Wide angled belt conveyors are usually equipped with an underframe, type HF 310. This offers high stability and at the same time, flexibility with regard to the angle adjustment - also for long flat belts with medium feeding heights.
Two gas pressure springs enable an angle adjustment to be performed easily by one person - even with conveyor belts of up to 1,500mm long. This is a particular, unbeatable advantage of the MFT devices, e.g. for night shifts where only a few persons of the staff are present.
Belt conveyors of this type are used if high-volume parts e.g. are to be conveyed e.g. from an injection moulding machine into a container or onto a table. Further application areas are found in the processing of paper or cardboard, and where edge strip cuts or punching waste are to be conveyed from the machines.
The patented belt tensioning mechanism of MTF Technik makes it possible to manufacture belt conveyors of extreme width. The belt tensioning mechanism ensures that the belt cover tension stays constant over the entire angle adjustment range between 0° and 60°. This prevents the belt cover from arching in the bend area. This in turn, reduces downforce and wear and thus, ensures a long service life of the belt.
