The new Siegling Prolink series 8 is available as of immediate effect. Designed for enhanced transmission of force and durability, it is the right choice for a wide range of industrial applications. Series 8 can respond to any challenge, whether it is palettes, boxes, beverages, vehicles or any other heavy unit goods.
Product wastage due to critical transfer points? Series 8 is ideal for transferring heavy products reliably. Its robust design and excellent tooth engagement, combined with one-inch pitch (25.4 mm), ensure high levels of force transmission with small end radii and smooth tracking. It also makes compact conveyor designs possible.
Series 8 is available as a closed version with a smooth surface (flat top). In addition to polyacetal (POM) and polypropylene (PP), POM-CR can also be supplied – an impact-resistant, modified POM for very demanding conveying jobs. Obtainable on request are belts made of PXX-HC, a highly flame retardant and conductive material. As a standard, the sprockets are made of polyamide (PA6) - which lasts even longer than POM. The new series 8 is economical in every respect and mainly designed for industrial applications in the non-food sector.
