Pioneering the Industry
Ashworth has been a major innovator in conveyor belting and conveyor systems for decades. Examples include:

Hybrid Belting: Ashworth pioneered hybrid conveyor belting, introducing belts that combine a backbone of steel for high strength with a plastic product surface for its functional advantages. Most recently, Ashworth introduced The AdvantageTM line of hybrid belting, that provides end-users with an extremely hygienic, easy to clean, open conveying surface combined with a no-weld, patented rod-locking system that makes repairs a snap. In its first year in the market, The Advantage has proven itself as the market leader in spiral freezing, cooling and proofing.

True-Tracking Friction Driven Belts: Ashworth developed the true-tracking CB5 Baking Band® that became, and still is, a standard in the baking industry, as well as Cleatrac®, a positive-drive woven-wire belting system that eliminated the need for pin rolls.

Lotension Spiral System and Spiral Belts: Ashworth invented the Lotension Spiral Conveyor System and the related turn curve conveyor belts that became a worldwide standard in food processing equipment for cooking, freezing, proofing and cooling applications.

A Step Ahead
At Ashworth, this innovative spirit enables us to stay a step ahead of our competitors by providing the widest range of conveyor belting products; all-metal, all-plastic or a hybrid of the two. Whatever works best for you, we have it!
