Link-Belt® Take-Up Units
Link-Belt Take-Ups provide critical belt tensioning during startup, loading and conveying to prevent drive pulleys from slipping. Take-ups absorb belt stretch while maintaining proper design tension to the belt as the conveyor is unloaded, partially loaded or fully loaded. Link-Belt Take-Ups are offered with AC electric winches or traditional hydraulic cylinder winches. Hydraulic cylinder winches are available in travel distances from zero to 40 feet, and electric winches are available in travel distances from 40 to 500 feet. Call the factory for assistance.
Belt Storage Units
FMC Technologies offers Link-Belt belt storage units in two major configurations using the same frame component design, with Link-Belt hydraulic or electric constant tension winch systems. Single or multiple lap configurations are available. Link-Belt storage units are supplied with positive deploy drop carriages.
Link-Belt Belt Winders are used to dispense or receive conveyor belting from the belt conveying system. Most often used in conjunction with belt storage units for belt conveyors that are lengthened or shortened on a regular basis, the belt winder reels the conveyor belt into a roll or spool so that it can be moved, stored and reused at a later date. Belt winders can be mobile or used in conjunction with splice stations where mechanical splices can be installed or removed from a length of conveyor belting located near the belt storage unit. Belt Winding workstations are available in any belt width. These systems are designed and manufactured to integrate with your storage units and belt take-ups. Guarding must be used — customized guarding can be supplied by FMC.
Link-Belt Winches are designed to work in conjunction with our belt storage and take-up units. Winch design incorporates load capacities, line dimensions and maximum line speed under load. FMC’s electric winch is offered as our premier top of the line system without the premium price.
