Impact Saddle or Slider Bed
Flexal is an elastic device for products loading on belt conveyors. It consists of cross belt elastic straps which, through their flexibility and their elongation ability, absorb impact energy and weight of loaded products.
The straps, more or less numerous, are supported by a metal framework, adjustable in all 3 dimensions in order to fit the system to every trough angle, from 20 to 70°. Each strap is fitted with sliding pads made of very high molecular weight HDPE. They are replaceable and their number is flexible, depending on the application.
Pad’s fixing to the strap is designed such that its elongation is not hindered. The belt is in contact with a large number of pads which automatically distribute strains and frictions due to elastic supporting.
- Very little wear and therefore long lifetime for pads
- Negligible energy absorption
Extremely simple in design, FLEXAL requires no special maintenance. Working visibility and visual inspection of the condition are always possible. In most cases, pads have a very long lifetime, and their replacement requires no special skill nor special tools.
