PRAB’s pivot belt conveyor is designed for moving oily, thin-gauge trim scrap, stamping slugs, motor laminations and eyelet press scrap without carryover. Pivoting sections and a raised, dimpled, “rigidized” steel belt are said to eliminate carryover of scrap that can get stuck in conveyors. Raised pusher flights provide positive material flow as the one-piece pan collects waste fluid for disposal or recycling. Overlapping hinged pans pivot individually, preventing scrap from becoming lodge in the belt and facilitating full discharge. Belt sizes are available in either 2.5" or 4" pitch. Additional features include built-in automatic overload protection, heavy-duty side frames, side wings and flights that are integrally die-formed to the pan. Custom skirts, chutes and hoppers are available to accommodate a range of scrap.
