Today’s snack and bakery companies need belts and conveyors that provide reliability to keep production steady, versatility to handle different types of products, sanitary design that allows easy access for efficient cleaning and maintenance, and the ability to detach and reattach them with as few tools as possible to account for issues like allergy concerns.
Customers of Nercon, Neenah, WI, first and foremost request machines that keep production moving smoothly, says Tom Van Doorn, vice president, sales. “Machines do break down. The name of the game is to produce as much as you can, and maintain capacity. If the time needed to make adjustments is minimized, that’s money in the bank.”
