Truss Frame

Syntron Material Handling continues to lead the industry with a commitment to produce the most innovative, specialized belt conveyor equipment available to assist you in solving your unique material handling requirements.


IMG_0571We are very proud of our patented “Link-Belt ® Truss Frame Idler” for CEMA D load requirements. Dimensionally interchangeable with all CEMA C/D Series idlers, the Syntron Material Handling Truss Idler features a lightweight frame member that is fabricated from round bar stock to reduce the frame weight by 50%.  An added benefit of this truss frame design is a 40% increase in load rating as compared to the conventional CEMA D inverted angle frame.   The design of the frame, with rounded surfaces and the lowest roll gap available (0.25”), ensures against costly material spillage buildup around the idler that may impede production.  The Link-Belt ® Truss Idler is available in a variety of materials: 304SS, 316SS and carbon steel.  This is especially critical in today’s markets for the handling of harsh chemicals, phosphate, salt, acids and many other corrosive materials that tend to shorten the life of your equipment.  For these caustic applications we complete the offering by placing the premium HDPE polyethylene rollers into the stainless steel or carbon steel frames.  The polyethylene rollers greatly extend the life of your belt conveyor equipment while reducing costly maintenance and downtime.

Whether you goal is to reduce equipment weight or to extend the life of equipment that is subjected to harsh material handling environment, the Link-Belt ® Truss Frame Idler is your ultimate solution.
