Siegling Transilon conveyor belts and processing belts for speeding the flow of goods and for economic processing in the light materials handling industry.
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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
One of Forbo’s key corporate objectives is to maximise environmental friendliness and to enhance product value at the same time. On this basis, we successfully conduct research and development by closely liaising with OEMs and end users. The new generation of energy-saving conveyor belts is another prime example of our approach. The Amp Miser™ 2.0 belts now allow you to save up to 50 % of the energy required for power transmission. And they don’t cost any more than conventional belts.
In Bio Belt products, petroleum-based feedstock and synthetic materials have been extensively replaced by renewable plantbased materials. Because they are bio-degradable at the end of their product life, these play a major role in complying with the “cradle-to-cradle” principle. With an additional, already patented, special coating on the underside (Amp Miser™) they achieve energy savings of up to 40 %.
Transtex conveyor belts are characterized by ruggedness, lateral stiffness, wear and puncture resistance
Logistics and parcel service companies operating worldwide have been relying upon Transtex quality for years. On an exclusive basis, Forbo Movement Systems have added Transtex conveyor belting to their product range with worldwide stocks, sales and service. Thanks to ready availability, we are expanding your possibilities wherever conveyor belts are placed under heavy mechanical stress.
An extensive product range with two product lines is available. The maximum production widths - depending on the type - range from 1,800 mm to 2,100 mm. Larger widths are available on request.
Our extensive experience in the field of light materials handling is our guarantee for excellent product quality and practice-oriented service.
