A Modular Lightweight for Exceptional Belt Forces
The new Prolink series 17 of plastic modular belts is ideal for industrial applications like parcel distribution and corrugated cardboard and paper processing.
Series 17 belts are straight with a pitch of 25.4 mm (1 in) and their design with a smooth, homogeneous surface stands for durability. The expectedly light weight cuts energy consumption, while offering exceptional rigidity and tensile strength (tensile forces up to 32 N/mm). The enhanced contact area of the underside to the slider bed makes the belt particularly low noise and wearproof. A special module shaped like a beluga whale enables quiet transition between the slide rails.
A flame-retardant, PXX version is available for the automotive industry.
The S17-0 FLT variant now comes in light gray polyoxymethylene/polyacetal (POM) and blue polypropylene (PP).
Polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) hinge pins are available for belts made of POM and PP hinge pins for PP belts. The unique keyhole pin retention system makes the hinge pins very easy to remove and fit. This is an enormous advantage, especially in the case of wide belts requiring more than one hinge pin.
