Our belting solution
Before we were asked to offer Forbo products, Piovesana tried different competitor products. Those belts failed for different reasons, either due to limited temperature resistance or were too rigid to work on the knife edge. The belts were also too light, fast wearing and difficult to track.
We decided to supply the customer with Siegling Transilon E 3/2 U0/U2 white (dimensions 5690 x 850 mm) with a Z-splice due to its flexibility, scratch resistance (can be cleaned with scrapers) and above all good resistance to high temperatures. These beneficial belt features combined with a very good value for the customer’s investment, resulted in great customer satisfaction.
The customer is now fully convinced that our food belts with PU coating have a better temperature resistance compared to competitors. The customer can use our PU where previously silicone belts had been installed, which are more expensive and mechanically fragile (due to the scrapers).
