TKF: Self-Contained, Powered Conveyor Gate Section
May 20, 2005
TKF is now offering a powered gate section for powered conveyor systems that incorporates the company's patented PosiGrip technology to create a unique and effective solution when access behind or through a conveyor section is required. PosiGrip uses lightweight, motorized drive rollers. The roller drive gear teeth are formed directly into the rollers and are powered by smooth, quiet synchronous belting in a positive drive. There are no separate motors, sprockets or gears and no welded drive components. The unit is self-contained and operates on a standard 110V electrical supply. A gas spring assists in the lifting mechanism. The result is a relatively lightweight and very economical and dependable gate section.
