Company: Cambridge Engineered Solutions
Equipment Snapshot: Cambridge Engineered Solutions (acquired by Rexnord in 2016) has introduced the Rexnord1200 Series MatTop Chain, a new line of side-flexing plastic modular conveyor belts designed for moving a wide range of packaged and non-packaged food products in radius applications.
The chain can be installed on new OEM conveyor equipment or used to upgrade existing systems to carry heavier loads around corners at higher rates of speed.
The 1200 Series offers a tighter turn radius than other products on the market while reaching maximum speeds up to 246 ft/min (75 m/min) depending on the load of the chain. Smooth product handling is achieved due to the large support surface.
Food and beverage industry customers for the 1200 Series include bakeries; packaged salad, fruit and vegetables suppliers; snack food manufacturers; and refrigerated and frozen food processors.
“The 1200 Series is the first plastic chain product line to be offered to the North American market by Cambridge Engineered Solutions following Rexnord’s acquisition of the company,” said Lucas Knapp, Rexnord global director, strategic marketing. “This new product demonstrates our diversity of offerings to the food industry and our unique strength as the world’s only manufacturer of metal and plastic chain and conveyor components.”
The 1200 Series is available in four distinct versions providing solutions to all side-flexing needs.
