Additional General Description:

Continuous Duty Multiple Drive Motors
Conveying speed is adjustable from 0 to 120 feet per minute. Start/Stop cycle 300 times per hour. On/Off switches at both ends. Approximately 3 amps per 12 foot of conveyor. Durable DC drive motors with 120VAC input voltage.

Self Tracking
Cartons follow the twists and turns of the conveyor path without using engineered curves.

Adjustable Height
Simply turn the locking knob to raise or lower the conveyor bed height.

1.59 inch Side Plates
Aluminum alloy construction features a ribbed design for added durability.  Assembled with bolts and lock nuts.

Square Tubing Legs
BEST was the first in the industry to offer heavy duty square tubing legs for longer service life.

Available Performance Options:

AC Motors
Lower maintenance requirements since there are no brushes to change as on a standard DC motor.

Electronic Package Stop
Automatically stops cartons at the discharge end of the conveyor. When carton is removed, conveyor starts again to bring next carton into position.

Zero-Pressure Accumulation
Electronic controls enable cartons to move directly to the discharge end without stopping or until they reach the last zone of accumulation.  Choice of accumulation sensors: reading up through the rollers, or side retro-reflective.

Reflective photo cells allow you to control the space between cartons for easier handling and barcode reading.

Leg Connect Brackets
Easily connects two or more conveyors to span greater distances.
