Modular belts Prolink Series 8
Forbo has developed an innovative range of modular belts, where the rollers rotate at an angle of 90° to the conveying direction. This guarantees products to slide onto and off the belt sideways with little friction. The particularly innovative system (patent pending), has the rollers fitted in replaceable sliders. This allows very high flexibility. The number of rollers can be varied and fully adapted according to specific customer requirements. The exceptionally robust components of this belt are made of very hard-wearing POM (acetal), which makes them particular durable. Thanks to the series 8’s small pitch (1 inch), very small drum diameters and low heights are possible, which also lowers costs
Heat resistant and silicone-free conveyor belts
Forbo Movement Systems has developed a conveyor belt especially for applications where very hot temperatures prevail. It can cope with these challenging demands and doesn’t require any silicone.
The new belt, PVK150MF BXB-NA BLACK FR from the Siegling Transtex range is very robust and puncture-resistant. In the tyre industry in particular it can be used as a take-off belt behind rubber mixers (e.g. Banbury® mixers).
In the tyre industry and in industrial rubber production silicone is often not permitted. Therefore, the demand for silicone-free belts is obvious. The new Siegling Transtex belt is the perfect solution for high-temperature applications where silicone can’t be used.
Forbo Movement Systems employs more than 2,000 people globally in nine production sites and 25 international companies. The company was founded in 1919 in Hanover. Since 1994 the company has belonged to the Swiss Forbo Group. The products have been marketed since 2007 under the master brand “Forbo Movement Systems”.
