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.

The end user works within the Pharmaceutical industry to supply vaccines of various different specifications. The requirement arose for a set of custom Flex-Turn® Conveyors and Flat-Flex® Conveyor belts for purpose-built sterilisation rooms.
Inside the sterilisation room, electron-beam radiation and hydrogen peroxide are regularly used to clean the environment and product passing through. Therefore, any solution offered must be resistant to corrosion, or inert, but must also suit the restraints required by the Pharmaceutical industry.
The Wire Belt Technical Sales team consulted with and worked in partnership with the customer to alter the base design of a Model 316-254 Flex-Turn® top assembly, allowing for a change in materials and component design. Numerous trials were performed to test the suitability of the newly selected materials and the design of new running gear within the conveyor circuit.
The customer has now purchased over 50 units which have been implemented across multiple different sterilisation rooms throughout the Pharmaceutical industry, which are still running to this day as emphasised by regular spares orders.
