Chicago, PROMAT, April 2017. Flow-Turn, a global manufacturer of innovative powered belt curves and spirals, announces its new redesigned Flat-Turn Belt Curve product line.
The Flat-Turn Belt Curve offers customers a belted curve that requires no sides or belt guides above the belt surface so products can be conveyed that extend past the boundaries of the curve. This design also permits photo sensors to be mounted just above the belt with no obstruction in height.
The new Flat-Turn design offers big improvements in minimal maintenance and a rugged design for heavy loads and higher speeds.
Innovative Precision-Interlocking frame design guarantees an accurate frame with a 30% improvement in structural stiffness.
Wear guides are improved to allow for higher speeds and less wear. The re-design uses welded steel “C” channels with easy-slide in/out heavy duty wear guides. The wear guides have a 50% larger wear surface to significantly increase the life of each guide yet facilitate ease of replacement years later.
These improvements in design produces a Flat-Turn Belt Curve capable of operating at speeds of 400 to 600 fpm at centerline.
Flow-Turn, a USA based manufacturer with more than 40 years’ experience in the design and build of powered curve Conveyors, provides products for all types of applications from small production systems to large industrial warehouses.
