Innovative Replacement Idler for Restricted-access Conveyors

Komatsu ASGCO’s One-Sided Slide-lers provide the ability to change idler rolls under a conveyor loading skirt area without having to remove adjacent belt idlers. The unit is a modularly designed product that allows workers to remove the wing and center roll hangers for easy replacement of idler rolls. The One-Sided Slide-ler minimizes downtime; for environments with extreme access limitations, the One-Sided Slide-ler can be maintained from just one side of the conveyor system—ideal for systems with limited access, such as when a conveyor is located against a wall or elevated with a catwalk on only one side.
