New FlexLink soft products conveyor introduced
Jul 19, 2005
A unique new conveyor chain recently developed and introduced by FlexLink is said to be gentle to soft products and offers increased efficiency and service life, even in environments where dust and particulates are a problem.
The new chain features very smooth surfaces and link interfaces for improved gentleness and minimum dust generation in product handling. Moreover, the link interfaces are designed to minimize dust intrusion to the conveyors. Dust intrusion has a considerable negative effect on service life. Significant efforts in design were made to optimize the chain and slide rail contact to enhance service life as well as to minimize friction.
Gentle handling of soft or fragile products is enhanced by the chain material's smooth surfaces, tight tolerances and a different configuration of link interfaces. These interfaces minimize the effects of dust and particle buildup, and the chain and slide rail's construction of wear resistant, low friction materials enhance service life.
