Reduced Lead Times on Conveyors with V-Guide and Cleated Belts

Posted by Chris Thompson on Sep 21, 2016 9:30:00 AM

We're excited to announce that conveyors using our V-Guide and Cleated Belts now have significantly reduced lead times!

Automation Series Conveyors with V-Guide belts using any of our seven Quick Ship belt materials now carry a seven day lead time. V-Guides are ideal for applications that involve side loading/exiting or applications that benefit from additional methods for keeping the belt centered on the conveyor.

Conveyors with our standard cleated belts, using either an MAA or MAE base material, now carry a seven day lead time as well. The cleats are available in heights of 5mm, 1/2", 1", 2", and 3" and help with maintaining forward motion when the conveyor is on an incline or with products that may roll. This applies to 125 Conveyors and Automation Series Conveyors.

Our new cleats are stronger with a rounded top edge

Posted by Chris Thompson on Dec 8, 2015 10:30:00 AM

Starting today, we've upgraded the design of our cleated belts. The new cleats have thicker walls that are stronger and less likely to bend under the weight of product. They feature a rounded top edge and a base that's not flared but maintains the same weld strength as our previous cleats.

These cleats are available in the Conveyor Configurator immediately.

HydroClean Conveyors now BISSC Certified

Posted by Chris Thompson on Apr 14, 2015 9:01:05 AM

Our HydroClean Sanitary Conveyors are now BISSC Certified! This means they meet the sanitation standards of the baking industry. It also shows our commitment to making HydroClean conveyors easy to clean and free of areas where bacteria could accumulate.

BISSC is the Baking Industry Sanitation Standards Committee, which publishes voluntary standards for the design and construction of bakery equipment. They’re recognized as the definitive sanitation standards for equipment used in the baking industry.

To meet BISSC requirements, HydroClean conveyors must use either a sealed edge (MVB) or totally encapsulated (KVA or KVB) belt.

HydroClean Sanitary Conveyors are now available to be configured and quoted in our easy-to-use online Conveyor Configurator.

Once you've configured your conveyor (or an entire system of conveyors), you'll receive a detailed quote and you'll have the option to download the appropriate 3D CAD models and spec sheets for your chosen conveyor.

HydroClean conveyors feature a hygienic design meant to be easily cleaned in sanitary applications. Their belt, drive, tail and sides/guides can be easily removed without using any tools (see the video). Designed to meet stringent NSF standards for sanitation, they offer a self-draining frame, minimal horizontal surfaces and hex head fasteners to reduce opportunities for bacteria to accumulate.

New, easier-to-use serial number labels appearing soon

Posted by Chris Thompson on Apr 22, 2014 12:38:06 PM

Starting today, we’re applying new serial number labels to all our conveyors. Each label features a customized QR code for each conveyor that — when scanned with a mobile phone or tablet — takes you directly to the appropriate installation manuals and videos for that product. You’ll also be able to register for our 10 Year Warranty or request replacement part quotes directly from the site.

The labels feature a much larger serial number, which should make them easier to read at a distance, and will now appear twice on each conveyor, making them more accessible, especially in applications where one end of the conveyor is blocked by another machine. They’ll now be found on the drive side of the conveyor frame near the tail as well as in our traditional location below the tracking block opposite the drive.

If you need a QR code reader for your phone or tablet, we recommend Scanlife. It’s available on every major mobile platform by visiting getscanlife.com.
