A modular plastic belt conveyor system from FlexLink is said to be an efficient solution for the transportation of large individual items and flows of smaller products

Everything in the wide belt conveyor, from the smallest component to horizontal plain bends and fully functioning conveyor modules, is standardised for easier engineering, simple maintenance and trouble-free operation. The modularity in design is said to make assembly and modifications effortless and the system can be adapted to many different requirements.

“This is what our customers demand – a standardised, modular plastic belt conveyor that is quiet, sturdy, safe and with high reliability,” says Göran Abbestam, product manager at FlexLink for aluminium and pallet conveyors.

“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 Abbestam. “We have worked hard to eliminate potential pinch points and obtain very low noise level. The flat, smooth belt surface minimises 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 626mm 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 length up to 15m allows efficient and simple layouts in three dimensions without additional elevators in constant flow. With a maximum conveyor speed of 40m/min, the capacity is setting new standards for modular belt conveyors.

“We have reached 100 per cent modularity and new capacity levels with regards to the conveyor speed. Last but not least, the design solution opens the door for future developments,” concludes Abbestam.
