Shuttleworth lift-and-transfer devices provide a smooth and accurate product transfer at a right angle to the original transport direction.
The lift-and-transfer mechanism is mounted within the conveyor frame and consists of two or more "mini belt or chain conveyors" that reside below the roller surface when deactivated. Upon activation, the lift-and-transfer device lifts the product above the conveyor surface and transports it 90 degrees in either direction to a predetermined point. High-Speed lift-and-transfer devices are also available for certain applications.
One lift-and-transfer device can transport products very precisely to multiple conveyor lanes based on bar codes or other product identification techniques.
Shuttleworth lift-and-transfer devices can also transport the product to a different conveyor with a slightly higher roller surface traveling 90 degrees in either direction to the original transport direction. Conversely, an activated lift-and-transfer device can accept a product, laterally transport it and then lower it to another conveyor traveling 90 degrees in either direction to the original transport direction.
