Product Description

Our modular belt conveyors are extremely reliable systems, used to efficiently transport packed (or unpacked products) safely to their required destination. They can also be combined with depalletisation tables.

The belt’s flexibility allows us to design our modular belt conveyors for curved applications, ideal for areas where floor space is limited or where tight turns need to be navigated.

The construction of the belt makes it incredibly easy to maintain and clean – perfect for production lines handling raw products such as fish, meat or vegetables.

Our modular belt conveyors are great for the bakery industries where they are used as cooling lines for freshly baked goods. For example, a typical design would incorporate a spiral conveyor, allowing products to cool before returning to the line for packing.

Due to its high durability, the belt is able to withstand extreme temperature conditions, handling both hot and sharp products without any issue.

The belt is also suitable for flighted elevator conveyors where products need to be conveyed to differing levels.

Plastic Modular Belt Conveyor Design

Modular belt conveyors are a popular choice amongst many industries. This is due to the multi-functional properties of the modular belt and its high durability. And because the belt is constructed from interlocking plastic teeth (or modules), if anything did happen, replacing damaged or worn out parts is easy and quick.

The video above shows a modular belt conveyor being tested in readiness for installation into a large chicken processing company. This particular conveyor will be used as a chicken grading line and has white spacing lines to ensure chicken breasts are placed correctly to allow pieces to be graded by weight.
