Flexlink has launched the X65 conveyor platform, which the company said offers twice the strength compared to today’s standards and “triples user value”.
It offers “a high flexibility in line design as well as an easily reconfigurable and small footprint”. With the increased strength the amount of conveyors is also reduced.
Göran Abbestam, product manager at Flexlink said: “The doubled conveyor strength has a dramatic effect on the service life and maintenance intervals of systems installed.
“In addition, the layouts can be made simpler as fewer drives and transfers are required for a given layout due to the increased maximum conveyor length.
“To the user, this has a substantial, positive impact with less complexity and a lower cost of installation.”
The new conveyor can help tissue companies reduce the total cost of ownership by setting new standards in strength, speed, cost of installation and maintenance and energy consumption.
He added: “The new conveyor system reduces engineering time and ramp-up time also ensuring a trouble-free operation. “The double strength, patented chain design allows high capacity, longer service life and a lower number of drive units.”
It also has lower energy consumption with reduced system friction due to unique and exact design of all sliding surfaces and applying of latest drive technology with high efficiency drive units as standard.
