Model 3021 Edge Belt Inspection Conveyor

Model 2021 Edge Belt Inspection ConveyorThe Model 3021 Edge Belt Inspection Conveyors allow operators to select products to be stopped for inspection during a manufacturing process. Product may or may not be removed for the inspection process and will remain stopped until it is released by an operator or other signal. The unit may also run in pass-through mode.

Each unit is designed to run at very high speeds with minimal maintenance and supports a high-degree of customization. Edge Belt Inspection Conveyors are available in any length and in numerous drive configurations.

The Model 3021 Inspection Edge Belt Conveyor is nearly identical in form as the Model 3011 Edge Belt Conveyor. The only difference being that the inspection conveyor has a manual push-button stop for visual inspection.


  • Model 3021: One-drive inspection conveyor
  • Model 3022: Two-drive conveyor, inspection station at discharge
  • Model 3023: Three-drive conveyor, inspection station at second buffer position
