BMG’s stand at this year’s Propak Africa exhibition showcased a wide range of products, suitable for bottling, food processing and packaging sectors. On display were Rexnord slat-top chain, Uni Modular belting, Ammeraal flat food processing synthetic belts and Rapplon flat processing transmission belts.
“Highlights of this year’s event for BMG’s Light Materials Handling division, included meeting many potential new customers, networking with other exhibitors and OEMs and receiving positive feedback from existing customers about BMG’s high-quality product range and the company’s dependable technical support service,” says Ryan Forsyth, Business Unit Manager, Light Materials Handling division, BMG. “All products for food handling and packaging applications are carefully selected by BMG specialists, to meet the highest conveying and packaging standards, in terms of reliability, flexibility and consistent quality and hygiene controls.
“There are many applications in the food processing sector, where standard process belts or conveyor belts cannot be used. It is critical in modern food processing plants, that only high-quality homogeneous and specific-coated materials – suitable for direct contact with foodstuffs, as well as for packed food conveying – are used, to ensure hygienic and safe processing, coupled with efficient logistics. BMG’s food grade belts, which comply with stringent EC and FDA requirements for pristine hygiene standards in the food and packaging sectors, include rubber, polyurethane, silicone and PTFE coated-process conveyor and folder gluer belts.
“BMG’s focus at the exhibition for the packaging sector was on Uni modular belting, Ziplink belting, Uni modular QNB-Ball and FDA-approved folder gluer belts. “Decision-makers from the bottling sector showed interest in iCOF condition monitoring equipment, dry running chain and KleenEdge belting. Pop-Up Uni modular products attracted players from the food industry to the BMG stand.”
BMG enhances its extensive range of light materials handling components with a technical advisory and support service throughout Southern Africa. The company also offers a customised service, where belt products are supplied to exact size requirements, in the appropriate material, for each specific application.
Workshops and stock depots are equipped with the latest tooling and equipment and manned by skilled belting technicians, to ensure continuity of technical and support services.
