Field-proven and dependable Flex-Turn® units gently convey products in process around corners while maintaining proper product alignment. They offer the tightest level transfer and smallest inside turning radius available with an open mesh belt. Smooth, non-collapsing product handling minimises potential damage to delicate products. The compact design solves tight production line space problems.
The Flex-Turn® range offers choices of size, belt width and configuration, providing a turn conveyor to suit almost every situation. Turns through 90° or 180° are standard, though other angles from 45° to 180° are available.
With a total of thirteen different sizes of belt, left and right hand can be specified and a range of angles between 45° to 180°, there is a Flex-Turn® Conveyor for almost every application. Our standard drive motors and controllers are supplied with IP66 enclosure protection and OS2 surface protection (drive motor only) to ensure suitability for intensive wash down processes. If required, customer specified drive systems can be fitted to suit each individual application.
A variable-frequency drive (VFD) can be fitted alongside the drive motor to provide a stop/start function and speed control. As standard, this is housed inside our Standard Conveyor Control Panel, featuring a fully stainless steel enclosure and emergency stop button. Alternatively, an invertek E3 Optidrive controller can be supplied with plastic enclosure and no emergency stop function.
