Tight, 1.6 Turn Radius for Small Footprint Applications

Reduced Radius Omni-Grid conveyor belts are of similar construction as our standard Omni-Grid® belts, but feature an inside turning radius that is 1.6 times the belt width. This tight turning radius enables a 30" wide belt to turn a radius of 48" without needing center links. The wider processing surface allows for increased product loading capacity.

Introduced in 1965 and designed to satisfy the need for a lightweight, easy to clean spiral and turn curve belt, the Omni-Grid Family of stainless steel components are precision crafted from premium quality stainless steel to exacting standards. The finish is smooth and burr-free for quick and easy cleaning, maximizing production. Designed with Wear Resistant Links and 6 gauge rods, Reduced Radius Omni-Grid belts have a 1" pitch and feature a tight, 1.6 turn radius.

Primarily used in the food processing industry for freezing, cooling and proofing, Reduced Radius Omni-Grid stainless steel belts can be manufactured with optional Omni-Tough wire mesh overlay (various mesh options available). Omni-Tough provides significant improvement over conventional wire overlays by offering increased product support. High tensile steel construction also offers superior resistance to impact damage and deformation due to product sticking and freezing.

Special Spirals (patented), used as guard edges, lane dividers and flights, can be added to any Omni-Tough overlay at the time of fabrication. These formed wire spirals are economical and efficient in operation, performing better than stamped metal plates in most applications.

Typically, initial wear and elongation (break-in) of a new metal conveyor belt is rapid, reducing the belt's life span and requiring maintenance work to shorten the belt. To minimize these problems, Ashworth belting engineers designed the patented Wear Resistant Link, standard on all Omni-Grid belts. The unique "coining" feature on the Wear Resistant Link reduces elongation by nearly 50%. The coining feature also prevents the initial break-in wear between the rod and the link, reducing belt maintenance requirements and increasing belt life. The increased life of your new metal belt can be dedicated to conveying your product!
