This modular Block
(Omni-directional Transfer Unit)
into any direction.
For conveyor-switches and conveyor-crossings into ANY direction.
Thanks to the ingenious technique, these patented avancon OTUs (Omni-directional-Transfer-Units) offer a simple, easy and high-performance solution for crossings and switches in conveyor lines and logistic systems.

It is patented in most industrialized countries worldwide.
with the new avancon special OTU-Profile
from aluminum anno-dized. It's as easy as replacing a roller in a roller conveyor...
The avancon OTU table runs with 1.5 m/s. That is about 10'000 units per hour, depending on the length of the goods. (calculated for boxes of about 400 mm length)
10'000 units per hour
The avancon ZPC-Control system, based on the ASi-field-bus manages the OTU tables - as corner, transfer, switch or double X-switch and more - with the brush-less DC-motors, smooth and fully automatically. It is designed for the avancon ZPC conveyor-system and avancon OTU's. The ZPC-control system can communicate with any higher-level IT/BUS infrastructure.
There are generally no pneumatic devices in use!
The OTU-tables fit into any conveyor construction.
But here inside an avancon ZPC-conveyor system it looks most elegant and modern. It works fast. Come to Ticino in South Switzerland and see our demo- and test-installation life. We explain everything to you in detail.
