Flow-Turn Launches the New Double Square Turn
Thursday, April 04, 2019
Flow Turn Inc, an innovative belt turn manufacturer, is introducing the “Double Square Turn®” as a belt accumulation curve-set. The Double Square Turn® allows to accumulate with precision on 2 x 45-degree Square-Turn units on one frame.
The Double Square Turn® with 2" end-rollers utilizes a very small diameter straight end pulley, eliminating the typical gap common with the tapered pulleys. This means all transfers across the width of the curve are across the same diameter. More significant than the cylindrical end-roller is that the end rollers are square to the edge of the curve.
The gap is now equal across the end of the turn and allows a smooth, predictable transfer to the takeaway conveyor no matter where your item is on the turn. Unique to the Double Square Turn® is the fact that it is a positive drive with low belt tension utilizing Flow-Turn's proven chain turn technology.
The Double Square Turn® makes use of this invention and allows for precise accumulation to save space and add metering sections. The Double Square Turn® can be 2 x 45 degree on one frame or even 3 x 30 degree on one frame for maximum Accumulation.
The Double Square Turn® with a horizontal end pulley of 2” diameter, extending the entire face of the curve. The chain is mounted inverted and results in a smooth transfer of the product to the takeaway conveyor. Square Turn® Speed ratings are up to 400 fpm.
Flow-Turn, a USA based manufacturer with more than 40 years’ experience in the design and build of belted powered Curve Conveyors, provides products for all types of applications from small production systems to large industrial warehouses.
