Shuttleworth introduces a high-speed wrapper infeed called Servo Smartfeed. This system enables customers to better handle their products in the wrapping and cartoning processes by feeding the products into the flow wrappers and cartoning machines faster and more accurately. Since 1962, Shuttleworth has been a leading international engineering, consulting, and manufacturing supplier of conveyors and devices, with more than 15,000 installations worldwide.
An improved tool for on-site manual installation of Clipper Wire Hook Lacing in light-duty conveyor belts is being introduced by Flexco. While retaining the earlier tool’s familiar name, the new Clipper Microlacer deeply embeds the belt splice quicker and with less wear on the tool. The lacer head has been completely redesigned for added durability and strength, which enables the Microlacer to embed lacing hooks deeper and tighter into the belt. This lower-profile splice provides greater holding strength, longer service life, and less wear on splice-contacting conveyor components. Lacer guide blocks have been widened to full lacer head width, providing maximum bearing surface for greater wear resistance and minimal maintenance. The new Lacer design also introduces an offset drive handle for greater leverage at one end so more of the splice installation passes can be done conveniently with one hand.
