Intralox claims that its new 7.5" Sideflexing Flat Top belt should
allow manufacturers to carry out retrofits of high-maintenance
steel chains and fragile plastics chains on curved conveyors much
more easily.

Developed specifically for the bakery industry, the company claims that a single Intralox Sideflexing belt can be installed in tough conveying applications such as bakery pan handling lines to significantly reduce belt downtime, maintenance and belt replacement costs.

The belt is available in the 7.5" industry standard width, and features a tabbed hold-down system. Each belt has a different hold-down tab width to ensure that Intralox's new solution fits a variety of standard conveyor tracks.

The plastic surface is designed to eliminate pan wear, which should significantly reduce pan replacement costs. There is also no chance of metal contamination.

No lubrication is necessary, and Intralox​ claims that the belt creates less noise than metal chains.
