About the Rotary Screw Diverter

Our rotary screw diverters are always engineered specifically to suit your industrial automation application.

The Carlson Engineering Rotary Screw Diverter is designed to be a low-maintenance, durable, and reliable system you can count on for years.

A versatile device for directing fasteners to and from one or more screwfeeders and or drive heads that is easily configurable to divert screws to as many as 4 single-spindle drive heads or one multi-spindled drive head with up to 4 screwdriving spindles.

Configurations

Carlson rotary diverters can be configured in the following ways:

Not every application is simple.

That’s why rotary screw diverters are sometimes necessary – for applications with a unique screw feeder to screwdriver spindle ratio. Here are several of the different ways a Carlson screw diverter can be configured:

For relatively simple applications with only 1 vibratory bowl or step feeder, but either 2 single-spindle drive heads, or 1 multi-spindle drive head.

For situations where only 1 feeder is being used, but there are either 2 drive heads, or 1 multi-spindle drive head driving 2 separate fasteners or types of fasteners. The rotary diverter alternates the blow feeding air pressure, effectively diverting fasteners to the correct screwdricing spindle using smooth rotary action.

Drive Head Type Chart

Every assembly is different. That’s why we’ve engineered adaptability into our single-spindle drive heads – so that no matter the application, we have a drive head that will work for you. Each type of drive head has different qualities which make it more suited for a particular style of fastener driving.
