With many uncertainties during this time it is difficult to plan for all changes. Dorner Service recommends the following to minimize downtime and keep production going:
Did you know that the tails of a conveyor account for only 8 to 20% of its overall price, but if they fail, that damage can be as high as 55% of the conveyor’s total value? The takeaway is – don’t neglect your tails, or it may cost you some serious money!
The tails of your conveyor play an important role in efficiently moving product. One end of the tail drives the belt, while the other tail keeps the belt properly aligned. Together, they help push the belt and keep it straight as it moves around the conveyor. The lifespan of tails is determined by application, environment, usage and other factors; on average they typically last about three to four years. However, regular maintenance and inspection is necessary to ensure they reach that projected lifespan.
