Staying agile in a restless, dynamic market has grown more crucial than ever for the equipment & machinery manufacturers, with changes in technology necessitating existing production lines to adopt speedy turnaround times. As the dependency of modern manufacturing on flexible production systems increases, the adoption of advanced conveyor systems and modular belt drives is gaining robust momentum abreast surging pressure in the material handling environment.

Modular Belt Drive Market – Notable Developments

Key players operating in the modular belt drive market include Dunlop Btl Ltd., Abb Automation Products GmbH, Bode Belting GmbH, Habasit AG (Habasit Group), Scan Belt A/S, Central Conveyor Limited, and Martin Sprocket & Gear, Inc. Companies in the modular belt drive market are focusing on the provision of solutions such as in-line accumulation and systems integration.

  • WorkSmart has recently introduced two modular belt drives, namely, the Friction Flow and the Flexi Flow, which can be mounted between the workstations and transport line track sections. These belt drive complement flexibility in in paced line and return track operations. A fractional horsepower of 90 v DC or 120v AC reduction gear motor supplies the motive power to these modular belt drives of WorkSmart.
  • Heat and Control introduced its new modular belt drive system SwitchBackTM that enables in-line accumulation of poultry, frozen meat, delicate snacks, and various other food products. This modular belt drive deprives the need for preventative maintenance, reduces product breakage, and saves floor space. This modular belt drive also prevents build-up of product coatings and seasonings and eliminates the mid-shift cleaning downtime.
