Plastic Guide Profile eliminates need for steel trough.

Guidelite lets Energy Chain® cable carriers travel overÂ- extended runs without steel guide trough. While lower run of cable carrier is guided between 2 of Guidelite's L-shaped, fiber-reinforced plastic profiles, upper run passes partly through guide brackets mounted 3 ft apart. Upper run of cable carrier is only partially guided, accommodating extended...

Flat Top Chain Magnetic Curves help convey products smoothly.
Belt Conveyors

Flat Top Chain Magnetic Curves help convey products smoothly.

Flexon magnetic curves are plastic single- or multi-track guides that hold flat top chains while flexing around radius by acting upon chain pins with magnets placed around bend. Alignment of magnetic fluxes throughout tracks results in near pulsation-free running, reducing tension and noise in conveying products for beverage, food, and packaging industries. Offered in all standard sizes and for...
