Slow Down Belt System.
Ron Howarth Services
mechanical design, CAD design, Belt Conveyors
Belt conveyor used to slow lumber down as it leaves a high speed planer or moulder.
The angle the wood hits the belt can be changed by rotating the conveyor within the ring track. The horizontal angle of the conveyor can also be changed easily with hydraulic cylinders. The head and tail end can be raised or lowered to suit the lumber and how it leaves the planer.
The way in which the lumber strikes the slow down belt, allows for the slowing down action and also for nesting the pieces.
