The Ryson Rotating Conveyor is ideal for high speed product rotation without a drop in throughput.


Inline Rotating Conveyor:

This specialized conveyor uses our Slat Conveyor design principles to provide reliable unit rotation. 

Ryson’s Rotator gently rotates boxes as they travel along the conveyor at the same speed as the line it is in.  Because the load rotates as it travels, it doesn’t need to be started or stopped, removed from the conveyor or violently accelerated to perform the rotation.  Gaps between loads are maintained during rotation ensuring smooth flow.  Boxes need a small amount of clearance between individual units, but do not need consistent or measured gaps.

The unique design does not need any adjustment between load sizes for most products.  Additionally the rotator runs at the speed of other conveyors in the line, ensuring a smooth consistent flow without bunching or load interaction.

Rotators can be configured to rotate boxes either clockwise or counterclockwise about the axis of the direction of travel in 90° increments. This new slat conveyor is used in packing lines where products need to be rotated upside down or to one side without delay or product damage, The Ryson High Speed Rotator can accommodate a wide range of load sizes without adjustment.

A common application for the rotator is rotating boxes for labeling. For labeling more than one side, horizontal conveyors can be added between rotation sections to allow more complicated operations. Another common application is rotating boxes to facilitate unloading or reloading boxes as part of a bottle filling or labeling operation.

Our Rotating Conveyor – or Twister –  use the same tried-and-true technology and design as our Spiral Conveyors. Instead of a helical incline, this conveyor uses two tracks that gently rotates a unit in 90º increments. Their advantage is that they can rotate a product without any loss of throughput. 

Multiple Rotating Conveyors can be used in series to achieve more rotation in 90º increments.

The Ryson Rotating Conveyor provides product rotation on a conveyor system that matches adjoining conveyors, so there is not drop in throughput.

Our High Speed Rotator uses the same technology as our Spiral Conveyors and have very few wear parts, and no belts that need repairing, helping you reduce maintenance down time.

The Ryson Rotating Conveyor is both reliable and handles products gently. The smooth conveying surface can handle many different sized and shaped products without the need for change parts or adjustments.

Our Rotating Conveyor can run at speeds up to 200 fpm, making them suitable for most processes.
