Weighted take-up module eliminates conveyor belt sag

February 10, 2014

Dorner has introduced the 2200 series SmartFlex™ flexible chain conveyor platform. It comes with a weighted take-up module to help prevent the plastic chain belt from sagging underneath the conveyor during operation and creating pinch points in the system.

The weighted take-up module is designed with an adjustable slot that compensates when the conveyor is operating to remove sag in the belt. This makes the belt interface with the frame more easily, allowing for smoother belt tracking while reducing the risk of jamming or other faults. The module also can be positioned in various locations along the conveyor.

Accessories such as infeed and exit power transfers allow for smooth end transfers for products as small as 3 in. dia. Made with a single-piece aluminum frame, it can navigate very tight corners with wheel and plain bend options. Available widths are 2.6, 4.1, and 5.9 in. Load capacity is 600 lbs.
