New Elesa conveyor components allow the creation of support structures for production lines in diverse industrial markets, such as bottling, packaging and material handling.
Elesa now offers new roller sides and central guides, linear guide rails, also with shaped profile and a series of accessories. These have been added to the already available range of supports and guides, rail brackets and clamps, support bearings and connection joints.
The new side and central guides together with the new articulated side guides are constructed from polyethylene-based (PE) technopolymer, with grey color rollers.
Side guides (GLA series) and central guides (GCA series) are available with anodized aluminum body, acetal resin based (POM) technopolymer supports and AISI 304 stainless steel pins.
The articulated side guides (GLB-1 and GLB-2 series) are modular self-supporting structures for the side guide of products with limited vertical dimensions on conveyor belts. Guide bodies are constructed of acetal resin based (POM) technopolymer and the pins in AISI 304 stainless steel. These guides are also particularly suitable for use in environments in the presence of liquids, subject to frequent washing or in filling areas. The joint in the roller side guides allows an external curvature radius of 500 mm and an internal curvature radius of 350 mm.
For standard products, rollers can be shaped with a spherical contact area, for use with products in cans or in plastic containers; cylindrical contact area, for cartoned products; or with round contact area, for use with glass products.
The linear lateral guides (GLP, GLR and GLT series) are used for the side guide of products with different dimensions on conveyor belts. Brackets are made from AISI 304 stainless steel; the guide profile from polyethylene-based (HMWPE) technopolymer in a natural color, which leaves no traces on the containers, while the stainless steel inserts (pins, screws and nuts) provide a high level of corrosion resistance.
They are characterized by their high wear resistance and low coefficient of friction, making them particularly suitable for high-speed applications.
The GLP-HT series linear lateral guides in PTFE-based (polytetrafluoroethylene) technopolymer are designed for high temperature environments such as ovens, fryers and steam chambers. The GLS linear guide rail with shaped profile in HMWPE (polyethylene) based technopolymer, in natural color and AISI 304 stainless steel support, together with GLC series with shaped profile in black color, are suitable for side guide of products with different dimensions on conveyor belts, even when vertical.
The line is completed by a series of accessories, including closing caps, separation blocks and technopolymer supports, as well as stainless steel profiles.
