SMALL FOOTPRINT FLEXIBILITY
Dorner has improved its FlexMove Helix Conveyors with several new enhancements, including D-Tools accessibility and shorter lead times, both of which make for a more responsive, user-friendly experience. FlexMove Helix Conveyors allow for tight turns and a small footprint, providing facilities with greater flexibility in layout for applications such as accumulation, buffering, cooling product and more. The addition of D-Tools, Dorner’s online conveyor configurator, gives product engineers, plant managers and others the ability to easily download CAD models to design Helix Conveyors to fit their exact application in a matter of minutes. D-Tools, which includes 2D and 3D CAD libraries, allows users to construct simple or complex conveyor packages.
CONVEYOR CLEANING TOOLS
ASGCO announces the latest addition to their line of Secondary Belt Cleaner products for bulk material handling applications. The U-Scrape Secondary Cleaner’s unique “U” shape design conforms to the return side of the belt, which allows the blade to maintain the maximum pressure in the center of the belt where the majority of the carryback material builds up. The blade is offered in two options, solid urethane, or with tungsten carbide tips embedded in urethane. With its curved U-shape blade, the U-Scrape blade tips are in constant contact with the belt to give you the highest cleaning efficiency, especially in tough applications.
