Omtec Adds Traction Coating to its PBT-1™ Transfer Worksurface Products

Maker of ergonomic conveyor accessories adds new layer of handling protection  

Materials handling systems manufacturer Omtec® Corporation recently expanded its line of ergonomic workstation and conveyor accessories to include LINE-X® coated worksurfaces. The Marlboro-based company added the protective surface option after a trial launch for select applications last year generated significant interest among distributors and their customers.

Providing a harder surface than standard workstation laminate or wood at a fraction of the cost of steel, LINE-X protective coatings provide reliable chemical, water, impact and wear resistance, while ensuring high-traction, slip-free materials handling. Spray applied to Omtec’s custom transfer systems and worksurfaces, attractive LINE-X textured coatings are durable, easy to clean and maintenance-free. Black and other colors are available.

Of the new coating options, Omtec’s President Shawn Masciarelli said, “Providing advanced and valuable technology to our customers is what Omtec’s success is built upon. That’s why we continually innovate and test new solutions in the field and then develop and deliver what works best for our markets.”
