Hanover, May 18, 2020 – Prolink series 14 plastic modular belts have always enabled very compact returns (>=19 mm) and narrow transfer points when conveying unit goods that aren’t very big. Forbo Movement Systems is now launching a new belt with a curved surface.
The new variant of the 14-25 CUT series with its curved surface is ideal for processing small items of fruit and veg, such as cherries, berries or peas, which require gentle handling. The curved modules on the plastic modular belt (CUT =Curved Top) ensure sensitive produce is transferred exceptionally gently at the return section. The smooth and vibration-free tracking of the belt allows reliable, gentle and loss-free conveying of easily damaged items.
This belt is ideal in applications with slight inclines or declines because the curved module surfaces mean that any items that start to slip get caught in the dips. Another benefit of all series 14 variants is the special fastening system that uses hinge pins without heads. These make assembling or dismantling the belt during maintenance and repair easier and guarantee that the hinge pins are secure at all times.
