Hanover, January 8, 2019 – The new Prolink modular belt series 6.1 bucket profiles are now the number one choice for inclined conveying.
Series 6.1 plastic modular belts have been used successfully in hygiene-critical applications for years. A wide range of versions, such as smooth, open-area and structured (e.g. Nub Top or Cone Top, open or closed) make series 6.1 an all-around solution provider, particularly in the food industry.
To complement this product line, Forbo Movement Systems is now offering bucket profiles for inclined conveying. The new bucket profiles are ideal for conveying bulk goods and general inclined conveying and packaging applications. The profiles are suitable for a whole host of areas in the food industry such as snacks, meat and poultry, fruit, vegetables, dough processing or confectionery.
In contrast to curved profiles, the robust bucket profiles enclose the product securely, with no connection points, therefore preventing unwanted drainage and product loss. Easier cleaning is another advantage with the reduction of hinge points. The S6.1-0 FLT bucket profiles are available in a width of 200 mm and heights of 102 mm (4 in) and 152 mm (6 in) and in polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP) and polyoxymethylene (POM) in blue and white. Wider buckets (> 200 mm) can also be provided by combining them with standard scoop profiles. The scoop profile is positioned in the middle and the halved bucket profile is fitted at the side to accommodate needs for wider bucket profiles. Bucket profiles can also be installed side by side to ensure optimum distribution over the entire belt width.
