Regal Power Transmission Solutions introduced new System Plast® products with a focus on innovation and reliability at interpack in Düsseldorf. The System Plast products maintain leadership in efficiency, noise reduction, hygiene, total cost of ownership, and lubrication reduction. See Regal in Hall 6, Stand 6D01.
The new TopTrac™ curve design provides high speed and load performance in dry applications. This innovative design allows the user to replace only the high-performance Nolu®-SR wear strips so the entire curve assembly can remain intact. Replacement can be accomplished with the curve in position on the conveyor, which drastically reduces downtime and maintenance. The more homogeneous magnetic field results in a quieter chain operation and less energy consumption.
System Plast’s new machined sprockets with bushings instead of nuts, combine a user-friendly design with optimum performance. They feature a reduced number of holes, providing better hygiene and easier access, as well as zero nut rotation and optimum absorption of shear forces resulting in increased strength.
The Heavy Duty sprockets and idlers’ robust design absorbs high forces and allows them to perform well in harsh environments. Dirt is moved away from contact surfaces resulting in longer wear life of chain and sprocket (available with Z12 and 40mm bore). Idler is available with plastic bushings or stainless steel bearings. Sprockets and idlers are a very important part of the conveyor system and their proper design and manufacture are critical in creating an efficient conveyor system.
System Plast’s new Roller Flow belts are a lightweight, low backline pressure solution. The 2120 version offers the shortest transfer possible, smooth product handling of boxes or trays, and improved safety due to its closed surface. It fits regular conveyor constructions and runs on standard sprockets making it well suited for the corrugated and food and beverage industry, as well as logistic and distribution centers and general material handling.
The innovative Silent Nose Bar offers noise reduction when used at idler side of conveyor; up to a 5dB reduction compared to conventional nose bars or round shafts. This results in an important improvement of the line operator’s working environment. Its low coefficient of friction and short transfer possibilities also address other customer issues such as line efficiency and cost savings.
The 2253 vacuum belt is specially designed for can making applications. It offers stable, and even vertical, conveying of empty cans. Hole design provides optimum vacuum effect. The 2253 offers lower friction, less noise and dust and higher speed without lubrication. In the Beverage industry it can be used at vacuum transfers to eliminate down cans from the flow.
System Plast is focused with a drive towards assisting customers achieve sustainability while lowering their total cost of ownership; a global leader in high quality plastic conveyor chains, modular plastic belts, and industry-leading conveying components.
Regal Power Transmission Solutions will also exhibit a SealMaster® maintenance-free high phosphorous nickel plated bearing insert that requires no re-greasing. The land riding design ensures that the H1 Food Grade grease is in the ball path and a High Performance (triple) Seal keeps dirt and moisture out. The Skwezloc® shaft locking collar ensures near perfect concentricity.
SealMaster will exhibit PN Gold line which includes metric bore sizes for mounted ball bearings (20 to 60 mm) and “ER” cylindrical OD ball bearings (20 to 60 mm). Designed with brewery chemical and cleaning solutions in mind, they are equipped with patented multiple-lip seals and specialty coatings, and available with features like bolt-on end caps and backside shields that enable them to deliver industry-leading service life and performance. Solid base housings on SealMaster PN Gold bearings are machined from 316 stainless steel or high-strength composite with minimal gaps for fillings. Stainless steel bolt ferrules reinforce the bolt holes on composite bases for high load capacity and strength.
