Original Press Release:
Intralox's New Belt Reduces Risk in Package Handling and Roller Retrofits
Intralox's new Series 2400 Raised Rib belt...
o Greatly simplifies retrofits of roller curves
o Increases conveying versatility and efficiency
o Reduces new conveyor construction costs
o Potentially increases throughput
The interior deck of Intralox's new belt stands 0.5 inch (12.7 mm) taller than its edge modules-a design that allows packages and containers to overhang the belt edges and side wearstrip without snagging. As a result, the Series 2400 Raised Rib belt can convey a variety of packages without risking the disorientation that can lead to damage and delays.
Intralox's Series 2400 Raised Rib belt is also key to helping plants get rid of the jams, downtime, and other costly problems that afflict powered roller curves. The new belt's versatility makes retrofits of roller conveyor curves much easier because it eliminates the need for tight, unforgiving radius measurements. Plants retrofitting roller curves can be confident that Intralox's EZ Roller Retrofit(TM) Radius Components and Series 2400 Raised Rib belt will fit existing roller curves and provide the necessary clearance.
When planning new conveyor installations, plants can reduce conveyor construction costs and still achieve proper clearance by specifying a relatively narrow Series 2400 Raised Rib belt. Additionally, Intralox's new belt allows plants to convey packages with the long side facing forward, thereby boosting throughput without increasing conveyor speed or size.
Intralox invented modular plastic belting (MPB) over 30 years ago and remains the world's largest exclusive supplier of MPB. Intralox is also the only MPB company to offer written, money-back guarantees for belt performance and on-time emergency shipping.
