Conveyor Eliminates Belt Pinch Points

Conveyor eliminates bel pinch points

The new 5200-series QWIK Conveyor system from Dorner Manufacturing, Hartland, WI, comes with a completely contained belt. This design improves worker safety by eliminating catenary sag and reducing pinch points of the belt as it moves around the pulley and along the frame.

The specially designed UHMW plastic holddown strips contain the belt by wrapping around the ends of the conveyor, reducing the chances of getting a finger caught during operation.

The conveyor also allows end users to modify the length, or even add or remove a curve, to adjust to changing applications. These unique design features give end-users with industrial, automation or packaging applications flexibility by allowing them to quickly and simply modify conveyor systems when the application changes.
