Hanover, 01 August 2011 – High-efficiency belts enhance product quality and extend machinery’s service life
Forbo Movement Systems is showcasing its latest product developments at ITMA in Barcelona, Spain. Its new printing blankets ensure top printing quality and enhanced web-laying belts optimise the way the product lies. New power transmission belts set standards, offering energy-efficiency and longer product lives. The Hanover belting specialist will be presenting its company and latest product innovations from 22 to 29 September in hall 2, stand C 235.
Printing blankets with consistent pitch line for maximum printing accuracy
Printing quality is paramount. Which is why Forbo Siegling has developed two new printing blankets that set standards in rotary, flat-bed and digital printing. They have polyester tension members and produce even more accurate printing results. The Print 6646-2.15E is single-ply and has a low-noise underside. This characteristic is particularly important for high speed operation during flat-bed printing. Because of the typical start-stop process during flat-bed printing, belts without enhanced undersides frequently cause irritating noise. With its special fabric design and low surface weight, the belt is also kind to key elements of the machine, such as the magnetic bar cover. It also ensures longer service lives and cuts energy and maintenance costs as a result. The two-ply PRINT 6736-2.65E was developed for rotary printers based on this innovative high-tech fabric design. In this case, advantages such as reliable, low-noise belt tracking also really bear fruit. PRINT 6736-2.65E combines robustness with extreme repeat accuracy. The belt’s thickness and pitch line precision mean that it is easy to retrofit on existing rotary printers.
