Sometimes the most direct route isn’t a straight line. For these situations, we supply a group of specialized belts called power turn belts. ProTurn® is our line of precision fabricated replacement belts.
The most common type of power turn belts (chain drive) are frequently used in airline baggage and package handling applications. They are also used in distribution centers, newspaper plants, industrial manufacturing, paper mills and food processing plants.
Normal power turn belt applications are 45°, 90° and 180°, however, any belt for spiral lifts of 15° to 720° can be fabricated. In addition to timely delivery, our power turn belts and accompanying hardware provide our distributors with another "value added" product that can be offered to their customers. Our equipment and tooling match existing power turn belt standards. In most cases, power turn belts can be quoted the same day if distributors complete our worksheets.
To ensure a quick, accurate quotation from our product specialists, distributors are encouraged to complete and fax/email a worksheet for every replacement power turn that is needed. Specifications can vary, even on conveyors made by the same manufacturer.
Three types of ProTurn® power turn belt worksheets (chain drive, bearing drive and urethane guide) are available as downloadable PDFs (click blue button for download).
