1. Heavy Duty Power Transmission Belt
Material preparation with flakers or chippers requires high inputs of energy if chips of consistent quality are to be manufactured. This constancy of chip quality has a direct effect on subsequent board properties, making it of crucial importance for the production of wooden boards.
Technical Requirements of the belts
As a constantly varying load affects the tool shaft during wood milling, the drive system should be designed such that shocks and impacts can be compensated for. In these applications, therefore, highly efficient heavy-duty power transmission belts are a better alternative than sensitive mechanical transmission designs with considerable energy losses.
With its Extremultus drive belts of the P and endless lines, Forbo Movement Systems provides a particularly effective solution for the transmission of large amounts of energy with a high degree of efficiency. While, in the P series, high damping properties have an additional positive effect, the splice-free endless line operates especially quietly and allows low elongation at fitting.
With Siegling Extremultus heavy-duty drive belts, chippers, flakers can be driven reliably and efficiently, with especially small reversing-drum diameters.
Features, Functions, Benefits
Siegling Extremultus drive belts have a long service life and a high load tolerance, are elastic, and absorb vibrations and shocks. Among their impressive benefits are:
- particularly high efficiency – up to 98%
- exceptional synchronization accuracy
- power capacity of up to 1850 kW
- belt speeds of up to 100 m/s
Our customers value these belts’ long service life, low maintenance requirements and quiet, vibration-free operation that is easy on bearings.

For simple, rapid, efficient installation and other service activities, specialists and equipment are available to our customers under the global FS service network.
Which equipment is ideal in a given situation depends mainly on
the type of splice. Other important aspects are where the splice is to be produced (workshop or on-site assembly) and the relevant belt width.
