Cambridge Engineered Solutions has introduced PacLite, a new lighter weight, flatwire conveyor belt with variable openings ideally suited for three segments of the food processing industry: Packaging, baking, and rock traps used for root crops.
Manufactured using a new proprietary process developed by the company’s engineers, PacLite is 30-50 per cent stronger than a standard flatwire belt and weighs 10 per cent less than its predecessor, PacTitan®.
“Since our inception, Cambridge has excelled at working to continuously improve the design and durability of our conveyor belts to solve the operational challenges our customers face including safety and hygiene, cleaning and maintenance and energy efficiency,” explains Bob Maine, Cambridge Director of Engineering. “PacLite represents our attention to detail in working with manufacturers to account for the total cost of ownership of conveyor belts used in their plants.”
PacLite’s weight, strength and open area make it particularly suited for: packaging during can washing processes for foods and beverages; baking ovens where breads, cakes and other larger goods require pans for movement along the processing line, and rock traps where dirt, stones, stems, and debris need to be separated from root crops like potatoes, carrots and beets.
PacLite is available in both standard and heavy-duty versions and features Cambridge’s NokLokTM picket technology, a proprietary form of perfect and interlocking links that increases strength, durability and product stability and reduces belt stretch and distortion.
