In a circuit board conveyor system, flow direc- tion and/or orientation of circuit boards can be changed in different ways. Two commonly used ways to change the flow direction and/or orientation are: * turning a circuit board by 90" (as shown in Figure 1) * flipping a circuit board from a fist side to a second side (as shown in Figure 1) However, each of these ways is designed to serve a dedicated function only and cannot be retro- fitted or modified to serve other functions.
