Success Stories

  • Ice Cream Machine
  • Sausage Processing Machinery
  • Ice cream machines for gelato, ice, sorbet and yoghurt are self-contained machines refrigerated by cooling systems. These machines produce ice cream for consumption on streets or in cafés, restaurants and small food shops. They typically operate in small spaces in view of the customers. They must deliver a long reliable life while being compact and clean with operation at low sound levels.

    The Megadyne OEM team was contacted by a manufacturer experiencing problems with their drive system. The high-speed drive suffered from excessive noise, vibration and contamination. Although the drive was enclosed inside a cover, black belt dust contamination was still an issue the customer wanted to resolve and eliminate from the system.

  • The Food Industry is a dynamic and fast-paced business. Belts and associated equipment for food processing are required to have food contact-approved materials for use with any kind of food product or process. They must also be highly resistant to animal fats, vegetable and mineral oils, as well as many chemicals and be capable of handling clean-in-place wash-down procedures.

    Modern production lines for sausage processing move at extremely high speeds and acceleration. A belt must possess properties such as high flexibility and good grip to endure this demanding environment. Additionally, materials must meet all the food-grade requirements of the area where it is used. 

    The Megadyne OEM team worked with a manufacturer of sausage processing machinery to solve their problem of short belt life. The application suffered frequent belt breakage and delamination due to the severe environment where the belt was exposed to material degrading animal fats and high-pressure periodic wash-down maintenance of the equipment.
