Modular Belt Conveyors / Slat Belt Conveyors
Unitech manufactures a wide variety of slat and modular belt conveyors, which are designed to suit the requirements of the industry sector they are supplied to. This ranges from industrial warehousing to food, beverage and pharmaceutical environments. Our core modular belt conveyor design is predominately of a stainless-steel construction. We utilise the latest modular belts on the market to help facilitate the highest quality end product.
Modular belt conveyors are a popular choice with many industries. This is due to the multi-functional properties of the modular belt and its durability. The belt is constructed from interlocking plastic teeth (or modules) which makes the conveyors easy to design and suit a wide range of functions. The system specifically suits wide belt conveyors for packed products in cases or for shrink wrapping lines.
The construction of the belt makes it easy to maintain and clean, which suits lines handling raw products such as fish, meat or vegetables. Modular belt conveyors are ideal for packed or unpacked products and they can be combined with depalletization tables. They are also suitable for flighted elevator conveyors where products need to be conveyed to differing levels.
Due to its durability, the belt can handle hot and sharp products and is therefore used in the bakery industry. An example of this would be as cooling lines for freshly baked goods. The design could incorporate a spiral elevator to allow products to cool before returning to the line for packing. The belt’s flexibility allows us to design our modular belt conveyors with radius bend and tight radius for minimal footprints and floor space.
