The WLX is an innovative wide belt stainless-steel conveyor that is safe, clean and reduces the total cost of ownership. It is setting new standards in primary and secondary packaging processes for the food industries.
This hygienic conveyor is suitable for all industries where the requirements for hygiene and accessibility are particularly high, from packaged meat and dairy to bread and flour.
The system assures trouble-free operation and long service life. It is ready to be installed in any application area, from primary packaging to end-of-line.
The cleaning process for WLX is fast and easy, setting new standards for results and available process time. The design facilitates simple cleaning procedures and ensures a consistent result. The entire design is remarkably clean with rounded corners and flat surfaces.
Hollow bodies and crevices where pathogens and contaminants tend to get trapped have all been eliminated. In addition, less water and detergents are needed, lowering costs and boosting sustainability.
Operator safety has been prioritised by eliminating pinch points and sharp edges. During operation, the new conveyor is safe and ergonomic. For example, operators use integrated devices to raise the chain, which eliminates heavy lifting. The noise level is also comfortably low, which contributes to a pleasant factory environment.
The WLX conveyor has a robust design and is quick to clean for operating convenience both in dry and wet environments, adding valuable production time. During wet cleaning processes, very little water and detergent is required, which helps keep operating costs down. Energy efficient components lower energy consumption and friction while providing sophisticated line control.
The standardised design and modularity considerably reduces ramp-up time and expands and adapts over time. This increases the versatility and overall efficiency of the line. You’ll never wait long for spare parts either, since they are quickly supplied via our global distribution network.
