Pallet Transfer Units

Transfer units are used for changing the transport direction of a pallet without changing the pallet orientation. Pallets cross from the roller conveyor section to the chain section (or vice versa) and are not turned. Available in several designs with either pneumatic or electric lifting of the conveyor section.


The transfer unit is intended to be used in combination with a chain conveyor. A connecting chain conveyor is placed into two gaps in the lift part, allowing the transfer unit to be placed into any spot of the chain conveying system. The independence on the chain driven conveyor is also provides a significant increase in reliability.

The lifting device is driven by a 1.1kW electrical engine and the lifting is achieved by eccentric wheels. For reliable functioning, the chain conveyor height must be 25mm lower than the connecting roller conveyor.
