Model 3160 Power and Free Conveyor

Model 3160 Power and Free ConveyorThe Model 3160 Power and Free Conveyor is a low–backpressure roller chain conveyor used to transport product between manufacturing processes while contacting the product only along its edges (requires 5mm edge clearance). Power and Free conveyors can be used as a simple means of spanning large distances or sophisticated controls, board actuators, and ergonomic workstation accessories can be added.

The low–backpressure roller chain allows product to queue on a continuously running conveyor while minimizing friction on the product.
