Ashworth Bros., Inc. introduces Omni-Pro 150 1½-in.-pitch belting. Its design allows the belt to minimize cage bar wear, maintenance costs and downtime in the most demanding high-tension spiral applications. Omni-Pro 150 withstands spiral/turn-curve tensions of 400 lb for 100,000 cycles vs. competing belts rated for 50,000 cycles. The new 360° buttonless-weld technology, using a “zero tension” design, permits a higher load-bearing capacity. Omni-Pro’s state-of-the-art link design includes a patented “protrusion leg,” preventing welds from contacting spiral cage bars and permitting the belt to run smoother with less system wear. Turn ratios range from 1.6 to 2.5, and belts are available in even widths from 24 to 60 in. Phone (800) 682-4594; Web www.ashworth.com
