When using CamEDGE in a cageless system, baked goods can enter and exit on the same plane which eliminates the need for transfer equipment and accessories.
Custom configurations are available, including round, oval, in-low/out-low and in-high/out-high. Belt widths are offered up to 1219 mm (48 inches). It is also applicable for use in some protein (meat, poultry, fish) food processing.
“As manufacturing footprint optimization (MFO) becomes more important, bakers can choose spiral conveyors using CamEDGE that allow coils, fans and conditioning systems to be placed in the center of the conveyor,” said Mike Truitt, sales director, Cambridge International.
According to Truitt, CamEDGE belts utilize a robust, drive link on the outer edges that reduces component flexing during sprocket engagement.
“The stainless steel belt’s hold-down tabs eliminate “Christmas treeing” (lifting) associated with traditional spiral designs which prevents the possibility of catastrophic failure,” he added.
Cambridge will exhibit CamEDGE at Anuga FoodTec at Anuga FoodTec in Cologne, Germany, March 24-27.
