Conveyor rollers are used as guide rollers in conveyor belts. The new material iglide® A250 was specifically developed for use in conveyor rollers for the food industry and is FDA and EU10/2011 compliant.
It is not only raw bakery products that present the machine manufacturer in the food sector with considerable challenges. Conveyor rollers solve a problem that you wouldn't expect from their name. If two conveyor belts are butt-jointed to each other, the radii of the guide rollers result in a gap between the two belts. This is not a major problem with boxes or panels. But, it is for soft raw croissants. These simply slide into the gap between the conveyor belts.
So that pasta, for example, can still be transferred safely from belt to belt, the deflection radii of the conveyor belts - and thus the gap between the belts - must be kept as small as possible.
With the new material iglide® A250, the existing product range for iglide® conveyor rollers is expanded by a material that is quickly detectable by sight through the blue coloring, which provides excellent wear results in the application conditions characteristic for conveyor rollers.
