Hanover, February 18, 2022 – Prolink series 18 stands apart for its comparatively low weight. Belts from this series are ideal for straight and curved conveying. Forbo Movement Systems presents two new variants. Due to their smart design, they tap into new applications where space is at a premium, or tight curve radii are required.
The new S18-44 HDK 2.2 (High Deck) and S18-44 GRT 1.7 have surfaces with a 44% open area, which enable excellent airflow and drainage (important for cooling, drying, and washing).
At the same time, the openings are so small (9 x 7.9 mm) that even very tiny products won’t slip through and are easy to convey. Series 18 is also predestined for curved conveyors, but ideal for straight ones too. It’s suitable for a very wide range of applications in the food industry. The new variants increase the options to include conveying and returning trays, baking trays and product bowls, or products that are very wide.
