Hannover, May 16, 2018 – Forbo Siegling’s split sprockets for plastic modular belts allow quick belt changes without dismantling shafts.
The Siegling Prolink series 8 is designed for durability and superior force transmission. It’s the right choice for many industrial applications. Series 8 can manage virtually any challenge whether it comes from pallets, crates, beverages, vehicles or any other heavy unit goods.
A split sprocket has now been added to the sprocket portfolio for this series so that belts can be exchanged quickly and without problems on conveyors. Three diameters are provided with different numbers of teeth (Z12, Z16, Z19) and a choice of shaft mounts (square, round) in various sizes. Some 17 types of split sprockets are available in total.
Outdated or torn components on conveyors often have to be replaced by new generations. These split sprockets now make retrofitting child’s play and assembling and disassembling is easy without the time-consuming process of dismantling the shafts. This is particularly the case when conversions apply, e.g. of conveyors in the tire industry or a wooden slat apron in nonwovens production.
The sprockets are always supplied preassembled (they consist of two halves with 4 screws and nuts). All sprockets are made of hard-wearing polyamide (PA) and come in grey (LG). We can also offer polypropylene (PP) sprockets in white (WT) for especially aggressive environments (e.g. battery acid).
