How our transfer units work

The strings of the transfer unit are located just below the transport surface of the roller conveyor. When the product is being positioned above the strings from the transfer unit, the strings will come up to transport the product to the other conveyor. The product takes a turn to the roller conveyor which is perpendicular or parallel to it. Depending on the direction, the product can change in orientation.

The strings will only come up when the product has the right parameters, thanks to our intelligent software which is linked to the transfer unit. An average transfer unit has a capacity of 1.200 product per hour, depending on the measurements and conveyor speed.

 

 

Use of our transfer units

The transfer unit is often used toe sort products like packages, boxes and crates. Important is that the product has a flat bottom.

‘We were looking for a dosing system that could fill containers with clay and also ensure an even distribution. When emptying the containers, we are now able to deliver a good mixture of the ground clay to the factory. Thanks to ARCO’s dosing system, there are far fewer fluctuations in the clay, which in turn improves the quality.’
