Knuckleback Straight Line Friction Drive


The Knuckleback belt increases belt life and reduces the total cost of ownership for metal fabricators by decreasing downtimes. The belt’s name derives from the reinforced, reversed weld of the joint (knuckle) between the rod with each flat spiral wire end (back) to the preceding joint. As stainless steel conveyor belts naturally stretch in high temperature operations, Knuckleback’s flat surface and extended, stronger spiral are significant advantages.
