Cambridge, Maryland October 31, 2014

Cambridge Engineered Solutions, the world's largest manufacturer of metal conveyor belts for food processing, will showcase five of its newest products at Pack Expo. The Cambridge belts offer food and beverage manufacturers innovative solutions for improving speed, efficiency and hygiene in their canning, bottling and packaging processes.

Cambridge has engineered the most comprehensive line of metal belting for food packagers in the industry. Belts operating, on display and available for sample at the Cambridge Pack Expo booth (Lakeside Lower Hall, E-10635) are:

DuraFlex Edge: Best suited for the tight transfer and packaging of small products into sleeves such as cookies, crackers and snacks. Keeps products perfectly aligned, promotes stability and prevents side-to-side movement on the line.

PacTitan: Cambridge's strongest and longest lasting belt is the top choice for processors who are canning food products. It's capable of transporting varying size cans with heavy loads on the line and can be customized with openings that support cans of varying diameters. Customization of belt weave also promotes better drainage for can-washing processes.

DiaCrimp: Features a tighter belt weave that can be flattened to ensure product stability. Accommodates small bottles and vials to prevent tipping and breakage and leaves no markings on the bottom of the glass.

Leading Edge DuraLite: The strongest and most open belt for carrying boxed or pouched product, such as ice cream, through spiral cage systems and turn conveyor units.

Precision: Cambridge's premier belt for packing products, such as bottled water, under shrink-wrap tunnels

"What sets Cambridge apart from other belt manufacturers is our engineering capabilities and wiliness to work with customers to develop customized belt solutions that solve their packaging and production issues and provide an efficiency edge," says Mike Price, domestic sales manager.

Price says Cambridge will offer free sprockets for select belts for any orders placed with the company at Pack Expo.

Headquartered on Maryland's Eastern Shore, Cambridge designs and fabricates metal conveyor belts for companies around the world in food processing and agriculture (baking, beverage, meat, poultry and snack foods).
