Hannover, November 16, 2017 – Special surface pattern optimizes grip for many products in the food industry
Forbo Movement Systems has developed a new type of polyurethane with a very special surface pattern. The surface pattern of the Siegling Transilon E 3/2 U0/U10 WG-HACCP blue FDA belt is a lateral groove (or WG=Width direction Groove) that is like a mini TRI pattern.
This belt type was especially developed for use in the meat and poultry processing industry. Good product grip is essential in cutting machinery, in particular when greasy pieces of sausage or cheese are fed in, and the lateral groove pattern guarantees outstanding results. It has also been successfully used in the fish/seafood industry as well as in cheese processing.
The polyurethane coating is both wear and chemical resistant, boasting a long service life, even with the use of aggressive cleaning and disinfecting agents. The new Siegling Transilon conveyor belt is particularly durable and laterally stiff, making it suitable for many applications in the food industry, including the dough-processing industry and agriculture. It is also ideal on packaging lines and in detection systems.
