Heavy-duty modular plastic belt reliably handles fragile or unstable loads

LAS VEGAS, Sept. 27, 2017—Honeywell Intelligrated showcases its Palmat pallet conveyor at PACK EXPO 2017. Palmat features heavy-duty plastic belting with a patented automatic belt take-up system to offer an alternative to rollers and chains for safe and reliable transportation of column-stacked or unitized loads on slip sheets, along with molded or specialty pallets.

Ideal for applications with fragile or unstable loads, the self-tracking, fully-supported belt is an especially effective solution for handling empty containers in preparation for fill lines in food and beverage operations. Available with smooth or non-skid belting in single, full-width or multiple strands, Palmat can support operations serving multiple international markets with different load configurations and pallet types.

Palmat is part of the full line of standard and custom pallet conveyor systems from Honeywell Intelligrated. Offerings include chain and driven roller conveyor for both accumulation and transportation applications, turns and transfers, and auxiliary products to enable peak operational performance and efficiency.
