Return Conveyors on a Shaper Sander have a fast payback. Most doors or panels need at least 2 passes, if not 4, through the machine to be fully machined. This normally would require (2) Operators, one to feed, and one to catch. With a Taylor Return, productivity is increased by 100% or more because it makes a (2) operator job into a (1) operator job.

How it Works


  1. Components exit your Shaper Sander with the help of outfeed belts
  2. As it is exiting the machine, it is supported by a ledge and spring loaded roller
  3. When it completely exits the machine, traverse belts carry the component sideways onto the return section
  4. The return is equipped with powered rollers to start the component back to the operator
  5. The return extension carries the component back to the infeed end
