and access windows for access to the inside of the frame and
belt lifters to aid in the sanitation process.
Do you see the implementation of the Food Safety
Modernization Act (FSMA) impacting food manufacturers’
Absolutely. The FSMA places greater emphasis on sanitary
issues for food manufacturers. As such, companies need to
respond and ensure their equipment is up to par. That’s why
we are seeing a greater push from our customers for conveyor
systems that can quickly be disassembled, cleaned and returned
to service in a matter of minutes. The more sanitary in design a
conveyor system is, the more functional it will be for customers.
What trends are you seeing in conveying for the food industry? Q:
Some of the trends we’re seeing in conveying for the food
industry include equipment that’s fully sanitary in design.
Food manufacturers know what the ramifications are if a
product they make is recalled due to a bacterial outbreak.
That’s why they are seeking conveyor systems that provide a
high level of sanitary protection. ◆
