Ashworth Bros. introduces the ¾-inch pitch Omni-Pro 075 in its line of spiral/turn-curve conveyor belts. The shorter pitch of the Omni-Pro 075 is ideal for small products and closer transfers. The increased strength of the Omni-Pro comes from the 360-degree buttonless welds utilizing a “zero tension” design which allows a higher load bearing capacity. The design includes a patented “protrusion leg” that prevents welds from contacting spiral cage bars and permits the belt to run smoother with less system wear.
