FlexLink Flexible Conveying Solutions for the Food and Packaging Industry

By acting proactively and keeping you informed about technical development, we make you aware of possible improvements in time. Reliability and confidence as well as local presence and service are key factors in all our customer relationships.
We provide complete flow management solutions from core to palletized paper converting products reaching flexible, efficient and safe systems adapted to your current and future needs.
Our patented Dynamic Flow Concept (DFC) is based on diverting or merging a constant flow of products without any backlog. The FlexLink control logic assures optimal line balancing by making every and each product available in any requested configuration.
Our extensive range of equipment includes all aspects of cigarette, filter and cigar handling for the secondary area. Flow management at all stages of the production from mass-flow, packet, carton and finial shipping cases through to palletizing can be integrated with new and/or existing production equipment.
Machinery can be laid out to fulfil customer requirements, maximize space utilization and product quality.
The FlexLink conveyor is based on an aluminium conveyor beam with low friction slide rails guiding a plastic multi-flexing chain. Products to be conveyed travel directly on the conveyor, or on pallets/carries. Products that are handled have a weight from a few grams up to 20kg with as well a huge variety of shapes.
