Overview

The Three-Way Conveyor (TWC) is an innovative machine in sawmill material handling. It includes the features of custom conveying systems without the hefty price tags. Material can be transferred three ways: to the left, to the right, or straight through. The units are built in sections to handle material from six to twenty feet, with longer lengths possible as an option. Multiple units can be lined up to give even more directional options.
