QC Industries’ new Automation Series low profile belt conveyors offer Pivot™ rotatable drives that can be quickly and easily rotated to almost any position. The drives can be positioned to avoid products on the conveyor belt or obstructions caused by integrated machines.
Rotate the drives to a new position by loosening two set screws, rotating the drive and retightening the screws. A knurled collar locks the drive into the desired position.
When the Pivot™ drive is rotated below the conveyor, the belt is the highest point on the conveyor, allowing overhanging product to pass easily across its entire length.
A timing belt inside the guard transfers torque from the motor to the conveyor’s drive pulley. It is capable of belt speeds up to 400 feet per minute.
The Pivot™ drive package is compatible with any standard QC Industries AC or DC gearmotor, including compact and quiet brushless DC motors. The drives are available on any AS40 End Drive and are compatible with all standard QC Industries side rails and guides, and with both flat and v-guided belts.
