Cambridge to Debut DuraHinge Safety Edge at Atlanta Show
Cambridge Engineered Solutions will introduce the DuraHinge Safety Edge, a new state-of- the-art, flex-style metal conveyor belt at the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta, Georgia, January 26-28. The Cambridge, Maryland, USA-based company will showcase the belt on a working conveyor at Booth B7611.
Fabricated with reinforced edge technology to prevent snagging, DuraHinge Safety Edge improves employee safety and food handling sanitation in processing environments, particularly those in the meat and poultry industries.
The belt has a fully secured edge that allows for tight transfers in the plant. Each end loop sweeps back around to the adjacent end loop to prevent catching while maintaining enough openness for easy splicing. Outside loop dimensions match industry standards allowing it to be a universal fit for all conveyors.
“Our goal with Safety Edge is to offer a better-quality conveyor belt that removes concerns about foreign matter being transferred to food products during processing – ultimately, reaching consumers – while simultaneously creating a safer belt for employees working on the line,” said Barry Voshell, director of market business development. “This belt is far easier to clean and sanitize in a production setting than plastic belting, and offers a higher return on investment for plants utilizing commodity metal belts.”
Also at IPPE, Cambridge will host “Metal Matters,” a series of programs to increase awareness of safety and sanitation issues in food processing resulting from new FSIS/USDA antimicrobial guidelines. Representatives from the USDA, insurance companies and OEMs will demonstrate and discuss metal belt advantages in food and worker safety, total cost of ownership and risk prevention.
