Belt Turns

Belt Turn Conveyor

Belt Turns are most often used to connect one conveyor (or box-filling station, carrousel etc.) to another. Belt Turns are an excellent choice when parts need to maintain their original orientation on the belt or if the parts could be damaged by being dropped from one conveyor to another.

By butting a conveyor to this 180° belt turn, parts can be moved through a complete change of direction without being dropped.

Specifications:

  • 1/3 HP 110V AC motor
  • Load capacity 40 lbs per linear foot
  • 20, 40, 80 FPM belt speed – (specify)
  • 12-gauge steel construction.
  • 15' power cord included. Pre-wired ready-to-run (except polyphase systems which requires some customer wiring)
  • 2-ply rubber modified vinyl belting
  • Multiple inside and outside radiuses available

  • Applications for Belt Turns:
    Belt Turn Conveyor Robotic box-packing: Robotic box-packing usually requires parts to be positioned in a specific orientation on the conveyor. Belt turns allow parts to maintain their original belt orientation through any number of direction changes. This is especially helpful when robotically placed parts need to be moved to distant robotic packing stations. This Belt Turn application moves parts placed by a robot onto an elevator which moves them to a lower position. Parts are not dropped and they maintain their original orientation on the belt throughout the entire application.
    Protect cosmetically delicate parts: Depending upon the size and shape of the part, Belt turns can often be configured to butt directly to the conveyors they are sequenced with. This is an excellent way to allow parts time to cool and stabilize as they move to their final destination.
    Prevent tall parts from tipping: Butting a conveyor to a smooth flowing, Belt Turn is an excellent way to prevent tall or unstable parts from falling over as they move through a change of direction.

    RM Conveyors with nose-over option and two belt turns create circular table

    This belt turn includes two Extruded Aluminum conveyors with optional leg sets.

    This configuration is a low cost alternative to powered belt turns.

    It consists of 2 flat belt conveyors with curved side rails and a transition plate. The parts cascade through the turn. The 2 conveyors are joined together assuring alignment and rigidity.
