The Case for Micropitch Transfers… and when they make sense.

The Case for Micropitch Transfers… and when they make sense.

Micropitch transfers are basically a “powered deadplate”, designed to allow for seamless end-to-end transfers of small profile, top-heavy, or uniquely shaped products that may stall, wedge, wobble or tip on a standard fixed transfer deadplate or roller transition. When two conveyors need an end-to-end transfer, LBP (low back pressure) transitions are typical. However, some products can stall...
