Conveyor system

Article-Conveyor system

The co.'s new Live-Drum Spiral Conveyor, a spiral conveyor system, utilizes a cylindrical drum that assists in driving the modular plastic belt. The conveyor offers increased elevation changes and capacity, design and product range versatility and low maintenance. Regardless of the conveyor length, the rotating stainless-steel drum imparts the driving force to the inside edge of the belt creating very low tension on the belt. The low belt tension accommodates exceptionally long production runs, translating into a significantly increased number of tiers, the co. says.
