Low-Profile Conveyors have open-side stand design.

Conveyors have one-piece steel frame which allows cantilever-style construction with single side support to enable belt change without removing conveyor or stand mounts. Open-side stand design enables belt change in 2 min or less on small- to medium-size conveyors, and supports full conveyor capacity on widths of 7 in. or less. Swing away supports are offered for larger conveyors and loads.

Unique 'Open-Side' Stand Design Enables 2-Minute Belt Change on Conveyor Technologies' High-Uptime, Low-Profile Conveyors 

Rigid one-piece steel frame allows cantilever-style construction with single side support to enable quick belt change on open side without removing conveyor or stand mounts

October 2003 Conveyor Technologies Ltd. enhances the fast changeover, high up-time capabilities of its family of low-profile conveyors with a unique "open-side" stand design enabling endless belt change in two minutes or less on small to medium-size conveyors. On large conveyors, the quick-change design allows 95% or better time savings. The innovative design can save 45 minutes to two hours in downtime over belt change with a conventional stand mounting, along with avoiding thousands of dollars in lost production on an unplanned change.

The quick-change configuration, utilizing the high strength and exceptional rigidity of Conveyor Technologies' steel conveyor frame and mount, allows cantilever-style mounting to just one side of the stand. This permits legs on the stand's opposite side to stop short of the conveyor frame, eliminating obstructions to slide-off/slide-on belt removal and installation. The conveyor does not have to be dis-assembled from the stand for belt change, as with conventional units. The tail pulley mounting permits rapid de-tensioning to free the belt for removal. Side rails with brackets remove in seconds with Conveyor Technologies' optional quick-set knobs. 

The cantilever mounting is designed to support full conveyor capacity on widths of 7-1/2 or less. For larger conveyors and loads, the company offers supplemental swing-away supports for the short side connecting frame to leg. Simply loosening two bolts allows the support to swing down, giving open access to the belt. 

Engineered for flexible, high-uptime production, Conveyor Technologies' low-profile conveyors are ideal for automation of work cells, packaging machines, automation, assembly, and similar operations. A broad selection of modular low-profile conveyor designs enables close application-tailoring at standard unit economies. Line choices include end-drive, center-drive, cleated, magnetic, vacuum, high temperature, high speed, self tracking, and AccuMove precision indexing conveyors.
