INTRALOX PARTNERSHIP DELIVERS STRONG SOLUTIONS THROUGH INNOVATION & EXPERIENCE
SideDrive Conveyor Co. is the authority on sanitary conveying equipment. Thanks to a strong partnership with Intralox, we are proud to be the first and only company in the world with an exclusive focus on side drive, edge-driven conveyors.
Originally founded by a former Intralox employee, our parent company NCC has worked with Intralox for more than 35 years. In line with this legacy, SideDrive Conveyor Co. is one of a select few companies to have a Preferred Supplier Agreement with them. This, in addition to several licenses to build specific equipment, allows us to design completely flexible, sanitary conveyors with modular plastic belting from Intralox.
Our Intralox partnership is strengthened through our shared values—a commitment to innovation and exceptional service.
CHANNELING INNOVATION WITH SIDE DRIVE CONVEYOR BELTS
Like SideDrive, Intralox was founded on the principle of solving a problem. For more than 40 years, the company has continued to evolve from its first innovation in 1971 when founder and inventor JM Lapeyre developed a modular plastic belt to replace the metal belting used in transporting shrimp.
Since then, Intralox has extended its conveyor solutions past its flagship modular plastic belting to help improve operations and production lines globally. Today, they have more than 1600 patents in force around the world, demonstrating their continued commitment to innovation.
SideDrive Conveyor Co. not only builds sanitary conveyors but does so using Intralox’s modular side drive conveyor belting that is designed to be driven by its side, eliminating the restrictions of traditional conveyors.
With a SideDrive conveyor integrated with Intralox products, you’re able to:
- clean easily and efficiently
- prevent possible metal or lubrication contamination
- eliminate the need for welding or grinding when replacing belts
- and so much more!
A COMMITMENT TO CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT AND SERVICE STRENGTHENS OUR INTRALOX PARTNERSHIP
SideDrive Conveyor Co. was established to solve customer problems with innovative conveyor solutions—and to do it right. With an exclusive focus on integrating Intralox’s unique plastic modular belting with side drive, edge-driven technology, SideDrive can build and integrate virtually any product transport set-up.
By integrating the Intralox 2700 Series side drive conveyor belt, SideDrive’s flexible food-safe conveyor solutions are limitless. You can move virtually any product—raw, packaged, and non-food items—in any configuration with drumless or cageless spirals and long-running, transferless conveyors.
The 2700 Series belt was initially developed in 2005 specifically for spiral solutions to replace metal belts driven by center drums. The industry was calling for a sanitary, plastic modular belt solution that could be used for specific applications where a metal belt is not desirable or required, as well as to improve upon other existing edge-driven solutions. At the time, the existing edge-driven solutions were primarily metal (or hybrid metal-plastic) and had technical issues in addition to the ever-present need for a cleaner solution to drum-based systems. As a proven and successful resolution to these problems, it didn’t take long for the 2700 Series belt to become a popular alternative. In fact, there are now over 100 installations of Intralox 2700 Series belts in spirals worldwide! At the end of the day, the market wanted a more sanitary belt solution for spirals and Intralox delivered.
To ensure each side drive conveyor design is built to meet the needs of food processing, consumer packaged goods, and OEM machine builders, SideDrive Conveyor Co. utilizes NCC’s proven food experience as a full-service automation systems integrator.
