Conveyor Belt Drives

A Combination/Take-Up Drive is a belt drive and take-up unit all within one skid. This type of drive uses commonly available drive components including a shaft mounted reducer, v-belts and belt sheaves making the drive less expensive than special designed units. The Combination Drive/Take-Up is widely used and a popular choice among those interested in quick installation and already constructed alignment.

Benefits of Combination Drive/Take-Up:

  • quick installation
  • quick transport from one location to another as both drive and take-up are on one movable base
  • desirable for short runs — 1500-1800 feet
  • no alignment of components necessary
  • common components that are readily available and less expensive

The Combination Drive/ Take-Up is available in any desired belt width and horsepower/voltage required
