Built around a modular frame, BT3 Return Conveyors are available in 5 roller length models, BT3-24 / 30 / 36 / 48 and 60. All models incorporate the fast, simple and highly effective belt transfer system as follows:
Its receiving rollers are equipped with a down stroke mechanism that is activated by detection of the trailing end of the panels exiting your equipment.
Transfer belts nested in between the rollers are used to side shift product to a set of motorized rollers parallel to your equipment.

Once the panel has cleared the reception area, the receiving rollers return to their upper position ready to receive the next panel.
