"C" - Shaped gravity roll lowering unit

The gravity roll lowering unit is used to change the level between the roll infeed and outfeed points.

  • The difference in height must be between 2 and 4 metres.
  • Length: about 2 metres.
Adjustment of the roll guides is manual and takes place from a single point for the entire lowering unit.

Accumulation of product on the chute is possible, it obviously depends on the position of the unit along the line and with respect to other machines.
The chute, together with an elevator, may be used to create a passage way for persons and vehicles beneath the roll conveyor line.

In virtue of the “C”-shaped layout, the flow of production lowers and inverts the direction.
