Product Briefing Outline: Shuttleworth has introduced a new line of products for thin-film and crystalline solar panel handling. The company's new ‘Rotary Turntable’ can be located anywhere in the manufacturing process where the product must be rotated to maintain the proper orientation.
Problem: In order to maximize the use of valuable floor space, process equipment may be arranged perpendicular to other equipment. This may require that the solar panel be rotated prior to entering the next process.
Solution: Using Shuttleworth’s Rotary Turntable, the product is gently conveyed on Shuttleworth’s chain-driven, Slip-Torque conveyor embedded within the unit. The conveyor and product is rotated 90, 180, or 270 degrees. Once rotated, the product is conveyed off the unit and the turntable returns to accept the next product. Up to two products may be safely rotated per minute.
Applications: Flat glass sheet handling found in most solar panel production facilities.
Platform: The turntable is powered by an AC motor-driven, rotary indexer.
Availability: Currently available.
