Sustainable and clean packaging concepts are important contributors in the reduction of losses in food production and supply chain. The latest development from FlexLink, our new wide belt conveyor – WLX, sets new standards for cleaning process time and results.
For operators, the cleaning process is fast and easy. “We are extremely proud of this design, because we’ve succeeded in optimizing both product safety and hygiene to a very high level. Following the industry requirements and regulations. For instance, flat surfaces have been eliminated and there are no hollow bodies or crevices where bacteria will grow” says Tommy Karlsson, Innovation Manager at FlexLink.
The new conveyor is safe, silent, and ergonomic. The FlexLink solution allows for operators to easily lift the chain for cleaning. Operator safety has been served for by thorough design work resulting in minimal openings – preventing pinch points. The absence of sharp points and edges also contribute to operator safety. The FlexLink design offers a low noise level, benefiting the factory environment.
With the FlexLink, innovative design is always at the top of our list. The WLX platform design enables refined standardization benefiting factories offering good hygiene and trouble-free operation. Total cost of ownership is always a concern for customers, and is considerably reduced by features of the FlexLink WLX platform. The new design and sophisticated solution offers quick and efficient processes saving substantial time – allowing more time for production.
Once installed, downtime is minimal due to the robust design, minimal power requirements, water and detergent consumption. These characteristics also help to reduce total cost of ownership.
The WLX platform is a wide modular plastic belt conveyor that is available as components, modules, or as a complete system. The system is available in various widths and suited for handling pouches, liquid carton packaging, cases, bundles, trays or smaller products in mass flow. The belt is available in 304 mm (12 in.), 456 mm (18 inch) and 608 mm (24 inch) widths.
