NEWBURYPORT, Mass. ―KLEENLine, powered by ProMach, introduces at Pack Expo Las Vegas 2015, September 28-30, the company’s latest solution for lane switch conveying. The new modular KLEENLine lane switch conveyor is faster, quieter, and smaller than previous solutions. It offers customers an outstanding price and performance conveying solution. (KLEENLine Pack Expo Booth C-3621)
The new lane switch conveyor is rated at up to 325 feet per minute (FPM), an increase of nearly double that of other solutions in the lane switch series. The use of timing belts instead of a chain drive system makes for quieter operation. Both full- and partial-wash down options are available. The lane switch conveyor is a standalone module that can be added to existing production lines.
Designed for applications where multiple downstream machines are fed by a single upstream line, the KLEENLine lane switch module accepts products in a single lane and diverts them into multiple lanes, feeding cartoners, case packers, and other secondary and tertiary packaging operations. The module’s flexible design allows for a range of conveying configurations.
At Pack Expo KLEENLine will also showcase a sanitary reciprocating shuttle conveyor for processing and packaging lines. The reciprocating shuttle conveyor’s uniform product distribution and fast cycle times ensure optimum results. Transferring product from single file to rows, the reciprocating shuttle conveyor can be used for a variety of sanitary applications, including but not limited to: array formation, tray loading, oven loading, multi-tier cooling conveyor loading, and feeding right angle transfers. With variable speeds, belt widths, and retraction lengths, the KLEENLine reciprocating shuttle conveyor is suitable for a wide range of food and pharmaceutical products.
The Pack Expo demonstration also features an integrated 90-degree fabric belt turn conveyor. The belt turn conveyor module is ideal for handling products that may otherwise be damaged by a side flexing modular plastic chain. The FDA approved fabric is quite flexible – this flexibility provides for a wide range of turn geometries in a small footprint. The tight-nose end roller enables gentle product handling in transitions with existing equipment or other KLEENLine conveyors. This active demonstration at Pack Expo also features a robotic pick-and-place application. KLEENLine’s automated robotic solutions are designed to accommodate a maximum range of product types, product numbers, product orientation, and dynamic environments.
