Flex-Turn® Conveyor Advantages:

  • FLEX-TURN_CONVEYOR_TAB_PIC_1-(1).jpgGentle handling minimizes product damage
  • Maintains product orientation and spacing around turns
  • Unique non-collapsing tapered-pitch belt
  • Easy to use, clean, and maintain


The Flex-Turn® range offers choices of size, belt width and configuration, providing a turn conveyor to suit almost every situation. Turns through 90° or 180° are standard, though other angles from 45° to 180° are available.

Three Series offer different constructions of the belt support:

  • The Series 300 Flex-Turn® conveyor is an open, stainless steel framed turn conveyor. This open structure allows for the easy removal of debris, and facilitates washing and draining.
  • The Series 400 Flex-Turn® conveyor has a solid polyethylene top. This prevents the product from falling through, or becoming entangled with, the strands of the belt.
  • The Series 500 Flex-Turn® conveyor has a solid stainless steel top, with stainless steel running rails. This option is particularly suited in some meat processing situations.

With a total of thirteen different sizes of belt, and a range of angles between 45° to 180°, there is a Flex-Turn® conveyor for almost every application. Our standard drive motors and controllers are supplied with IP66 enclosure protection and OS2 surface protection to ensure suitability for intensive wash down processes. If required, customer specified drive systems can be fitted to suit each individual application.
