Wood Conveyor Belt Cores

Throughout our years in the industry, Franke’s has made a name for itself by being the top solid wood belt core supplier in the United States.

We specialize in both light duty and heavy duty belt cores – each built with solid wood construction. That means no compressed wood particles. No chipping. No fracturing. No swelling. These products are pure wood, through and through. These cores also weigh considerably less than other cores being used in the industry, without having to sacrifice durability & longevity.
