Cambridge Engineered Solutions, the one of the world’s largest metal conveyor belt manufacturer, has introduced CamEDGE, a new cageless spiral system conveyor belt. Designed for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) selling primarily to the baking industry, CamEDGE will debut at Anuga FoodTec in Cologne, Germany on March 24-27.
Positively driven and low in tension, CamEDGE is the strongest, edge-driven spiral system belt available. According to Cambridge, CamEDGE belts utilize a robust, well-supported drive link on the outer edges that reduces component flexing during sprocket engagement. This results in an extended belt life and less chance of component fatigue. Furthermore, the stainless steel belt’s hold-down tabs eliminate “Christmas treeing” (lifting) associated with traditional spiral designs which prevents the possibility of catastrophic failure.
Designed for cooling and proofing processes, but also functional for freezers and chillers, CamEDGE in combination with an edge-driven spiral system, allows plants to modernize and increase throughput. The cageless system and spiral belt reduces floor footprints and can be configured around structural columns and other places traditional spirals can’t be built.
CamEDGE also delivers significant sanitary and maintenance benefits at a time when there is an increased focus on food safety throughout Europe.
Cambridge will have a working cageless spiral system with CamEDGE belt on display for OEMs to see at Anuga FoodTec (Hall 10.1; Stand E075-79). For food processing end-users, Cambridge will be featuring three additional conveyor belts at the global trade fair.
