Catapults operate on very similar principles as linear punchers, but with rotational movement instead of linear. An example system can be found here.
The example shown above uses nautilus gears, but it is also quite easy to use shaved gears (slipgears) like on the linear puncher. Obviously with a catapult, normal gears would be used alongside the shaved pinion instead of rack gears.
