For pallet transport, a rotating table is used when the transport direction of a pallet needs to be changed, without the pallet rotating compared to the transport direction. This may be relevant when for instance a barcode on the pallet has to be readable from the side of the conveyor.
An alternative for the rotating table is the perpendicular transfer system. The perpendicular transfer system can transfer the pallet from a roller conveyor onto a chain conveyor and vice versa. A conical bend is not applied in pallet transport because of the high degree of friction which will take place between the rollers and the pallet.
