Superior Industries, a US based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, has expanded its conveyor components accessories line with the release of the new impact cradle. The curved design of the impact cradle eliminates the space between the belt and bed, adding extra protection.
Designed to fit into an existing idler mounting footprint, the impact cradle 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 absorb shock and dissipate contact energy, reducing conveyor belt wear and tear.
