Eliminate Carryover of Sticky Stamping Scrap

Keep Workers Safe and More Productive

PRAB’s Pivot Belt Conveyor with Rigidized belt surface prevents scrap from sticking to the belt, while exclusively designed pivoting hinges flip scrap effortlessly into your hopper. Raised pusher flights keep material moving while the seamless, one-piece pan beneath, collects oily fluids to reduce housekeeping and keep workers safe and more productive.
