PRODUCT VIDEO: Pie Pusher Conveyor
For this application, the customer has two pies lines feeding into an oven. The challenge is that both of the pies lines are 90 degrees to the oven, on opposite ends of each other and the pies are single file on the conveyors. This product configuration would not maximize the oven’s 8’ width.
Engineers developed a pusher conveyor that accepts pies from a line on one end. After four pies enter the pusher, they are moved onto the infeed of the oven in a row four across for a total of eight pies across the conveyor — maximizing the oven's capacity.
