Eriez: Horizontal motion conveyor
With the Eriez® E-Z Slide® Horizontal Motion Conveyor (HMC), damage to friable or delicate products caused by the hopping and tumbling action common to typical conveyors and feeders is a thing of the past.
The E-Z Slide’s positive sliding motion carries fragile products down the conveyor safely and smoothly.
Food products are shuffled along without breakage and coated parts are transported without damage to coatings. In foundry and metalworking applications, noise is greatly reduced due to parts gently sliding along the tray bottom. Drop gates can be provided along the length to carefully drop materials onto other conveyors or cross feeders.
The self-cleaning, gentle and low maintenance Eriez E-Z Slide HMC is offered in a wide range of widths and lengths to suit specific product requirements. It can be floor mounted on pedestals or suspended overhead. The single-drive unit may be located at either end or under the tray to fit any plant installation, even where space is limited.
Controls are available to allow variable speed adjustment. A variety of sanitary stainless-steel trays are standard, with many optional coatings and surface finishes offered. Trays may be equipped with single or multiple gates for bottom discharge.
