Almè (BG), Italy – As a leading manufacturer of components for bulk material handling, Rulmeca is constantly striving to improve product quality and customer service. As part of this continuous improvement process, the company has now introduced a new conveyor belt idler station with a completely revised frame. The new design offers the same strength as its predecessors at a significantly lower weight.
Thanks to a tubular cross beam, Rulmeca’s upgraded design maintains the same mechanical performance, but significantly reduces mass, offering an optimum ratio between strength and weight. All components have been redesigned to ensure a design suitable for every load case. Rulmeca frames are engineered and tested to withstand the toughest conditions and are available with cross beam size ranges from 40 to 90 mm diameter.
The new design of the side beams prevents the accumulation of material on the belt side and protects the rollers from the ingress of foreign bodies by means of an “Antiblocking” shape. The alignment of rollers and supports is also guaranteed for unidirectional frames: the tilt angle can be adjusted simply by rotating the supports on the cross beam. Conventional bolted fixing brackets are available, as well as a practical clamping solution that does not require holes in the carrying structure.
