Tighteners elements are the basis for automatic tensioners for tensioning of chains or belts during operation.
They consist of a lever that is flexibly mounted between two squares and attached to the base of the machine. The elastic part consists of rubber elastic segments. The tensioning pulleys of the chains or belts are attached to the lever with a screw.
It is a universal flexible element that can simultaneously perform the functions of suspension, guidance, tensioning and damping.
