Plastic fantastic as a conveying solution

Plastic fantastic as a conveying solution
In response to growing customer demand, LAC Conveyors has launched its first range of plastic modular conveyors. Designed to provide a cost-effective alternative to mild steel and aluminium conveyors, the versatile range of durable HMW polythene constructed systems could also save valuable production time.

LAC Conveyors tells us that its plastic modular conveyors can be built to order in almost half the time of their mild steel and aluminium counterparts. In addition to this, the durable but flexible construction of the systems vastly reduces any maintenance requirement and crucially, the plastic belts are easily removed for cleaning or maintenance without major downtime or the need for special tools. 

Built for use across a variety of manufacturing environments, from product and component manufacture to food production and preparation, the plastic modular conveyor range is constructed from 25mm plastic which is resistant to corrosion to ensure durability throughout production. It is also chemically inert to ensure that the conveyor itself does not contaminate the products that it's handling. 

In addition to providing a cost-effective solution to stainless steel, the new conveyor range will also allow for a 'change of angle'. Swan neck conveyors and double swan neck conveyors can be complicated and expensive when manufactured from mild steel or aluminium, but the plastic conveyors are simpler and cheaper to produce for these configurations.
