May, 2007 – Forbo Siegling GmbH is presenting its current product range for the meat-processing industry in hall 9.1, stand D55 at this year's "IFFA" in Frankfurt. Siegling Transilon multi-layer conveyor and processing belts based on synthetic materials, provide intelligent solutions specifically customized for manufacturers of meat-processing machinery and the meat processing and packaging industry.
Under the brand name Siegling Prolink, the recently extended plastic modular belt range complements the product range for the food industry. Siegling Prolink is robust and easy to clean, making it ideal for meat processing.
Focal points at the fair are products guaranteeing the user better hygiene and top performance in the production process: The latest example is a new belt type where the advantages of a homogenous belt are combined with the elongational stability of a fabric-based conveyor belt. A unique, patented fabric structure makes this possible.
Another highlight is the Siegling Prolink modular belt series 6, especially developed for the high levels of hygiene required in the meat-processing industry.
With a full range of blue conveyor and processing belts – also available as HACCP types - Forbo Siegling is supporting the ongoing trend towards blue belts in the meat-processing industry, which provide a strong contrast to the goods conveyed and make soiling easy to identify.
Forbo Siegling HACCP belt types provide preventative protection from micro organisms, good release properties and first-class resistance to hydrolysis, making frequent cleaning with hot water possible. The belts are superb thanks to their high level of resistance to UV light, moisture and chemicals.

However, the actual foundation for the company's success to date will remain unchanged: The "belting specialist's" business activities and internal organization will stay as they are and ensure being customer-centric and application-driven remain an integral part of the company's philosophy.
