Hanover, October 26, 2022 – New Friction Top series 18 module variant for superior product grip
Forbo Movement Systems has added a Friction Top variant to its tried-and-true Prolink series 18 plastic modular belt line. The Prolink belt with a pitch of 25.4 mm (1 in) can be used as a curved and spiral belt.
This S18-44 FRT1 2.2 variant with Friction Top Pads (FRT Design 1) is made of particularly durable rubber and provides superior grip but doesn’t leave any markings on products. Even exceptionally sensitive ones are conveyed flawlessly.
The belts can be used in lots of areas of the food industry. Examples include inclined conveying and applications requiring a high level of positioning accuracy, or good grip during acceleration of boxes or trays. The series 18-44 FRT1 2.2 is also the right choice in wet conditions and when unpackaged dough products, meat and poultry are conveyed.
