Bumpless Case Turner For Pallets

The Alvey bumpless case turner selectively turns fragile products needing higher-speed turning for palletizing operations.

It uses patent-pending technology to create a speed differential under the cases that accurately generates -90°, 90°, 180°, and 270° turns. With a maximum throughput of 72 cases/min, the turner is reportedly faster and more efficient than traditional alternatives such as sequential bump turners, right-angle transfers, and lift-and-turn equipment. It also features an autocorrect function with two laser sensors to ensure accurate turning.
