If you have the need to position product to one
side of a conveyor, skewing rollers is your best bet.
Skewing rollers is accomplished by removing one or
more rollers and angling other rollers so they are not
perpendicular to the side of the conveyor frame. Skewing
rollers on a live roller conveyor will cause the conveyed
product to "walk" towards one edge of the
conveyor. Several factors will determine the distance of a
product that must travel before it reaches the target area
or "side travel" (side of conveyor you want the
product to walk to). The factors include: Width of conveyor,
length of product, amount of canting (the distance the
rollers are skewed e.g.; If rollers are on 3" centers
and the roller is skewed one position the canting is
3"). The application shown is used in conjunction with
a pivot diverter.
Just as your product walks to one edge of the
conveyor so does the v-belt driving the roller. Therefore,
it is important that you have a means of capturing the
v-belt so it doesn't walk off the drive pulley. This is
accomplished by installing positive drive sheaves to retain
Skewing rollers is not recommended on spool or line
shaft conveyors. The angle creates extra drag which reduces
the drive capability of the roller.

Guidelines for moving totes on your conveyor.
There are many benefits when conveying totes. They
are consistent dimensionally and in weight, ergonomic,
clean, and reduce the maintenance issues associated with
corrugated dust. Many have the ability for RFID as well as
areas for bar code labels and security ties for safe
Even with all these benefits, there are a number of
factors to consider when designing a conveyor system that
will be moving totes, especially if they will be moving on
One important feature when selecting totes is the
design of the totes themselves:
Make sure they have
a continuous edge or "bumper" around the top. The
larger the bumper, the less likely they are to
"shingle" when accumulating.
The main component for success on conveyor is
flatness of the bottom. Some of the molding processes and
cheaper totes do not have flat bottoms. It's obvious that
the more surface area to come in contact with the conveyor,
the more conveyable the tote. The flatness tolerance should
always be considered when specifying a system that will be
Another way to improve conveying totes on inclines
is to use totes with a textured bottom. This is molded in
and creates a rough surface that the belt can
"grip". In any case, if there are questions
concerning the conveyability of the tote, remember that we
offer testing of end user products, including totes.
Lift tables and positioners are a great way to
increase efficiency and reduce the chances of injury.
Are you in need of ergonomic material handling
equipment? Babush can provide you with equipment for
vertical lifting and work positioning that is designed to
improve worker productivity while reducing the potential for
workplace injuries. Some of these lifts will adjust
themselves to optimal height as the load changes - letting
workers focus on the job at hand and not the machine. Our
lines of material handling equipment and container handling
equipment include: scissor lift tables, container tilters,
pallet level loaders, pallet trucks, turntables and other
palletizing equipment, coil and roll handling equipment,
roll handling equipment, roll on level loaders, dock lifts,
vertical conveyors, and manual lifter transporters.
