Turntable (TT) - Ring & Cross Arm Design
This device is used to rotate loads in continuous 90-degree increment to change load orientation. The unit is pneumatically raised and lowered with "soft start" variable speed rotational drive to maintain load integrity. The device includes photocell actuated positioning controls to automatically position the load over the Turntable. This unit is a modular self-contained device, which is an integral part of a Power Live Roller (PLR) Conveyor, allowing it to be easily installed into a new or existing plant layout. The turntable device is available in two designs:
Ring & Cross Arm Design: Device has a Rotating Ring and Cross-Arm assembly which is mounted on an air actuated lift to provide 90-degree rotation of loads without changing direction of flow. This device is typically utilized in a strapper area and requires loads to be centered across the width of the conveyor to operate properly.
Device Length: 10' long minimum. Device can feature a cantilever with Chain-Assist Rollers to insure complete conveyance of product through a 1-Head Strapping operation (if applicable) without any "dead rollers" beneath the strapper.
Conveyor Drives: Dual belt conveyor drives with speeds ranging from 30 to 80 fpm.
Turntable Drive: Rotates the Turntable Ring in continuous 90-degree increments. Variable Frequency Drive is provided for controlled acceleration and deceleration.
Turntable Ring: 65'' outside diameter constructed of 2'' x 2'' Structural Angle which is supported at all times at six (6) 2'' flanged Roller Supports.
Sideframe: 5'' x 6.7# Structural Channel with 1/4'' x 2-1/2'' "Drop-In" Roller Support Bar.
- All rollers are 2-1/2'' diameter with 5/8" or 11/16'' hex shafts with sealed grease packed and shielded bearing.
- Unit can feature Knurled Rollers to aid in the conveyance of pallets (if applicable).
Preassembly: Unit is wired and (if applicable) plumbed to a junction box at the factory.
- OEM units can be prewired to the control panel.
Conveyor Height: 12'' TOR minimum with Leg and Device Extensions available for other heights.
Capacity: 5,000 lbs. maximum.
