Hanover, Germany, March 29, 2023 – When it comes to sharp and heavy products, lots of conveyor belts quickly fail. In the worst-case scenario, damage to the belt surface will eventually cause belts to malfunction and the conveyor to come to a standstill. Forbo Movement Systems is now launching an especially robust and durable alternative for such tough challenges as those.
The new, outstandingly hard-wearing Transtex PVC200 FxB-NA green FR conveyor belt (art. no. 908938) with three fabric layers was developed for a diverse range of industrial production applications. Key applications are metal cutting systems, punch presses, take-off belts, and (metal) recycling systems. What’s more, the PVC200 FxB-NA green can also be used for general, heavy-duty conveying and medium-heavy to heavy unit goods. The versatile conveyor belt comes with a transversely soft multi-layer fabric (a 3-ply interwoven type). Transversely soft means the belt is also suitable for troughed conveyors that are used for moving bulk materials. The new Transtex has a PVC coating and a brushed surface. Its superior design makes the belt exceptionally able to withstand incisions and tears. Due to its good tear resistance, it’s also ideal for use with mechanical fasteners, which makes belt replacement fast. The PVC200 FxB-NA green FR meets the ASTM D-378 standard’s flame-retardant requirements.
