Hinge Plate Conveyor

Almost unlimited possibilities

With the SF8 steel hinge plate conveyor, we offer a particularly robust and modular conveyor system suitable for use in a wide variety of industrial environments.

With their hard-wearing steel hinge plate belts, they are ideally prepared for extremely difficult transport tasks and thus convey sharp-edged, heavily soiled, oily or hot goods without any problems. The plate conveyors themselves can be individually configured and our modular construction kit also offers almost all possibilities in terms of design.

The Basis

The chassis of the SF8 is made of a torsion-resistant, anodized aluminum profile frame, which forms the belt bridge and thus the basis of our hinge plate conveyors.

With up to six lateral profile grooves, the aluminum chassis offers a wide range of attachment options for supports, accessories and other equipment components. Thanks to our modular construction kit, various designs and equipment variants are available for hinge plate conveyors. This allows us to realize your new conveyor system in the shortest possible time.

The drive - Unstoppable!

With our efficient drive concepts, our conveyors master every application, no matter how heavy, fast or steep it may be.

The form-fit drive concept enables a slip-free chain drive with simultaneously laterally stable chain guidance. If required, the motors can be equipped with forced cooling fan, brake, thermal monitoring and additional frequency control. We design the drive according to the installation situation and the desired operating mode. Exactly as it should be. In addition to the drive types listed, there is a wide range of special solutions which we will be pleased to design and supply on request.


Hinge plate belt

Many possibilities - one goal

The particularly robust hinged-plate belt of the SF8 is the main feature of this conveyor system.

It can withstand the most adverse conditions and can be supplied as standard in flat, dimpled, slotted or perforated versions. It is also possible to attach carriers, side boards and even screw-on options for various product fixtures, depending on the application. Various FDA-approved designs are available for use in hygienic areas. There are countless options available for designing your new hinge plate conveyor, contact us, we will be happy to advise you.
