Ammeraal Beltech introduces a new range of custom-finished conveyor belts for use in the food processing industry, especially the bakery and confectionery segments.
Semi-automated bakery and confectionery topping and filling lines depend on accurate visual positioning of the product on the conveyor. Conveyor belt specialist Ammeraal Beltech has designed their new Permaline U2 conveyor belts to meet the specific needs of this segment; the belt also comes to market with full EU and FDA food contact approvals.
In a market where the size and shape of the goods carried on the conveyor is rarely the same twice, the pre-printed positioning template on the belt’s surface is produced to the customer’s unique specification.
Be it a pizza, pastry or pie, the Permaline U2 makes it easy for bakery personnel to achieve accurate product positioning on the belt. Giuseppe Allais, Industry Segment Manager Food for Ammeraal Beltech explains that the client’s custom-printed belt layout is precise, highly-visible, and indelible, even in the splice area. It is top-coated with a transparent, wear-resistant food-grade layer that protects the food from the print.
The new second-generation Permaline belt can be easily scraped and cleaned while its enclosed printed surface is an innovative move away from the traditional marking techniques used on such conveyor systems as well as a significant improvement in terms of belt flexibility, durability and hygiene.
Leading Italian pizza maker for the retail and food service markets, SVILA is an early adopter of the Permaline conveyor belt. According to SVILA’s Maintenance Manager Mr Serfaustini, the Permaline belt is certified for food contact according to the highest quality standards, eliminating any risk of contamination from the print while also enabling simple cleaning.
SVILA recommends the Permaline belt to all food businesses seeking high quality standards in food positioning.
