Title: Product discharge line

Abstract: A module conveying device including a main conveying mechanism conveying products in a main conveying direction between an input location and an output location of the main conveying mechanism. The output location can be swiveled between two vertically arranged first transfer positions. A transverse mechanism accepts the conveyed products that likewise includes an input location and an output location, which input location is positioned in one of the two first transfer positions and the output location of the transverse conveying mechanism is positioned in a second transfer position. The output location of the main conveying mechanism can be swiveled between at least one additional first transfer position and the two first transfer positions. Each additional first transfer position is positioned in the event of one input location of an additional transverse conveying mechanism. The additional output locations of the additional transverse conveying mechanism are positioned in additional transfer positions arranged vertically to the second transfer position. The conveying device also includes a collecting conveying mechanism, including an input location and an output location, that can be positioned selectively between the transfer positions of the transverse conveying mechanism to accept products temporarily stored on a transverse conveying mechanism.
