CamEDGE is the strongest, edge-driven spiral system belt available, according to CES, and has an extended belt life.
The CamEDGE is designed for cooling and proofing processes, but is also functional for freezers and chillers. CamEDGE, in combination with an edge-driven spiral system, allows plants to modernise and increase throughput, claimed the company.
The cageless system and spiral belt reduces floor footprints and can be configured around structural columns and other places where traditional spirals cannot be built, the company reported.
“As manufacturing footprint optimisation (MFO) becomes more important, bakers can choose spiral conveyors using CamEDGE that allow coils, fans and conditioning systems to be placed in the centre of the conveyor,” said Mike Truitt, CES international sales director.
“Ultimately, it means original equipment manufacturers can decrease costs for customers by eliminating cages. This can also mean a lower-cost entry point for certain customers who have yet to purchase a spiral conveyor, but desire to do so.”
“Cleaning is quicker and easier since the belt represents 85 percent of the entire system,” said Tom Perdue, CES product development engineer. “And no cage means there is no middle structure to clean and no bar caps to maintain.
“The belt’s edge-drive design eliminates bull chains or tooth segments to maintain, repair or replace,” added Perdue, “and there’s no overdrive to set, adjust or check.”
