Cambridge Engineered Solutions, a division of Cambridge International introduces the next generation of open metal conveyor belting for poultry and food manufacturers.
DURAFLEX EDGE, the patent-pending product features a revolutionary clinched edge design that has undergone rigorous testing to emerge as one of the strongest and most durable conveyor belts on the market.
According to head engineer and project designer Skip Messick, when tested against a competitor’s flex‐style belt, DURAFLEX EDGE lasted up to 39 times longer without distortion, breakage, or metal hits, making it perfect for a wide variety of food processing applications.
DURAFLEX EDGE represents the next generation of metal conveyor belting with the clinched style edge reducing breakage and damage while nearly eliminating all potential for metal hits and product contamination. The patent-pending ‘EDGE’ technology bends with a true hinge in both directions, eliminating friction and metal fatigue, and ensuring proper tracking.
Larry Windsor, Director of Sales and Business Development explains they worked closely with their customers to improve upon the popular DURAFLEX belt, adding that the new technology eliminates production problems experienced by some of their food customers by increasing belt life, decreasing downtime and improving manufacturing operations.
DURAFLEX EDGE conveyor belts leverage the beneficial characteristics of their predecessor including an easy 30-second splicing time to reduce maintenance and replacement time, ease of cleaning, increased carrying capacity and tighter transfer capability. It is one of the most open metal belts available that does not compromise belt strength and handles heavier loads than typical light‐duty conveyor belts.
