Flip action pusher


Pushers are used throughout baggage handling, screening and sortation systems to sort individual baggage items from a conveyor line or carousel to adjacent conveyor line or sort chute.

The Model 569 Flip Action Pusher has been designed to provide a smooth and gentle transfer of varying baggage types. It has also been developed to minimise the impact to the bag by the use of a rotary motion, giving an optimised swept path giving progressive acceleration. The unit also has the flexibility of being able to transfer bags from different conveyor types at varying junction types.
