Hytrol Conveyor Co., Inc., headquartered in Jonesboro, AR, has recently announced its newest conveyor accessory, the Extenda Pusher, a space-saving design that makes it a great choice for systems where mounting space is minimal yet products require a 90 degree sortation.
The construction of the Extenda Pusher lends itself to both speed and strength. The robust cylinders–stabilized by tandem aluminum guides–provide the power, while the lightweight aluminum pusher face enhances the speed with throughput rates of up to 50 cartons per minute.
Available in four stroke lengths, it mounts to units with overall conveyor widths of 18-, 24-, 30- and 36-inches. Unique to this style pusher are proximity sensors for both extend and return signals, which allow the user to adjust the stroke length.
Its black composite guards are secure yet lightweight and simple to remove. Another standard feature is the emergency stop that when activated immediately empties air pressure stored within the pusher, ensuring safe operation.
