New developments in printing blankets by Forbo Siegling at ITMA

Forbo Movement Systems is showcasing is latest product developments at ITMA in Barcelona, Spain. Its new printing blankets ensure top printing quality and enhanced web-laying belts optimise the way the product lies. New power transmission belts set standards, offering energy-efficiency and longer product lives. The Hanover belting specialist will be presenting its company and latest product innovations from 22 to 29 September in hall 2, stand C 235.

Printing blankets with consistent pitch line for maximum printing accuracy
Printing quality is paramount. Which is why Forbo Siegling has developed two new printing lankets that set standards in rotary, flat-bed and digital printing. They have polyester tension members and produce even more accurate printing results. The Print 6646-2.15E is single-ply and has a low-noise underside. This characteristic is particularly important for high speed operation during flat-bed printing. Because of the typical start-stop process during flat-bed printing, belts without enhanced undersides frequently cause irritating noise. With its special fabric design and low surface weight, the belt is also kind to key elements of the machine, such as the magnetic bar cover.

It also ensures longer service lives and cuts energy and maintenance costs as a result. The two-ply PRINT 6736-2.65E was developed for rotary printers based on this innovative high-tech fabric design. In this case, advantages such as reliable, low-noise belt tracking also really bear fruit. PRINT 6736-2.65E combines robustness with extreme repeat accuracy. The belt's thickness and pitch line precision mean that it is easy to retrofit on existing rotary printers.

Web-laying belts without wrinkle forming
Web-laying belts have key functions to fulfil in the manufacture of needle felts. Forbo Siegling is facing up to this challenge and introducing two new web-laying belts at ITMA. With its low-friction coating, the NP 6553 glides even more easily and gently through the non-woven fabric. The look of the product when processing the finest of fibres shows a significant improvement. The belt is highly conductive and therefore functions perfectly without any electrostatic build-up. In relation to the belt's weight, it is also very laterally stiff. This dramatically cuts the risk of creases forming.

The second innovation in the manufacture of non-wovens is the extremely light, two-ply web-laying belt NP 6711 with a low-drag, finely patterned belt surface.The lightweight design ensures especially quiet tracking, particularly when the widths laid are wide. The typical pounding the belt makes is usually avoided. Good release properties are another excellent feature. The result: machinery can be operated even faster and more effectively and wears out much slower.The new generation of particularly lightweight, modular heating presses complements the range of Forbo Siegling innovations for nonwoven production.
