Rexnord Announces New 1200 Series MatTop Conveyor Chain for the Food Industry


Milwaukee, WI (USA) As part of Rexnord’s growth in food industry applications, the company has launched the new Rexnord 1200 Series MatTop Chain. The sideflexing plastic modular conveyor chain is designed for moving a wide range of packaged and non-packaged food products in radius applications.

Food industry customers for the chain include, bakeries, packaged salad, fruit and vegetables suppliers; snack food manufacturers; and refrigerated and frozen food processors. The chain can be installed on new original equipment manufacturer (OEM) conveyor equipment or used to upgrade existing systems to carry heavier loads around corners at higher rates of speed.

The 1200 Series offers:

  • A tighter turn radius than other products on the market while reaching maximum speeds up to 246 ft/min (75 m/min), depending on the load of the chain; smooth product handling is achieved due to the large support surface
  • Four versions, providing solutions to all side-flexing needs
  • Two modules; the outer reinforced end module makes it possible to carry heavier packages and products around curves (up to 50 percent more product weight)
  • An inner radius module that makes it possible to construct conveyors in a more compact way, optimizing the manufacturing footprint by saving valuable floor space between equipment
  • Chain made from proven FDA-approved acetal and polypropylene for low friction and high strength
  • Three edge versions, including  flat (non tab), tab (hold down tab) and Positrack (bevel, which allows easy lift of the belt)
