Take-up frames accommodate conveyor belt stretching while maintaining tension. Take-up frames allow take-up pulleys to operate correctly by reducing drive pulley slippage, enabling your production lines to run safely, smoothly, and efficiently.
Take-up frames in conveyor belt systems allow operators to adjust the system and keep proper belt tension on the drive pulley, preventing belt slippage. At Hoffmeyer, we offer several styles of take-up frames with a wide variety of adjustability levels, maintenance requirements, and mounting configurations.
Gravity take-up frames are appropriate for many applications. These take-up systems are designed to include a standard assembly of 3 pulley assemblies: a lever arm and support chains. Gravity take-up frames automatically adjust for belt stretch and are engineered to maintain proper belt tension. Gravity take-up frames are standard equipment on Hoffmeyer conveyor belts, but if space or cost is an issue, we can provide other tensioner set-ups.
Hoffmeyer take-up frames are available in many varieties: narrow slot, wide slot, center pull, top angle, and heavy-duty protected screw. These options allow for the accommodation of shaft sizes ranging from 1/2″ to 5″. These frames are also available in standard travel lengths from 1-1/2″ to 60″. Hoffmeyer take-up frames are offered in carbon steel and stainless steel. Upon request, we can add an ACME threaded rod to your take-up frame.
