A low cost, bi‐directional, compact, low tension belt tensioner was needed for a material supply station.

This design allows for maximum pulley wrap angle that is consistent between clockwise and counter

clockwise operation. This design is compact and low cost. It allows for maximum torque transmission

from the drive motor to the belt while adding minimal tension to the drive belt above the load that is

being rotated. This allows for the key advantages of a smaller drive motor and least wear and tear on

the system.
