A food processor was having problems with their modular plastic conveyor belt. Product on the belt was tipping over and causing the conveyor to jam. This problem resulted in two minutes of downtime each of the 15 hours a day that the conveyor was running. The Applied® Account Manager suggested a Rexnord chain solution which stopped the product from tipping. This change resulted in 30 minutes of extra production per day and a savings of $72,000 per year.
