June 9, 2014 – The new Omni-Flex 3 x 1 belt
with its three-by-one-inch opening is ideal for conveying pans, trays and
larger products in spiral cooling, freezing and general conveyance
applications.

This design has effectively reduced the
overall weight of the belt by 35 per cent without making any additional changes
to the proven Omni-Flex belt design. The reduction in belt weight makes this a
more economical alternative for conveying products in pans, trays, and other
bulk containers in applications where Omni-Flex belts or similar style flex
belts with smaller openings have been traditionally used. The belt is available
in widths up to 48 inches, with even wider widths available after a system
review. The belt is the ideal belt for applications where belt weight has
limited one’s ability to increase product loading.

Since Ashworth retained the original design
of the belt, no sprocket changes or transfer modifications are required when
replacing an existing Omni-Flex belt with the new 3 x 1 belt. In hard to clean
applications, the increased opening makes this belt easier to clean; thus
reducing sanitation cost. Similar flex style belts often require a change in
sprockets and transfer modifications that can lead to increased retrofit cost.

The development of the Omni-Flex 3 x 1 belt
was prompted by customer requests for a lighter, less costly belt to cool,
proof and freeze panned, trayed or larger products directly on the belt.
Ashworth’s Omni-Flex line of stainless steel belts has been a mainstay in the
baking industry since it was first introduced in 1959.
