The Pusher Unit from Robsons Handling Technology designed to push pre-selected bags off the main conveyor to an alternative route, rigidly constructed and mounted.
The Robson Pusher Diverter is a compact solution to diverting luggage within the Airport Baggage Handling Conveyor System. Providing fast action to divert bags 90° to other conveyor lines.
The pusher is designed to push bags off at a maximum rate of 45 bags per minute rigidly constructed and mounted to withstand impact from a maximum specified single bag weight at the belt speed. The pusher is mounted on a fabricated frame complete with shock absorbing feet.
The pusher is deployed by a 2.2 kW geared motor unit. The output shaft of the geared motor unit is equipped with a timing belt pulley which drives a pair of drive pulleys via a timing belt tensioned by two spring loaded devices.
Each drive pulley is connected to a drive shaft which runs in upper and lower bearings and at the lower end connects to a pivot arm via upper and lower locking nuts. The other end of each pivot arm runs in a pair of bearings mounted in the pivot arm located over a pivot pin.
The pivot pin is welded to the pusher arm and one pusher arm connects to the pusher blade by a metalastic bush and the other pusher arm is welded to the pusher blade. The face of the pusher blade is covered with a damping/isolation pad. The Horizontal Pusher is suitably guarded with both weld mesh and mild steel plate guarding as appropriate.
