivot bearings,
thus no wear of the shifting mechanics.
Use of standard ball bearings.
Use of standard pneumatic cylinders.
Low maintenance effort
No marks due to gripping and shifting the
carton during the turning process.
Installation and integration into the conveyor
unit without modification of the conveyor unit.
Low effort when removing the turning
device due to changes in production by
separating the device from the base
(simple pin connections).
The base remains in the conveyor below the
