Abstract

See full text

A diverting conveyor has an array of transmissions having powered output rollers that form a conveying surface for selectively diverting articles from a first direction to a second direction. Each transmission has a timing belt pulley to operably engage with a toothed timing belt, and each is configured to simultaneously rotate the output roller from the first direction to the second direction in response to actuation of an actuator. When the timing belt pulley engages with the teeth of the timing belt, the output roller of an actuator is rotated around an axis perpendicular to the conveying surface to a rotational position that is a multiple of the tooth spacing of the timing belt. Each output roller has a driven direction resulting from the engagement of the timing belt with the timing belt pulley. An adjuster is provided to align the driven directions of the array of output rollers.
