Utilizing Intralox modular plastic belting, LEWCO recently supplied a major tire manufacturer with a high speed decline conveyor. The application required a robust design capable of starting and stopping tires weighing as much as 80 pounds every 2.4 seconds, at speeds as high as 160 feet per minute!
Working closely with Intralox engineers to design a robust conveyor for the environment, LEWCO’s finished product exceeded expectations for the 24/7, high duty cycle application.
This conveyor is just one example of modular plastic belt conveyors LEWCO has to offer for a wide variety of applications.
Besides tire handling, modular plastic belt conveyors are available to service applications ranging from stainless steel wash-down, to package and parcels, to handling heavy loads with irregular bottoms, and a host of opportunities in between.
The belting is driven by a series of sprockets on the head and tail shaft. Because of the positive drive, no belt tracking is required. In the event of damage, the segmented sections are east to replace. This conveyor is tough, easy to run, and easy to maintain.
LEWCO Application Engineers can help you determine the belting and the design requirements for your application, which will exceed your expectations too!
