Save money, time in spiral upkeep
May 21, 2010
Ashworth Bros.' new Rack & Roll™ Crate is an efficient solution for storing and installing ExactaStack™, the company's self-stacking spiral replacement belt.
Ashworth shipped a complete “change out” ExactaStack™ self-stacking belt -- utilizing its new Rack & Roll™ Crate system -- to reduce service costs and quickly complete the install. Rack & Roll™ is designed for easy crate handling and quick roll-out, roll-in belt replacements for self-stacking spirals. Food processors can now benefit from saving on both lower belt cost with ExactaStack™ and lower installation costs with Rack & Roll™.
Ashworth Factory Service recently installed the complete “change out” for the world’s largest producer of frozen potato specialties.
“The technicians at Ashworth Factory Service are knowledgeable and provide very capable installation services," said the potato plant engineer. "Ashworth is easy to work with and installed the ExactaStack™ belt to meet our plant schedule.”
The combination of Rack & Roll™ and the ExactaStack™ Turn-key Belt Replacement from Ashworth Factory Service is an easy and cost effective solution for food processors to keep their stackers constantly running at peak performance. ExactaStack™ belts are spooled onto Rack & Roll™ Crates; each crate has a footprint and height of less than 4-feet, making the belt easy to stack, store, and maneuver.
Installation of a self stacking belt with the Rack & Roll™ Crate is simplified by rolling out the new ExactaStack™ belt directly from the crate to the in-feed of the stacker. The old belt is conveniently rolled in an empty Rack & Roll™ crate from the out-feed.
“When we began manufacturing ExactaStack™ we faced the problem of storing, handling and installing the self-stacking spiral belts,” states Joe Lackner, vice president for Ashworth.
He add, “We looked at the crates from the competition and theirs were 10-feet long and awkward to store, move and unload, which increased the risk of damaging the belt. We saw this as an opportunity to help our customers with a better solution.” -- Ashworth Bros. Inc.
