Lifting turning devices

Multiple turning in front of converting machines

Turning devices are used to turn large-size stacks in front of converting machines.

The lifting turning cylinder is equipped with an encoder and centrally positioned in the plastic chain conveyor in front of the converting machine. The conveyors are driven in opposite directions. The lifted cylinder turns the individual stack according to the required conversion by -90°, 90° or 180°. Large stacks, e.g. up to a width of 6,000 mm can be turned on two conveyors, which together are slightly wider than the stack itself. This turning device is a cost-efficient solution compared with other solutions.
