New modular wide belt conveyor
February 10, 2012
The wide belt conveyor, from FlexLink (www.flexlink.com), is standardized for easy engineering, easy maintenance and a trouble-free operation, everything from the smallest component to horizontal plain bends and fully functioning conveyor modules. The modularity in design makes assembly and modifications easy and the system can be adapted to any requirements.
“FlexLink’s new conveyor system meets the highest standards in reliability and safety – we have looked into every detail with regards to operator safety and working environment.” adds Göran Abbestam. “We have worked hard to eliminate potential pinch points and obtain a very low noise level. The flat, smooth belt surface minimizes the risk of scratches and the sturdy guide rails prevent items from falling off, allowing for the safe handling of sensitive products.”
The conveyor is available as components, modules or a complete system. The three widths, 322, 424 and 626 millimeters make it suited for handling cartons, bundles, bags and other large individual items that require the stable support of a wide chain. Equally important, it allows large flows of smaller products.
The vertical bends and a length up to 15 meters allows efficient and simple layouts in three dimensions without additional elevators in constant flow. With a maximum conveyor speed of 40 m/min, the capacity is setting new standards for modular belt conveyors.
