How Does It Work

Belt Edge Engagement

The DirectDrive System engages the belt edge directly with the drum, simplifying operation.

Load Reduction Zone

Our revolutionary load reduction zone prolongs the life of the belt and its components by significantly reducing tension and operating with zero slip.

DirectDrive Patented Design

Its dual-diameter configuration keeps the belt engaged with the drive teeth on the spiral drum.

The DirectDrive System is without a doubt a superior technology to metal belting. It has helped optimize our line efficiency, and we do not have to babysit our spiral anymore!
