As standard, Eye-Flex® belting is supplied with reinforcing plates at the edge, with drive being provided by specially formed sprockets that engage with the underside of the belt. For enhanced tracking and reliability, Eye-Flex® can also be supplied with side chains as an alternative drive method.
Eye-Flex® has a standard construction based on a straight modular form with wire links stacked next to one another. Eye-Flex® without spacers is simple to construct and easily repaired with minimal cost.
Eye-Flex® belting with underside welded wires provides the largest range of available gap widths, up to 50mm. Underwelded wire spacing should be considered on applications where hygiene is critical as this conﬁguration makes cleaning and sanitation easy and more efficient.
Eye-Flex® belting with ring spacers provides an alternative method of increasing the gap width. The gap is set by one or more rings placed between adjacent links on the cross rod. The gap width is determined by the number and thickness of rings used.
Eye-Flex® belting with spring spacers provide a more dimensionally stable belt in heating or freezing applications. The link gap is maintained because the wires are able to move on the cross rod. Springs also expose a large proportion of the connecting rod for improved cleaning and sanitizing.
Flights are available on Eye-Flex® belts to aid in product alignment, separation, or loading. Flights can also form a barrier across the belt width, that can aid transport of product up inclines. Other styles of flights can hold product in ﬁxed positions. Flights can be bolted, welded in place, or formed directly into the wire.
Eye-Flex® belts can be equipped with side guards to prevent product from falling off the side of the belt. Height and shape of the side guards can be customized for your product or application. These side guards can also be inserted at various points across the belt width providing a positive separation between rows of product.
