Blade Stops & Brakes

With Shuttleworth blade stops, you can stop and start product traffic without stopping and starting conveyor motors. Most are pneumatically-operated and mounted beneath the conveyor surface with a stainless steel blade or set of pins which extends above and retracts below the roller surface between roller shafts on command. Several styles are available including shock-absorbing and low profile versions.

Customized product stops can also be mounted above the conveyor surface, as needs dictate. Because they are modular, product stops can be relocated and/or added as product handling needs change.  

With Shuttleworth product brakes (overhead or below surface), you can stop and start product traffic without stopping and starting conveyor motors or physically touching the sides of the product. Specially designed rollers are fitted with a "tire" or rubber sleeve. On command, a pneumatic cylinder equipped with a face plate pushes these rollers up against the bottom of the product to stop them and effectively "brake" any product which had been passing over that area of the conveyor surface.
