Quick-change conveyor makes reconfiguring a snap

The 5200 Series QWIK Conveyor lets end users modify track length, or even add or remove a curve, to adjust to changing applications

The 5200 Series QWIK Conveyor lets end users modify track length, or even add or remove a curve, to adjust to changing applications. Production lines change frequently and the 5200 Series is designed to change along with them. One person with just a few tools can shorten or extend the conveyor in as little as 10 minutes. Here’s how it works: To shorten or lengthen the conveyor, remove the plastic chain belt and simply cut the conveyor with a saw to the desired length. Remove enough belt links to fit the new length and tighten the screws with an Allen wrench. To add length, remove the tail and insert a new section of pre-ordered frame, and tighten with a wrench. Changing curves is just as easy. The conveyor comes in straights, curves, and cleats, and works in a wide variety of industrial, automation, and packaging applications.
