The Apollo Product Twister is an innovative conveyor for inline rotating of cases and other unitized loads. This conveyor is useful in packaging lines where products need to be rotated upside down or to one side without delay or product damage, and is a great solution in the internal packaging chain.
Why choose the Product Twister?
- Speed: 40m/minute;
- Loads up to 50 kg/m;
- Small footprint;
- Low friction operation;
- Rotates products 90, 180 or 270 degrees.
How does it work?
The Apollo Product Twister is in fact a Horizontal Belt Conveyor with a conveyor belt twist, that shifts the belt from a horizontal to an upright position, or the other way around. This is useful when the position of the product needs to change during the packaging process. Without the Product Twister, manual handling might increase labor costs, damage to the product or delay in the process. The Product Twister ensures a continuous motion, in order to create the most efficient transporting and packaging process.
The loads can be rotated 90 degrees or 180 degrees in a continuous motion. the products can be rotated clockwise or counter clockwise. The Product Twister can accommodate a wide range of load sizes without adjustment, which is useful if there are different products that need to be twisted inline. However, the Product Twister has another useful function: it 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 Product Twister is available with different belt widths, such as 200, 300, 400, 500 and 600 mm. The length of one 90° unit is 3000 mm, while the length of one 180° unit is 5600 mm. Depending on the product dimensions, this length can be changed. The Product Twister operates smoothly due to low friction and has a small footprint, which is perfect when space is limited. The speed of the Twisted Conveyor Belt is around 40 meters a minute and it can transport 50 kilograms of product per meter.
