Zero-Pressure Contact Accumulation Provided by NBC(TM) Narrow Belt Conveyor
Spring Lake, Michigan - TGW-ERMANCO'S new NBC Narrow Belt Conveyor uniquely accumulates products to provide contact accumulation with no line-pressure. This zero-pressure contact accumulation is exceptionally precise, consistent, and gentle: even empty boxes are dense-packed with just a light touch of box to box. The new technology also excels at dense packing small and diverse products with zero line pressure. NBC curves accumulate in the same manner as straight beds.
NBC is a belt-driven live-roller conveyor that is configurable into zero-pressure contact accumulation, non-contact accumulation, and transportation conveyor using all the same frame and drive components. The use of common components along with modular design, pre-wiring, and pre-plumbing reduce the cost of equipment, installation, and ownership. Additional savings result from NBC's ability to power up to four V-belt modules off either end of the conveyor without adding a drive. NBC's cost advantages, versatility, and functionality make it an excellent value.
