Retrofit 180° curve conveyor before shrink tunnel with NEW bearing curve.
Goal : Improving workflow and line efficiency.
The retrofitting of an existing curve conveyor with Rexnord belt and curves results in :
- reducing maintenance cost
- improving line efficiency.
- 180° curve conveyor with shrink packs before shrink tunnel
- speed 35 m/min - load of 40 kg/m
- belt width: 600 mm
- inside radius belt: 750 mm
- center drive
- Installation of a new belt is needed each year.
- Lubrication of belt is necessary :
- monthly belt inspection and placing of new oil tubes
- oil gives marks on endproduct
- Belt is guided in 2 C profiles. It is not possible to remove the belt without pulling out an SS pin.
- Two technicians are needed.
- Installation of curve with fixed bearings in an existing frame.
- No lubrication is needed :
- Maintenance free
- No oil marks on endproducts
- 25% lower electricity consumption resulting in
- 25% less tension in the belt
- Longer lifespan of the belt ( expected factor 5)
- Easy cleaning and removing of the belt by one technician without breaking the belt.
This new curve design allows the highest speed and load charge for curves in the market.
The 1200 belt type allows:
- a inside radius of 1.2 the width
- speed till 60 m/min
- load till 100 kg/m ( width > 600 mm )
