EDGE DRIVES RELIEVE TENSION IN LONG CONVEYOR BELT RUNS
Developed as an effective way to relieve belt tension in conveyor belt systems, Ashworth Edge Drives consist of high friction urethane inserts attached to a sprocket driven chain which operates in a low friction guide track. As indicated by their name, Edge Drives provide additional driving force to the conveyor belt. They are typically used in applications where long runs of belts pass through a series of turns and straight runs, which would otherwise cause the belt to exceed its recommended tension limits.
CUSTOM BUILT TO HELP YOUR SYSTEM RUN WITH LESS DOWN TIME
Ashworth Edge Drives are compatible with most Ashworth metal turn curve conveyor belts, including Omniflex® and Omni-Grid®. Friction driven, Edge Drive units do not require precise synchronization with the conveyor's sprocket primary drive, so they are easy to set up and maintain. Each Edge Drive is custom built for your specific application and is designed to increase the reliability of your conveyor system and reduce down time cost.
