Here’s a problem solver. The skewed roller conveyor will move product to one side, edge-aligning it and squaring it up at the same time. The chain box is capped with UHMW to allow the product to slide against it with reduced friction. Rollers are chain driven for positive drive.
Also present on this unit is a pneumatically actuated turning post, or “bump turn.” This post, when combined with the skewed rollers, will rotate the product 90 degrees and re-align it to the side. The pneumatic cylinder allows it to be disengaged when product does not need to be rotated.
