Impact Cradle

Serve & protect

We took impact design a step further and created the impact cradle. Traditionally-designed impact beds do a great job of protecting your conveyor belt from the force of falling material. However, gaps in support leave your belting vulnerable to punctures, rips and tears. That same space – created when the sides of the bed meet the base – can also be a catch point for fugitive material.

Meet the impact cradle. Can you see how its cornerless u-shape matches the contour of your conveyor belt? It eliminates any space between bed and belt.

The picture above shows our Impact Cradle. The frame matches the same footprint as an idler and those black impact cartridges are segmented. Save money and replace cartridge pads individually
because the cartridges simply slide on or off the steel frame.

  • Belt widths 24” or 72” (609mm – 1,828mm)
  • Diameters 5″ – 7″ (127mm – 177mm)
  • Troughing angles 20° or 35°
