Conveyors have one-piece steel frame which allows cantilever-style
construction with single side support to enable belt change without removing
conveyor or stand mounts. Open-side stand design enables belt change in 2 min or
less on small- to medium-size conveyors, and supports full conveyor capacity on
widths of 7½ in. or less. Swing away supports are offered for larger conveyors
Rigid one-piece steel frame allows cantilever-style construction with single
side support to enable quick belt change on open side without removing conveyor or stand mounts.
Conveyor Technologies Ltd. enhances the fast changeover, high up-time capabilities of its family of low-profile conveyors with a unique "open-side"
stand design enabling endless belt change in two minutes or less on small to
medium-size conveyors. On large conveyors, the quick-change design allows 95% or
better time savings. The innovative design can save 45 minutes to two hours in
downtime over belt change with a conventional stand mounting, along with
avoiding thousands of dollars in lost production on an unplanned change.
The quick-change configuration, utilizing the high strength and exceptional
rigidity of Conveyor Technologies' steel conveyor frame and mount, allows
cantilever-style mounting to just one side of the stand. This permits legs on
the stand's opposite side to stop short of the conveyor frame, eliminating
obstructions to slide-off/slide-on belt removal and installation. The conveyor
does not have to be dis-assembled from the stand for belt change, as with
conventional units. The tail pulley mounting permits rapid de-tensioning to free
the belt for removal. Side rails with brackets remove in seconds with Conveyor
Technologies' optional quick-set knobs.
The cantilever mounting is designed to support full conveyor capacity on widths
of 7-1/2” or less. For larger conveyors and loads, the company offers
supplemental swing-away supports for the short side connecting frame to leg.
Simply loosening two bolts allows the support to swing down, giving open access
to the belt.
Engineered for flexible, high-uptime production, Conveyor Technologies'
low-profile conveyors are ideal for automation of work cells, packaging
machines, automation, assembly, and similar operations. A broad selection of
modular low-profile conveyor designs enables close application-tailoring at
standard unit economies. Line choices include end-drive, center-drive, cleated,
magnetic, vacuum, high temperature, high speed, self tracking, and AccuMove
precision indexing conveyors.
