      • SIEGLING TRANSILON CONVEYOR BELTS AND PROCESSING BELTS

      • Siegling Transilon conveyor belts and processing belts for speeding the flow of goods and for economic processing in the light materials handling industry.

        Efficient Conveying and Processing

        Certain conveying and processing tasks require mechanical, physical or chemical belt properties which are made possible only by special production processes, combination of materials or finishing.

        The standard Siegling Transilon construction consists of polyester fabric as tension member with synthetic or elastomer coatings. Siegling Transilon is used successfully in industrial, commercial and service companies worldwide. The standard product range includes over 160 various conveyor belt types and constructions for the most diverse of application requirements.

        We offer special product ranges for numerous industries and applications.

          • Horiyontal conveying

          • Even a conveying task which seems quite simple can require a whole host of belt properties. Forbo Movement Systems has the best belt type for various goods, conveying speeds, reversing systems, stop & go and accumulation conveying, and other operating conditions. Some examples of the diverse features of Siegling Transilon include:

            • troughable to particularly laterally stiff types
            • exceptionally low-noise to flame-retardant
            • pyrolysis-resistant to suitability for conveying unpackaged food
            • non-antistatic to highly conductive and ATEX-approved
            • surfaces suitable for accumulation conveying and especially good grip.
          • Inclined conveying

          • Goods can be conveyed at an incline even on smooth belt surfaces. The conveying angle is dependent on a variety of factors such as the type of goods being conveyed, the top face coating and external factors like dust, moisture, etc. 

            For large conveying angles and for the conveying of small pieces and bulk goods, Forbo Movement Systems offers patterned belts or belts equipped with lateral profiles.


            In the Picture one can see inclined conveying in the tobacco industry. In this area, conveying angles of up to 22° are possible for belt types with smooth surfaces.
          • Curved Belts

          • Thanks to their fabric design, Siegling Transilon curved belts are exceptionally flexible, both laterally and longitudinally, ensuring an optimal distribution of forces within the belt.

            Depending on the application, either conical or cylindrical drums are used, or in some cases even knife edges or rolling knifge edges.

            Curved belts can be fabricated from one or more segments. Fabrication from several segments improves the distribution of forces within the belt. Curved belts can be equipped with perforations or eyelets along the edges so they can be attached to tracking systems later on.

          • Collection and distribution

          • When pushers and ploughs are used, the belt’s laterally stiff design guarantees that it will lie flat and continue to run in a straight line reliably. The lateral loading and discharge of goods is achieved by using very smooth, wear-resistant surfaces. Lateral sorters (e.g. carrier cells), on the other hand, require very thin, flexible belts whose surfaces have high coefficients of friction. Their special tension member construction means that they have very low energy consumption. 

            The image shows a lateral sorter in a distribution centre. The high acceleration requires the belt surface to have an extremely high coefficient of friction.

          • Processing belts

          • With Siegling Transilon, the gap is often bridged between the classical conveying function from “A” to “B” and an active function in the production process.

            For example, in the textile industry our processing belts stack thin layers of web, in large bakeries they form balls of dough, in the wood industry they compress chip mat in the pre-press, in dairies milk is coagulated on the belts to form cheese. Here are just a few examples of process operations.

            Cross-lapping of web layers in the nonwoven industry. High production speed and accele ration of masses while the web is guided directly between the belts places extremely high demands on the processing belts.

            In large bakeries for example, balls of dough are formed as a result of differing belt speeds.

          • Profiles and Sidewalls

          • Conveyor belts equipped with profiles are used for the inclined conveying of bulk goods and small items.
            Profiles are available in various shapes and sizes, and in some cases can be supplied as roll material.

            Sidewall profiles are used – often in conjunction with lateral profiles – to contain bulk goods on the sides of the belt.
          • Top Face Patterns

          • Siegling Transilon patterned belts guarantee good grip or good release properties, depending on the design and goods conveyed.

            Conveying angles of up to 30° can be achieved without profiles with certain patterned belts.

            So patterned belts are not just an affordably-priced alternative to profile belts. The combination of patterned belts with longitudinal or lateral profiles is often possible.

            Patterns can be peeled off from the belt edge up to a width of 150 mm (e.g. for clamps in swan-neck conveyors).

          • Modifying Belts

          • Applying Free Forms
            By precisely milling the surface of the belt and cutting virtually any types of perforations, Forbo Siegling offers a range of new options for many production processes. We can supply more detailed information on request.

