90 Degree Turn Conveyor | Modular Conveyor Systems - Angled - S Curve

2 90 degree turn-machining conveyor systemsMaking a 90 degree turn with SmartMove Conveyors is easy. Simply align the end of one SmartMove Long or Short Line Conveyor with the side of the start of another. A number of SmartMove conveyor accessories can handle any product orientation requirements. SmartMove also can create a custom 90° turn conveyor with rails for higher speed requirements. We also offer Angled and S Curve configurations, as needed.

SmartMove 90 Degree Turns Conveyor Features:

  • Cut resistant polypropylene belting can handle material that may otherwise damage conventional belting.
  • SmartMove snap-link belting will last over 5 times longer than other types of belting made of cloth or plastic. Save money by replacing only the damaged sections instead of replacing an entire belt. Quickly repair belt without tools.
  • Superior low friction allows belt to slide under items to create low pressure accumulation.
  • Protect operators from injury with unique snap-link belting that acts like a fuse to separate during overload or jams.
  • Save on electricity with high efficiency drive that uses only 25 Watts (1/30Hp) to carry 200 lbs.
  • 2 Year Warranty
  • Plug & Play – Easy Installation

Benefits of making 90° turns with SmartMove modular universal sections:

  • Create a turn any place you put the end of one conveyor at the side of the other. Simply remove a section of the guard rail (requires cutting with a saw) on the conveyor that you are going to be merging onto. For improved turning performance, replace the removed guard rail with our “tilting” end-to-side transfer plates.
  • Most products with a flat bottom will easily transfer at the corner. For non-flat items, we recommend setting the drop end conveyor higher and letting the products “waterfall” onto the other conveyor.
  • This simple method of turning at a corner is about half the initial price of a power turn and will not require the maintenance that is normally associated with power turns.

Portable — Quiet — Clean — Modular — Safe — Energy Efficient — Maintenance Free
A well designed conveyor lasts longer when it is working more efficiently… and by using a smaller motor, the conveyor is safer to operate!

90 Degree Turn Conveyor System Applications


Modular Work Cells. Individual conveyors can be easily joined together to form work cells. Perform sequential assembly and control pace and flow with our variable speed drives. With the addition of “Inline Work Surfaces” and
“Side Shelves,” you can improve your productivity by working directly on the line, instead of on separate side tables.
Note: To keep from getting “trapped” in a work cell, consider installing SmartMove gates.



Create return systems. When equipment feeds from one side to the other, a simple set of cornering conveyors can be set up to return the finished items back to the loading side of the equipment, thereby allowing the operator to operate the machine from a single side.


Packaging Lines

Flexibility with turns. Move material through existing isles and walkways when space is tight.

Multi feed lanes. Merge material from multiple machines onto single lines with corner turning capability.
