End Matching Transfer Conveyor

End Matching Transfer Conveyor WideEnd Matching Transfer Conveyor

Description of Application

This conveyor is designed for receiving material from a planer, or similar, and end matching it before transferring laterally.  Even ending, opposite the processing machine, poses a challenge when variable material lengths are introduced.  One batch may be transferring, while the next batch is entering the conveyor.  This issue was overcome by implementing individually activated pushers.  Only the pushers with material present, after even ending, are activated.  This prevents collisions with material entering the conveyor.
