The chain transfer offset is used to transfer pallets from roller conveyors to adjacent parallel conveyor lines. The motor-driven chain conveyor is lifted and lowered by a crank lift gear with parallel guide rods.
When the device is inactive, the chain tracks are lowered underneath the top edge of the rollers of the two parallel roller conveyors, providing for smooth transport of the pallets on the roller conveyors.
During transfer, the chain conveyor lifts a pallet above the top roller edge and transfers it crossways to the motor-driven roller conveyor. Once the pallet is precisely positioned over the adjacent parallel roller conveyor, the chain conveyor is lowered again, releasing the pallet to the material flow. For high payloads of up to 1,500 kg the transfer device optionally uses a centre pallet rail or a driven third chain strand to support the pallet weight.
