Forbo Movement Systems is launching a new belt. It’s ideal for narrow applications and conveying unpackaged food like chocolate bars or snacks.
The new Transilon E 2/1 U0/U8 LG blue FDA (art. no. 904718) was originally developed for a renowned OEM of tubular bag packaging machines and now makes knife edge applications for mini conveyors possible. The advantage of a conveyor belt with a knife edge is the very narrow gap during belt transfer between two conveyors for instance. Therefore, even very small products are transferred very gently.
The combination of a single-ply fabric and pattern on the surface is unusual. The longitudinal groove surface pattern (LG) ensures perfect grip during inclined conveying and in applications requiring exceptional positioning accuracy.
The blue belt type is predestined for unpackaged food due to its conformity with the standard FDA, EU and MHLW regulations. But it can also convey packaged food in cardboard boxes and film.
