Omni-Flex®

RELIABLE TURN AND SPIRAL PERFORMANCE

Originally developed from straight-running flat wire conveyor belts, Omni-Flex belts are spiral and turn curve metal belts that have been delivering consistent, dependable performance since 1959. Constructed with slotted pickets, Omni-Flex belts make right and left hand turns, as well as run straight.

STAINLESS STEEL, HEAVY DUTY CONSTRUCTION

All Omni-Flex components are precision crafted from premium quality stainless steel to exacting standards. The finish is smooth and burr free for easy clean-up and excellent sanitary and hygienic properties. Omni-Flex is constructed with heavy duty, precision formed rod ends for extended cage life and hot upset for maximum strength, reduced cage wear and abrasion. Two rows of reinforcing bar links are standard, providing the belt with ample strength.

BROAD RANGE OF SIZES AND ACCESSORIES
The flat wire mesh of Omni-Flex belts is available in four popular dimensions; 1/2" x 1", 1" x 1", 1/3" x 1", 3" x 1". Fatigue resistant pickets are available on most Omni-Flex belts and increase belt service life by approximately 30%. Other accessories such as guard edge plates, lane dividers and custom attachments are available for special needs.

Omni-Flex E1 & E2

Available Options:
  • Guard Edges

    Plates assembled onto belt edges to prevent product from falling off. Guard edges serve to replace bar links on a one-to-one basis. Available heights (above the conveying surface) are: 0.50" (12.7 mm), 0.75" (19.1 mm), 1" (25.4 mm), 1.5" (38.1 mm), and 2" (50.8 mm).

  • Lane Dividers

    Detachable or non-detachable plates assembled into the belt’s surface to locate product. Available heights (above the conveying surface) are: 0.50" (12.7 mm), 0.75" (19.1 mm), 1" (25.4 mm), 1.5" (38.1 mm), and 2" (50.8 mm). The maximum number of lane dividers = Belt Width / 9" (228.6 mm).

  • Fatigue Resistant Pickets (Patented)

    These special pickets, which are manufactured with an outward facing radius centered on the trailing face of the picket, are designed to extend the service life of the belt by approximately 30%. This radius serves to lengthen the belt pitch in selected openings near the outside edge of the belt. This causes the bar links to bear the full load of the belt in a turn, relieving stress on the picket, which increases the belt’s service life.

"Equipment reliability on our bake line is our #1 focus. The previous Ashworth Omni-Flex® belt lasted more than 10 years without issue. With that kind of dependability, it made sense to stick with a proven product, so when it was time to replace, we chose Ashworth Omni-Flex® again. The longevity of Ashworth’s belt is a testament to the quality of Ashworth’s products. We also value the ongoing local engineering support provided by Ashworth’s Technical Account Manager. The support provided helps us to identify potential performance issues before they could result in damage to our belts and conveyors. Ashworth’s proactive approach helps to minimize our maintenance costs and reduces the chance of downtime due to catastrophic belt or conveyor system failures."

“We use a variety of Ashworth conveyor belts in transfer, oven, and spiral freezer applications. Ashworth’s Omniflex® belt has been operating in our two spiral freezers awlessly for the past seven years. These belts are easy to clean and require very little attention outside of routine maintenance. Over the past seven years we have placed a great deal of trust in the performance of Ashworth’s conveyor belts and we have not been let down once. ”
