Denipro raises the Easychain® conveyor’s profile in the food sector

19 November 2015

Introduced for the first time just three years ago, a classic application for the conveyor is the transport section between first and second packaging.

Denipro AG is a specialist in rolling conveyor technology, launching innovative products, all based on the principle of “rolling instead of sliding”. 

The logistics system has taken next to no time to prove itself in the food industry, and comes with one main advantage: each installation is largely maintenance-free, because load distribution and chain tension are self-regulating. What’s more, the technology is very energy-efficient. Yet despite the resultant, outstanding environmental footprint, the system turns out to be fast, it moves at a maximum speed of 90 metres per minute.

“If you’re in the food industry and you’re looking for a completely flexible and robust logistics system, then take a closer look at easychain,” says Denipro Sales Director Jens Kirchhoff. For example, at Italian food manufacturer Gennari, an easychain conveyor is linking the five production lines to the palletizing stations. On their 220-metre journey, the 800-gram to 10-kilogram packages containing Parmesan cheese or Parma ham also negotiate height differences of almost three metres via a spiral that’s part of the easychain system. At the end of the section, each item is weighed and ejected according to its destination. Every hour, the installation transports up to 1,500 food containers.

Like all conveyor technology systems from Denipro, easychain is also fully modular. Which means: each installation can be assembled comparatively quickly, and conveniently modified or extended. At the same time, easychain can be integrated into all existing buildings, however complex and awkward, and also used in wet zones. The black and yellow plates – the visual hallmark of the Denipro conveyor ? are available in widths of 120, 180 and 240 millimetres. Alternatively, users who require more than the maximum payload of 20 kilograms per item conveyed by easychain can opt for the sister system, deniway, which transports items up to 50 kilograms.
