Habasit Rossi has extended its high performance range of HabaSYNC timing belts for food production and packaging applications to include a new blue Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) belting solution which is specifically designed for use in wet environments, where humidity, wash down and oily conditions can be found.

FDA approved, the HabaSYNC Blue 90 Shore A Polyether TPU timing belt is reinforced with aramide cords to ensure consistent and exact positioning, and is available in T5 and T10 pitches.

Ian Thornham, Sales and Marketing Director at Habasit Rossi, said: “With hygiene and process efficiency continuing to set the agenda for the food industry it is essential that we are continually working to develop innovative new solutions which will help plants meet these strict regulations as well as maximise productivity and efficiency.

“As part of the quality assurance process, blue is now increasingly becoming the belt colour of choice for food production environments as it is easily identifiable should belt damage occur. Our new high performance blue TPU belt is FDA approved and provides the perfect solution for manufacturers looking to significantly improve plant efficiency and stay ahead of the pack.

“In the food industry specifically this addition of a genuine blue FDA base belt along with our ability to put blue and other FDA compliant covers on a range of timing belts offers a comprehensive range of conveying and positioning solutions when added to our fabric, plastic modular and Cleandrive belt types.”

The HabaSYNC range of timing belts have been specifically designed for applications where precise product positioning, indexing or synchronisation are vital. Belts can be made to exact dimensional needs and can be supplied complete with guides, profiles and covers to suit every application including accumulation and indexing, to ensure a customer’s product or component is always in the right place at the right time.

Combining Habasit’s extensive range of fabric belt technology as covers to timing belts we are able to offer a comprehensive range of unique solutions. This range of belts is ideal for tray handling and filling, slicing and portioning, pick ‘n’ place systems, packaging and palletising lines.

The whole range features precisely formed teeth with accurate tolerance, which together with the robust steel and aramide cords, ensures consistent and exact positioning.

Available in both imperial and metric pitches, the range is designed to deliver many years of high quality performance. It is made from thermoplastic polyurethane and manufactured in open lengths, which can be slit to width and cut to length to make exact size belts.
