Plastic modular conveyor belts offer advantages

The plastic modular conveyor belts, providing support for efficient and safe conveying of industrial and food products.
These modular conveyor belts reportedly offer significant advantages over conventional conveyor belts. The modular conveyor belts are lightweight and therefore require light support structures, such as low-power motor equipment, which reduces energy costs.
These modular conveyor belts also offer enhanced safety to workers who handle them directly. All materials used in the manufacture of this range are aseptic and non-toxic, with approval from the US Food and Drug Administration for direct contact with food.
Because there is no need for the application of soap-and-water lubricant sprinkling to these production lines, working conditions are improved, costs are reduced and the problem of wet wrappings is eliminated. Standard plastic materials include acetals, which offer dimensional stability and are highly resistant to loads. They are one of the thermoplastics with the lowest friction coefficient, which means they are suited for the conveying of accumulation containers that can slide along the modular conveyor belt without damaging its surface. They are stable to humidity, have a high fatigue resistance and withstand surface abrasion.
