Low-Back Pressure Conveyor
The System Plast™ branded low-back pressure accumulation belt adds another dimension of sustainability to conveying by eliminating the need for cardboard trays under shrink-wrapped packs. Consisting of half-inch (12.7 mm) acetal rollers, the conveyor surface is specifically designed to ensure support and stability for PET bottles with petaloid bottoms, but can be used for a variety of containers. The conveyor surface provides forward movement of the product, but easily rolls under shrink-wrapped packs during accumulation, minimizing pressure on bottles at the head of the queue and eliminating the need for protective cardboard trays. Tight roller spacing eliminates gaps and provides optimum product stability. The small pitch diameter and use of a 0.75" (19 mm) nose bar also allows tight end transfers. Precision-molded premium plastics and austenitic steel retention pins maximize conveyor life and utilization, while also reducing noise.
