PUNCHED PLATES BEVERAGE INDUSTRY

Punched plates beverage industry: these can be manufactured with different kinds of perforations, of which the main ones are round, square, rectangular, oblong, tapered and bridged. Standard size is 2000x1000 mm, however the machines used enable perforation of plates up to 6000x2000 mm. Thickness of

the plates varies from 0,3 mm to 20 mm for plates in carbon steel and up to 15 mm for stainless steel plates. It is possible to obtain plates with perforated areas in special geometric shapes, for example trapezoidal or circular crowns. After perforating, the plates are straightened and may undergo degreasing treatment to eliminate residues of the lubricant used during the punching process. Plates with different levels of surface finishing can also be supplied, attainable through butter-finishing, sandblasting and electrolytic polishing. They can be produced in different materials, such as for example, carbon steel, stainless steels, Nickel-Chromium alloys, pure metals.
Drilled plates
Can be produced with three different kinds of perforations: cylindrical, step drilled and conical. The diameter of the perforations can vary from 1 to 6 mm. The maximum dimensions of the drilled plates are 6000x2000 mm, with a maximum thickness of 15 mm. After drilling, the plates are butter-finished and washed to guarantee perfectly clean perforations. They may undergo further surface finishing treatments, such as for example, sandblasting and electrolytic polishing. Different finishes or special coatings may be carried out following specific request by the client. The drilled plates can be produced in different materials such as: carbon steel, stainless steels, Titanium, Nickel-Chromium alloys, Copper and its alloys.
Milled plates
It is possible to produce plates with different milling profiles, in compliance with the client’s specific requests, by using the appropriate tools. The maximum sizes and thicknesses of milled plates depend on the type of milling required. After milling, the plates are butter-finished and washed to guarantee perfectly clean milled areas. They may undergo further surface finishing treatments, mainly sandblasting or electrolytic polishing. Different finishes or special coatings may be carried out following specific request by the client. The milled plates can be produced in different materials such as: carbon steel, stainless steels, Aluminium Alloys, Copper and its alloys.
The VICO-TR belt is made of flat bars and is sprocket driven. It is characterized by a large free area, ease of cleaning and flexibility in use from –150°C to 550°C. It also guarantees considerable reliability when working because it remains perfectly centred thanks to its sprocket wheel drive. VICO-TR belts are classified according to the pitch of the flat bar bends and of the rods, the diameter of the rods and the size of the flat bars. VICO-TR belts can be supplied with button head welded connecting rods or rods with clinched edges. VICO-TR belts are mainly made of carbon steel, galvanized steel and stainless steels. For the driving of the VICO-TR belts standard cast iron or carbon steel sprockets are normally used, and are normally available in stock. On request, the sprockets can be made of AISI 304, AISI 316, Nylon, UHMW 1000, etc. The sprockets are supplied with an unmachined axial bore and with the hub sized according to the diameter of the shaft used.
The VICO-REL® belt consists of elements formed by wire links, locked together by electro-welding one or more cross wires, connected by means of connecting rods. It is usually sprocket or wheel driven. Special chains can also be mounted to suit particular applications or specifications. The link pitch may vary according to the size of the product being transported. VICO-REL® is classified according to the pitch of the links and the rods, their diameter and the type of selvage. Welded selvages are normally used for VICO-REL® belts. They can also be supplied with driving chains and guard edges. VICO-REL® belts are mainly made of carbon steel, galvanized steel and stainless steels.
The VICO-TU belt consists of closely wound alternating right and left-hand wire spirals connected together by straight connecting rods. This is classified according to the pitch and internal spacing of the spiral wire, the diameter of the wire and rod and the type of selvage. VICO-TU can have welded or ladder selvages. It can also be supplied with driving chains and guard edges and rods with special surface finishes. VICO-TU belts are mainly made of carbon steel, galvanized steel and stainless steels.
The VICO-MB is a ‘balanced’ belt and consists of alternating right and left-hand wire spirals, connected together by pre-crimped connecting rods. This is classified according to the pitch and internal spacing of the spiral wire, the diameter of the wire and rod and the type of selvage. VICO-MB can have welded or ladder selvages or ladder welded selvages. It can also be supplied with driving chains and guard edges and reinforced selvages. VICO-MB belts are mainly made of carbon steel, galvanized steel and stainless steels.
VICO-Flex belts have chains on edges made of specially shaped links having slot holes for nesting the connecting rods. Such construction allows a remarkable flexibility of the belt in every direction. VICO-Flex belts are usually made with mesh overlay. In some cases, when the product size permits, they may also be produced without mesh overlay. They may be supplied complete with integral guard edges and, if necessary, Nylon or stainless steel sprockets. Degreasing, pickling and passivation can be carried out on request. VICO-Flex belts are normally requested in AISI 304, but they can also be made using other materials.
