Operating Principle

  • 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.
  • Those return rollers are 2" lower than the pass line on your equipment in order to avoid interference when overlapping panels are traveling in opposite directions.
  • Once the panel has cleared the reception area, the receiving rollers return to their upper position ready to receive the next panel.
  • BT3 Return Conveyors are built for right or left-handed return, according to your model of edgebander

Operating Speed

  • BT3 Return Conveyors are equipped with a variable speed drive to match the processing speed of your equipment, receiving table speed is adjustable 30 to 90 feet/min, belt transfer speed is fixed at 180 feet/min and return conveyor speed is adjustable 60 to 180 feet/min.

Application

  • BT3-24, BT3-30 and BT3-36's are ideal for most casegood applications, such as kitchen & bathroom cabinets and living room furniture.
  • BT3-48 and BT3-60 conveyors are best suited for surface finishing applications, such as office furniture and display casings
