Hanover, March 2019 – Forbo Movement Systems offer enhanced-grip conveyor belts as ideal options for the food industry.
On steep inclines or when precise grip’s required, too little grip can cause disruptions in the process. Forbo Siegling’s HighGrip coatings prevent this happening. They provide gentle but consistent grip exactly when needed but let go again at the right moment too.
Thanks to their exceptional characteristics and excellent value, HighGrip belts are an alternative to rubber or silicone coatings. This is particularly the case when good grip, precise positioning, high levels of acceleration or sudden braking are concerned. The HighGrip coating enables firm product grip so inclined conveying of dry food, such as small baked goods and confectionery, is no problem. However, HighGrip’s benefits also extend to other sectors where reliable grip’s required, for instance, in slicers, X-ray detectors or on check-weighers. Conveyor and power transmission belts can be supplied with HighGrip coatings for a diverse range of special tasks. The belts are also FDA and EU compliant if unpackaged foodstuffs are conveyed. Forbo Movement Systems has long been responding to the ongoing trend of the food industry’s blue belts, which provide a strong contrast with the products conveyed and therefore make contamination and dirt easy to spot. The new E 4/2 U0/R2 HACCP-FF blue FDA (art. no. 906869) polyurethane type is another processing belt that actively supports customers’ HACCP concepts.
