Martin Engineering's Martin Idler Aligner is designed to manually fine tune OEM-style self-adjusting idlers
Martin Engineering introduces a conveyor idler aligner that is designed to manually fine tune OEM-style self-adjusting idlers. The Martin Idler Aligner is engineered to ensure precise adjustment, using a handle and comb for course modification, with slots for finer tuning. The aligner bracket mounts to most manufacturers’ self-aligning idlers. To improve safety, the design eliminates the need to tie off idlers to the surrounding structure, and the locking bar features a hole for padlock placement to restrict access and handle movement. The slotted comb on the idler is engineered to provide a range of incremental adjustment settings (±7.5°). The handle can also be allowed to float freely on top of the locking bar to provide course adjustments of ±2.5°.
