Frequently Asked Question
What are the advantages of horizontal motion conveyors over vibratory conveyors?
Vibratory conveyors bounce product forward, creating small cracks that weaken chips and other fragile snacks. Those small cracks make product more susceptable to full fractures at transfer points within the system and all the way to the grocery shelf.
Horizontal motion conveyors such as Heat and Control's FastBack conveyors gently glide product safely along the pan to prevent cracking and breakage. As a result, you package the full quality of your fragile products such as snack foods.

FastBacks reduce breakage by 50% compared to vibratory converyors.
