All goods are guided into different directions by moving in line of a natural curve or a crossing with OTU. These new key elements allow to build easily any size of crossings or diverters in conveyors systems with versatile OTU-bricks. But it is also possible to build crossover transport, sideways movements or even sorters.
This "OTU" Omni-directional Transfer Unit is an ideal component that moves goods in almost any direction and that you can use for all those purposes as infeeds, switches, diverters, crossing, transfers, sorters and so on. These OTUs can be universally combined to "OTU tables" in any length and width, adjusted respectively to the largest product to be conveyed as cardboard boxes or plastic boxes or anything else with flat bases.
The single element, which consists of several detailed parts made of valuable and strong Techno-Polymers, is 75 x 75 x 133 mm in size, is assembled together in dovetail similar forms and over-head confected with the belt and combined with a toothed rack. Where the toothed rack, which causes the movement of the rollers in any direction (nearly 360°). Fore instance in a diverter/switch the transporting rollers build a natural curve to transport the goods into the right or left direction. So the transport can be done very fast but smooth and uses less space.
The wheels have tires of PU (Polyurethane) and are powered via bevel gear system within each element. This cannot be seen from outside.
