Driven unit handling conveying in the curve section, e.g. of cardboards, containers or tires. Suitable for implementing gravity or driven roller curves. Tight curve radii are possible if tapered elements with a conicity of 2.2° are used.
This roller series has been proven millions of times. Contrary to conventional curve rollers, the elements are secured against shifting. This allows the roller to offer a very high degree of functional dependability.
The use of polyamide drive heads results in very quiet running.
Good running properties
The tapered elements made of polypropylene distinguish themselves with a low net weight so that good startup properties can be achieved.
Robust tapered elements are abrasion-proof, noise-reducing, impact-resistant and excel through a high weather-resistance.
Depending on the requirement, the curve rollers can be supplied with drive heads for PolyVee belts, round belts or chains.
Round belt drive head
With the round belt head, the drive section is separated from the conveying section, so that materials cannot be shifted due to batching belts. Since the drive head has a higher friction because of grooves in the metal tube, the result is a higher conveyance of the round belts. If the round belts should slip because of the application, then the wear of the belts on a round belt drive head is higher.
PolyVee drive head
Compared with a round belt, the use of a 2-rib belt allows transferring approximately twice the torque. Conveying and drive technology are physically separated. A groove must remain clear between two belts so that the belts cannot touch.
