Intralox now offers exceptional tight-transfer modular plastic belting solutions for the canmaking industry. Eliminating the need for dead plate transfers, these tight-transfer solutions for mass can conveyance have been shown in field testing to reduce spoilage of empty cans by 70% compared to transfers with dead plates. This dead-plate-free belting system also prevents cans from becoming stranded on dead plates, reducing the risk of palletizing mixed labels and eliminating labor needed to clear the line of stranded cans at each label change.
