According to the US-based manufacturer, the curved design of the Impact Cradle eliminates the space between the belt and bed, adding extra protection.
It is designed to fit into an existing idler-mounting footprint and is built to receive the blunt force of material flow at transition points in conveying systems, lessening the wear on the conveyor belt.
Without support, conveyor belts are vulnerable to rips, tears and other impact-related damage. The Impact Cradle’s thick urethane segments can absorb shock and dissipate contact energy, reducing conveyor belt wear and tear.
Fitted for CEMA C, D and E idlers, the Impact Cradle is available in 20° and 35° trough angles for 5in, 6in or 7in (127mm, 152mm or 178mm) diameter roll heights.
