Slat band conveyors are available with either plastic or hygienic stainless steel chain and are often used for handling small packs and/or when rapid speed and accuracy is essential.
Sometimes referred to as plastic chain conveyors, they provide for low noise safe conveying of product besides being extremely strong and of robust construction, which gives these conveyors long lasting reliable performance. They can be supplied in mild steel frames or stainless steel where food or pharmaceutical clean room standard is required, with fixed or variable speed drives, with or without side guides and can be designed with an adjustable height facility and grip-top inserts for inclines.
The slat band conveyors are able to transfer product around tight radius bends using a single drive and as they can be supplied in various widths, are ideal for accumulation applications such as in food and beverages, pharmaceutical, processing and packaging Industries, but can equally transport heavy duty products. Because of the low friction, sprocket drive and smooth surface of slat conveyors they are ideally suited for use in the labelling and packaging industry whilst the addition of wheels on the top surface form Low Back Pressure (LBP) chain to dramatically reduce pressure when accumulating a larger number of products.
CSL can provide complete integrated and PLC controlled systems that can operate as stand alone or be incorporated into new or existing production/packaging areas.
A range of modular slat and matt top belt conveyors provide low friction with high performance. These units are ideal for transporting all types of products horizontally, up inclines and round corners and are frequently installed in the Food, Beverage and Pharmaceutical Industries as they are easy to keep clean.
