Tight turn radius conveyor

Back to News

Our customer had a problem with a wire belt radius conveyor on their bread line. When the slicers would back up the un sliced bread would back up the conveyor line. When the backup would reach the discharge of a radius conveyor the flights would often catch the loaves of bread causing them to bend. The bent wire flight would then cause a shutdown of the entire line.
After looking at the system a plastic conveyor belt would be a simple solution to solve this problem. The only problem with the plastic belt was most would not be able to turn a tight enough radius to be able to drop in place of the wire belt conveyor. We could have suggested a replacing the entire conveyor and reposition the line to make enough room for the radius requirements of the plastic belt. After checking with several suppliers of plastic radius belts they told us what we wanted to do could not be done. We did not accept that answer and proceeded to find a supplier who thought our idea might work. After reviewing the situation with engineering support of the belt manufacture we had the green light to proceed. We built a drop in conveyor that had a plastic radius belt and completed the install for the customer. We are pleased to report the customer has had great results with this setup.
