Conveyor Technologies introduces Modular Plastic Belt conveyors
A 200-degree positive-contact drive sprocket belt engagement, combined with the elimination of return link contraction, lower chordal action, and center tracking, contribute to greater belt and sprocket life and smooth, quiet operation.
Maintenance costs are lowered by reduced component wear, self-aligning sealed-for-life bearings, and a compact quick-change direct drive. A tip-up tail section permits interior access without belt separation. Center tracking eliminates belt lateral end-drift and potential belt run-off, as well as virtually eliminating belt and guide edge-wear.
The quiet, compact drive occupies approximately one-half the space of conventional systems, and the reduced height beyond the drive end allows the conveyors to fit into shallow height applications. The drive is devoid of belts, chain, sprockets, couplings and their related maintenance, and it can be totally replaced and ready to run in under five minutes. Also, the drive does not require disengagement when removing, or installing the belt.
Conveyors are available with an entry nose bar for small part transfer and all units carry a two-year, unlimited hour warranty.
