Newly Released Video: Upender Conveyor Technology

Wide Edge to Narrow Edge Leading Orientation

Winneconne, WI – Multi-Conveyor (www.multi-conveyor.com) – Multi-Conveyor recently built this stainless steel table top system designed to rotate bag-in- box cartons from wide edge to narrow edge leading using simple gravity with minimal guidance for reorientation.

A single lane slave driven timing belt supports cartons on the right hand side allowing the bottom of the cartons to rotate down counter-clockwise to a 4-1/2″ wide table top conveyor.

We’ve slowed the video down to show how gentle the boxes drop onto the lower table top section. Minimizing product violence at the gravity drop was a key concern for this project.

The Upender uses a simple adjustable deflector plate at the carton rotation point and adjustable stainless steel guide rail brackets for product control.

Infeed and discharge LBP transitions are used to create a smooth conveying surface, improving product stability while minimizing package damage.

The Upender easily handles the customer’s required rate of 90 cartons per minute, but higher rates can be achieved using the same system
