Types of pushers
A side-mounted pusher is a medium duty pusher designed to mount to a conveyor side frame. The pusher face, which contacts the product, is mounted to a guided cylinder.
An overhead pusher is a heavy duty pusher designed to mount over the top of conveyor and typically utilizes a carriage system with cam rollers to handle side loading.
An under-mounted pusher is designed to mount underneath a conveyor and operate between roller centers. It is often used to pull products across a conveyor.
- Pushers are used to divert products perpendicular to the flow of the conveyor
- Pushers can be used to either push or pull product on or off conveyor
