Omni-directional Transfer Unit


In ANY Direction with avancon OTU

Conveyor element for any direction, construction kit for transfer tables and switches, omni directional conveyor element

For conveyor-switches and conveyor-crossings into
ANY direction.

Thanks to the ingenious technique these patented avancon OTUs (Omni-directional-Transfer-Units) present a simple, easy to fix and high performance solution for crossings and switches in conveyor lines and logistic systems. See also the video...


As a universal and variable element it is able  to transfer all sizes of goods with very high speed.


This brick can be just put together through the dove-tails and being connected with the timing belt, one-to another. So you get any size of transfer tables for switches and diverters and crossings.


The avancon OTU drives the rollers directly through a bevel gear system.


All OTUs of a transfer table are connected with T-5-belts (timing belt) and

the direction is changed via a tooth rod.

The latter is moved by one or two new high performance DC-motors.


There are no extra pneumatic devices in use!


A separate field-bus AS-interface controls the OTU table with all the motors
and functions.

It is designed for the avancon ZPC conveyor- system, but can also be used

single in other material handling systems and can communicate with

higher lever IT/BUS topology.

If you tell people where to go,

but not how to get there,

you'll be amazed at the results.
