Chicago, ProMat, April 3, 2017 –
Flow Turn Inc, the innovative material handling belt curve manufacturer is introducing the new redesigned Flatop.
- The Flatop Curve offers customers a chance to have a belted curve that required no sides or belt guides above the belt surface to convey items that could spill out of the boundaries of the curve.
The Flatop allows to have a photo sensors just above the belt itself, no obstruction in height.
- The new Flatop curve design offers big improvements in maintainability, robustness and precision of the curve itself.
Flow Turn utilizes its innovative Precision-Interlocking frame design for unparalled squareness and accuracy of the frame with a 20% to 30% improvement in structural stiffness.
- The second improvement uses welded steel “C” channels with easy-slide in/out heavy duty wear guides. The wear guides have a 50% larger wear surface to significantly increase the life of each guide too. That will take 80% less time to replace when that time may come years down the road
- This improvement allows to increase the rated speed of the curve from 400 fpm to 600 fpm (further reliability testing is still in progress).
