Conveyor system specialist FlexCAM is focusing on system reliability and longevity for its business supplying conveyors to the Australian food and beverage industries.

The company’s extensive range of FlexLink aluminium and stainless-steel material handling solutions use modular components permitting low risk engineering and flexible line configurations. Product solutions are based on 40 years of industry know-how and learning from thousands of installations worldwide. According to FlexCAM, its standardised components simplify assembly and installation, cut start-up time, and allow for quick and easy line modifications and replacement of damaged parts.

FlexLink products have been designed with no pinch points or sharp edges to ensure greater operator safety, the company says, and parts are stable and easy to clean and access, with good drainage, no pockets, and non-corrosive surfaces to meet strict hygiene requirements expected in the food and beverage industry.

All of these are valued features in industries where demand and production requirements are continuously changing and where downtime can be very costly, says Steve Alcorn, managing director of FlexCAM Australia and New Zealand.

“Our main focus is to help manufacturers develop their businesses successfully. Working closely with our customers, we provide innovative and proven automated solutions to enable them to produce goods smarter and safer at reduced operating expense,” he says.

FlexCAM has more than 20 years of experience providing engineered and turnkey solutions to the local food, dairy, beverage, pharma, personal care, and paper industries. After sales, the company offers ongoing support services to ensure optimum efficiency and lower total cost of ownership.

FlexCAM’s range of services include any combination of engineering design consultation, system documentation, delivery of components, assembly, installation, and ongoing and preventative maintenance options. The company also works collaboratively with customers to meet manufacturing and budget requirements.
