THE BELT OF CHOICE FOR WOOD AND WOOD VENEER DRYING APPLICATIONS
In cooperation with some of the best European wood processing companies, Ashworth has developed and refined our line of "WU" woven wire belts, which are specifically designed for drying of solid wood and wood veneers. Ashworth WU belts are manufactured using specially formulated stainless steel wire, so they are non-marking and gently convey the most sensitive wood products, including those that are bright, blank or lightly grained.CLINCHED EDGES AND FLATTENED SPIRALS FOR EXCEPTIONAL HANDLING
Ashworth WU belts are made with U-hooked clinched edges, which contain no welds. This enables WU belts to remain flexible under extreme operating conditions, and ensure a flat, smooth and level belt surface. Further, WU belts are manufactured with flattened wire spirals (round wire spirals are available upon request). The combination of weld-free edges and flattened spirals provides the belt with the benefits of minimal wear and optimal contact between the belt and the products' surface.
As a result, the wood processor receives a quality dried wood product without markings attributed to the conveyor belt. Thus, WU belts generate minimal scrap, reducing processing costs. And because WU belts are extremely flexible, they last longer-further contributing to the bottom line.SIMPLE TO INSTALL, OPERATE AND REPAIR
Ashworth WU belts are friction-driven belts that are easy to install and operate. They are light, low profile belts that cause minimal drag and wear on drive equipment. And because they have clinched rather than welded edges, when the time comes to make a repair, it's simple and fast with a minimum of downtime because no welding is required. Manufactured to the tightest tolerances, Ashworth WU belts are the quality, reliable choice for solid wood and wood veneer drying application.
