In December 2020, MB Conveyors announced that the conveyors of the TP series with plastic belt, started to be produced in a new aluminum profile.
This change arose due to the need to increase the height of the containment sides from the current 40 mm to 60 mm. Therefore, the height of the entire profile became 180 mm high.
In addition to this change, each conveyor with a plastic and metal belt is now equipped with its own torque wrench to tension the belt.
This wrench is supplied, already configured, in the specific torque value required – a value that is also highlighted on the label placed on the conveyor. This tool is now considered standard equipment for all plastic and metal belt conveyors.
The provision of this tool will allow equipment operators to adjust the required belt tension easily and correctly, safely resulting in a good experience in its use.
