PT 1000 Parallel Transfer Unit

The PT – 1000 Parallel Transferis specifically designed for glass container plant layouts where the IS machine conveyor and lehr Cross Conveyor run in parallel configuration.

The PT – 1000 Parallel Transfer ensures a smooth transition of the containers and places them in a straight line on the lehr across conveyor, giving stability and accurate positioning of the containers in preparation for stacking.

Ware transfer performance can be further enhanced when used in conjunction with the Sheppee CCA/1200 independent cross conveyor and dual belt conveyor system, STK/9437. Utilizing a dual belt system reduces the friction on container bases.
