TGW Systems (Formerly Ermanco)
XenoRol Line Shaft Conveyors
XenoRol rollers are driven by frictional force with pretensioned polyurthane belts which are driven from a line shaft. This delivers a fixed amount of torque from the line shaft to the rollers and allows the drive pulleys
to slip on the shaft like a clutch. The advantage of this design is the ability to power straight sections and
curves from a single drive with minimum accumulation pressure. Installation, wiring, controls and design are available.
