Helix Twist

 

Sometimes you need support

There are several ways to rotate a product onto its side when being conveyed between equipment. For those products that need more support because they are fragile or can easily be tipped over, a helix twist is a good fit.

A helix twist can be made out of table top chain, rollers, or timing belts depending on the product needs. A timing belt will have the most control over a products orientation, grabbing it on all 4 sides, while rollers and table top allow for more flexibility. Helix twists can also be coupled with a section of bypass conveyor, allowing for quick and automated product line change over.
