IBA 2023: Regal Rexnord helps food manufacturers to increase throughput and reduce downtime
Regal Rexnord will display several solutions to help food manufacturers achieve increased throughput and reduced downtime at IBA 2023, Halle C1, Booth #455. The show will take place at the Messe München Convention Center (Munich, Germany) from 22-26 October.
The booth at the engineering and manufacturer of electric motors and controls, power generation products and power transmission components maker will include an operational Spiral Cage System featuring the new Rexnord 6400 Series KleanTop Plastic Spiral Cage Belt. Visitors to the company’s booth can schedule a private meeting with the Regal Rexnord team during IBA by visiting this link.
Additional new products that will be at IBA from Regal Rexnord include the KleanTop PacTitan Pro Metal Belt, Sealmaster Mounted Ball Bearings, and Bauer Gear Motor HiflexDrive.
The new Rexnord 6400 Series KleanTop Plastic Spiral Cage Belt is for food manufacturers who want to increase productivity while reducing system costs and food safety risks. Regal Rexnord’s patented PowerKey technology delivers increased belt tension for maximum product throughput.
The 6400 Series provides increased belt rigidity, allowing carry rails to be spaced 20% further apart, reducing system structural costs. 6400 Series Belts feature an open design for easy cleaning and sanitation, as well as a 45% open area that allows for balanced airflow and product support in bakery and snack applications including proofing, cooling, freezing and buffering. The plastic construction of the 6400 Series requires no cutting, welding or grinding, making maintenance and repair fast and easy with no expensive tools necessary.
The KleanTop PacTitan Pro Metal Belt is a low-maintenance solution that can stand up to harsh applications such as oven infeed and discharge, transfers, and fryers as well as repeated rigorous cleaning processes. While traditional belts often require splicing, which can injure workers, the PacTitan Pro is one of the only metal belts that doesn’t require splicing through its innovative picket design engineered to assemble with a straight rod.
It features a proven extended service life up to six times longer than competing metal conveyor belts, and smooth belt edges that protect against worker injuries and product damage. The belt’s full hinge, reinforced design also reduces the likelihood of contamination due to metal breakage. Additionally, the PacTitan Pro provides a significant open area that allows for improved product airflow in heating and cooling applications. The belt picket thickness also keeps soft or doughy foods from contacting the conveyor support bed, improving product quality and throughput.
Sealmaster Mounted Ball Bearings have been the industry’s preferred bearing product, engineered for “Performance Without Compromise” for over 95 years. Sealmaster bearings are available in multiple high performance sealing options for both wet and dry applications, as well as a multitude of housing materials suited for a wide range of temperatures, including high heat.
Bauer Gear Motor will also be featuring its hygienic drive solution, HiflexDrive, for applications in the food industry such as raw material handling, processing and packing, and storage. The HiflexDrive helps guarantee general hygiene with a unique design that consists of no hidden dirt pockets in the motor, special paints that protect against aggressive environmental conditions and stainless steel versions with extremely high mechanical damage resilience. The Bauer Gear Motor HiflexDrive is energy efficient and has high protection ratings IP66, IP67 and IP69K.
