This latest generation belt runs on tracks, requiring practically no lubrication. It is a new stainless steel cross-bar conveyor made with special links whose main technical features are illustrated below. Special self-lubricating plastic elements are inserted on the links. They are shaped underneath to form the shoe that allows the belt to slide on the rails, whilst the upper part is shaped to hold the product in place.
A particular feature of the drive system is its special plastic wheels that, in addition to minimizing noise and friction, have a special engage/release system that makes maintenance/adjustments much simpler, allowing all such work to be performed extremely quickly.
Depending on the application, the belt is supplied either with a stainless steel mesh or a plastic mesh, suitable for operating temperatures anywhere between +120°C and -40°C. Since it does not have the central structure that drum-type spirals typically have, the system allows air to flow freely, thus optimizing the various heat treatments. This particular feature also makes cleaning that much easier.