            Modifying Belts with Lasers
            Positioning and control markings, logos, graphics, technical information and much more can be lasered into the surface of the belt. No material is added, a different colour is merely applied to the surface of the belt. Because of its extreme durability, precise positioning and crisp printing results, this process opens up new ways of using belts.
          • Belt Edge Sealing

          • Belt edge sealing prevents oil, grease, water, foreign bodies and bacteria from penetrating the belt. At the same time, it increases the service life of the conveyor belt.

            This additional protection can be applied to virtually every Siegling Transilon conveyor belt. You can find detailed information on the combinations possible in our data sheets.

          • Knife Edge Belts

          • Due to their fabric design, Siegling Transilon knife edge belts are especially flexible longitudinally and rigid laterally. They are suitable for use on knife edges as of 3 mm radius.

            Even wide belts run flat, so even lightweight goods remain in position.

            With their high coefficients of thermal conductivity, knife edge belts are exceptionally well suited for use as cooling tunnel belts. They are physiologically harmless, largely imper-vious to oils and greases and meet BfR, EU and FDA stipulations for the conveying of unwrapped foodstuffs. They can also be supplied in blue and white HACCP design.

          • Antistatic Belts

          • Antistatic Siegling Transilon belts are equipped with an electrically conductive static inhibitor that is abrasion-protected and embedded in the belt.

            It effectively prevents static build-up from the running belt. Antistatic belts do not always guarantee discharge of previously statically-charged conveyed goods, e.g. in the nonwovens industry, when conveying plastic or electronic components. In these cases HC belts should be used, particularly when they have to be ESD safe.

            In line with DIN-EN-ISO 284 thresholds, the electrical resistance measured on the inside (lengthways) RDi, according to ISO 21178, is less than 3 x 108 Ω.

          • NA (Non-antistatic)

          • Siegling Transilon NA belts are produced without an electrically conductive antistatic element. Tested according to ISO 21178 the electrical surface resistance RDi is more than 3 x 10^8 Ω.

            Combined with the coating materials appropriate in each case, NA belts guarantee smooth operation when using in electro-magnetic fields such as machine components with high frequency, X-ray and microwave applications.

            NA belts in many different coatings with specific properties for particular products provide a high safety standard, in particular because of stringent quality controls, in the food and tobacco, chemical, pharmaceutical and particle board industries. In this way sensitive metal detectors for example can be used to an optimum with Siegling Transilon NA belts.

          • HC (Highly-conductive)

          • Siegling Transilon HC belts (Highly-conductive) are particularly antistatic due to a conductive top face and underside. Measured in line with ISO 21178, the electrical surface resistivity of the top face and underside is ROA < 3 x 10^8 Ω. In the majority of belt types, the surface resistivity ROA of the top face and underside is even less than 1 x 10^7 Ω and as a result falls significantly short of the threshold stated in DIN-EN ISO 284.

            Numerous belt types also have an electrical volume resistance RD < 1 x 10^9 Ω, verified in accordance with ISO 21178.

            HC belts are particularly suitable for conveying electronic components and anywhere where, if the belts and the goods conveyed are charged, there is a detrimental effect on product quality e.g. in the nonwoven or chemical industries.

          • Accumulation Belts

          • Accumulation belts are used when collecting conveyed goods behind a barrier or when sliding onto or off a belt. The particularly stiff design of the belts ensures level conveying in larger belt widths. So pushing unit goods on or off from the side is no problem at all.

            Minimum friction coefficients between slider bed and underside and accumulation goods and top face must be maintained so that required power and wear and tear is kept low.

            Siegling Transilon accumulation belts with duroplastic urethane coating (UH or U2H) are particularly abrasion resistant and have low friction coefficients. These properties guarantee long durability and reduce maintenance costs.

          • SE/FR (flame retardant)

          • Flame retardant Siegling Transilon belts (SE/FR) prevent the fire from spreading. In keeping with EN 20340/ISO 340 (SE) and MSHA Std 2G (30CFR18.65) measured according to ASTM D-378 (FR) these belt extinguish after being subjected to an open flame and do not re-ignite should they come into contact with a stream of air.
             
          • ATEX-compliant Processing Belts

          • Since 1 July, 2003 guideline 94/9EG for avoiding ignition risks in explosive atmospheres, known in the trade as “ATEX guideline 95”, has come into force. When used in conveyors, processing belts are also at risk of ignition from static electricity or friction heat, if they are not used properly. Two partners are responsible for seeing this is done: the belt supplier and conveyor manufacturer.

            As a belt supplier Forbo Siegling faces up to this responsibility and if required, will supply processing belts that may be used in an explosive atmosphere.
