The PowerTwist roller drive from Fenner Drives serves as an alternative to conventional endless conveyor V-belts. A link-style belt, it’s designed with a flat top surface that allows improved roller contact. Because it has the same ride height as endless V-belt, the PowerTwist requires no conveyor modifications. Aside from the improved coupling with the roller, the main advantage for this link-style belt is it can be made to any length — as opposed to V-belts which require engineers to design conveyors around standard lengths.
