01/10/14: Superior Highlights Component Innovations at CONEXPO

Morris, MN – Superior Industries, Inc., a major U.S. manufacturer of conveyor systems and their related components,will launch new material handling, will highlight its latest conveyor component innovations at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 in Las Vegas, with an indoor site in Central Hall (Booth # 51838); and an outdoor site in the brand new Platinum Lot (Booth #7602).

Chevron® Pulley
Versus traditional wing pulleys that trap fugitive material and cause wings to tip or bend, the Superior Industries Chevron Pulley deflects fugitive material out and away, preventing costly belt damage. Also, with its even-wearing rounded contact bars, its continuous belt contact reduces beating action and vibration for quiet operation. The Chevron Pulley will be displayed next to a traditional wing pulley and sales and engineering representatives will be on-hand to discuss the key differences in operation between the two.

Navigator® Return Trainer
Effective in both wet and dry conditions, the Superior Industries Navigator Return Trainer idler maintains proper belt tracking by using the gravity of the belt weight to make the roller shift and thus track the belt. The misaligned belt puts pressure on one side of the training idler, causing the training idler to tilt and guide the belt back to center. Designed as a contact-free product, the return trainer is free of wear parts and any side contact to the belt, leading to longer wear life and less maintenance. Additionally, its rubber lagging sheds material and increases friction, keeping the belt aligned and preventing belt damage.

Exterra® Belt Cleaners
The Superior Industries line of Exterra Belt Cleaners features a patented blade design that’s manufactured with a thicker profile and a beefier tip for more material at a scraper’s point of attack. At ConExpo/Con-Agg, Superior will highlight its Exterra SFL Dual Belt Cleaner, the first and only combination primary and secondary cleaning system to feature two blades on one mounting pole. Also, the system features a one-time tensioning system at setup, requiring no further tensioning during the life of the blade.

Complete Solutions
At the show, Superior Industries will also display a representation of its complete line of conveyor pulleys; and its complete line of CEMA-rated idlers which includes its Moxie® Rolls that shed sticky materials and prevent tracking issues; and its Urathon® Return Rolls that prevent material build-up and significantly increase wear life. Superior will also highlight its Sealing System that prevents material spillage in load zones; and engineers will address the company’s Core System® Design, a package that delivers a single-source for power transmission components, while eliminating the headaches of onsite assemblies and reducing installation time.

Join the Superior Industries Big Game Hunt at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 in Las Vegas from March 4-8, 2014.
