Forbo Movement Systems at LIGNA 2015 – Innovations all along the line

16-Mar-2015 - Germany

The Forbo Movement Systems team is looking forward to presenting the latest conveyor and processing belt innovations for the wood- and furniture-processing industry at this year’s LIGNA 2015 in hall 27, stand F57.

One of the leading belt manufacturer’s particular highlights is a new forming belt with enhanced resistance to hydrolysis, improved chemical resistance to substances in wood and release agents, as well as better release characteristics. In field tests, the new belt type has already proved to be superb, especially in tough conditions such as when PMDI is applied to bond OSB boards.

For the first time the Forbo Movement Systems product portfolio can also offer a completely new generation of air-cooled lightweight heating presses for splices of up to 1,500 mm belt widths. The time required for splicing is therefore very short. And an integrated control, as well as a compressor and cooling unit, make the presses easy and reliable to handle.

Versatile, problem-solving modular belts
When conveyor belts need to meet extreme demands, for example regarding temperature or durability, Forbo Movement Systems’ Prolink plastic modular belts are excellent solutions. Furthermore, this product group (and series 8 in particular) has a good track record as a problem-solver in reversing operations, in conveying furniture parts on pallets, as well as when the conveyor cannot be too high. Prolink series 8 is probably the most hard-wearing 1-inch modular belt on the market and has already been used often in the above-mentioned applications.

Another focus of the showcase is a new UV belt for use in UV drying systems. The belt stands apart because of its dimensional stability, flatness and excellent tracking. Furthermore, the surface of the belt is very easy to clean. In other words, belting specialist Forbo Movement Systems offers one-stop solutions, whether it’s Siegling Transilon conveyor and processing belts, Siegling Prolink plastic modular belts, Siegling Extremultus high-efficiency flat belts, or splicing tools and accessories.

Which is why many global players in the industry have trusted in our product quality, global service facilities and expertise for many years.
