The SmartFlex flexible chain conveyor platform, available in an additional 85 mm width standard option, gives designers more options for applications in medical as well as packaging, food, assembly and other industries. With this addition, SmartFlex Conveyors are now available in 4 standard widths: 65 mm (2.6 in.), 85 mm (3.3 in.), 105 mm (4.1 in.) and 150 mm (5.9 in.). Other sizes that can be specially ordered include: 45 mm (1.8 in.), 180 mm (7.1 in.) and 260 mm (10.2 in.).
These conveyors are engineered to exact customer specifications and shipped in sub-assemblies for fast and easy installation. With the Online Configurator D-Tools, users can design and engineer simple or complex conveyors to meet their needs in minutes. This configuration tool delivers a complete 3D CAD assembly model for instant validation of fit.
Accessories such as infeed and exit powered transfers allow smooth end transfers for products as small as 3 in. in diameter. For additional flexibility to move product up or down and around equipment, the SmartFlex Helical Curve, Spiral, and Alpine conveyors are available.
The SmartFlex Helical Curve allows incline or decline movement through corners and straights, and provides capability for vertical incline with minimal space. The SmartFlex Spiral is capable of twisting 360° degree turns to move product vertically with a small footprint. Both the helical and spiral conveyors have chain design that allows the conveyor to maintain speeds and loads through the angled curve.
