3-in-1 conveyor technology includes ARB, removable bump turn and beaded guiderails

Multi-Conveyor recently built a 3-in-1 system to do a 90° degree rotation of bundled cartons of a dry snack food  ... a conveyor trifecta for this customer. The systems includes ARB (Activated Roller Belt) technology provided by Intralox; along with beaded guide rails for continuous movement while maneuvering through two manually adjustable bump turn assemblies in the process. This conveyor rotates the cartons to work in conjunction with the customer's pre-printed brand and identification label applications. The bump turn is manually removed and repositioned on the same stainless steel mount - then reapplied as needed. The ARB conveyor will "edge align" all products without adjustment. Multi-Conveyor customers choose their construction options from painted mild steel to washdown, sanitary, stainless steel as required.
