Hanover, 8 March 2013. Forbo Siegling’s Prolink Beltfinder app allows mobile device users to find the right plastic modular belt from the Prolink range for their applications. The free app is smartphone- and tablet-friendly and only available on Forbo Siegling’s website at
The app’s main search screen allows users to look for required belt characteristics, accessories or sprocket sizes. Further selections restrict the number of belt types recommended and displayed. This factor makes searches easy and avoids long and confusing lists of results. For example if the Radius Top belt surface is selected, more searches only reveal materials and colours obtainable with the surface.
The right match for the conveyor
The app also lets users look for suitable belts based on the conveyor’s parameters. For example, when the length and width of the belt, conveying speed and capacity are entered, the Prolink Beltfinder displays the suggested belt types. Even if just a few search parameters are submitted, the app offers reliable belt recommendations quickly. After selecting a proposed belt type, the search query can be sent directly by e-mail to the appropriate contact at Forbo Siegling. The Prolink Beltfinder is always up to date because new belt types or accessories in the Prolink product range are immediately transferred to the app.
With its Prolink Beltfinder, Forbo Siegling is the first supplier of plastic modular belts to offer this type of app for smartphones and tablets. The Prolink Beltfinder is a Web application and can be downloaded at the www.prolink-finder.com URL or by entering the appropriate QR code. A link on the mobile device’s home screen lets users launch the app conveniently via an icon and use it at any time, provided they have Internet access. The Prolink Beltfinder also works on desktop computers.
