SIDE MOUNT STYLES
Narrow Slot Frame
Narrow Slot Take Up Frames provide an economical solution for light duty take-up applications with space limitations. These in-line frames can be mounted to the side or on top of the conveyor frame, offer from 6″ to 18″ of travel and utilize Narrow Slot Bearing units.
Wide Slot Take Up Frames provide an economical solution for take-up applications with space limitations. These in-line frames can be mounted to the side of the conveyor frame, offer from 1.5″ to 30″ of travel and utilize Wide Slot Bearing units.
Wide Slot Style B Take Up Frames provide an economical solution for take-up applications with space limitations. These in-line frames can be mounted to the side of the conveyor frame, offer from 1.5″ to 30″ of travel and utilize Wide Slot Bearing units.
PCI Telescoping Take-Up Frames feature our exclusive indicator pin, showing the user exactly how much travel is available in either direction. Telescoping frames are side mounted, and their design allows the pulley and bearings to be cantilevered outside of the conveyor frame.
Center Pull Take-Up Frames provide versatility to a wide variety of applications. Like Narrow & Wide Slot Take-Up Frames, these frames are in-line units, allowing tensioning force to be applied to the center of the bearing housing. Center Pull Take-Up Frames are top mounted and a variety of Wide Slot Take-Up Bearings can be used.
PCI Top Angle Take-Up Frames offer heavy duty rugged construction and feature added protection for the threaded adjustment rod. The top angle which protects the adjustment rod is easily removable via two bolts offering access to the bearing. Top Angle Frames are top mounted and use Take-Up bearings with round bottom housings.
Protected Screw Take-Up Frames feature the heaviest and most rugged construction of PCI’s Take-Up Frame products. These heavy duty frames are top mounted and predrilled for use with standard 2-bolt mount style pillow block bearings.
Light Duty Protected Screw Take-Up Frames are used in light bulk and package handling applications where loads are light and there is no impact loading. They feature a split saddle design for easy adjustability.
