Osnabrueck, Germany -- "Our new round belts achieve extraordinarily high frictional coefficients with their special roughness type. They have a remarkably long service life and combine quality with economy to perfection," claims polyvanced ceo Robert Mayr.
The Osnabrueck-based tubing producer is demonstrating strong technical competence with this innovation, saying that its round belts with smooth surfaces have been in successful since 2008 as a special development within its core competency of tubing.
Poyvanced says demand throughout the drive and conveyor systems industries for the new rough surface polyurethane belts is enormous. Key markets are in foodstuffs, packaging and logistics.
Benefits include high resistant to oil, grease, water, foodstuffs and numerous chemicals. Depending on the belt type, hardness is between 80 and 92 Shore A and the belts are produced in the colours green and blue.
Ultra-fast installation of the rough round belts direct into a plant system is a further big advantage and significantly cuts machine down time, says the company. Economical warehousing is assured by a simple cutting to length of whatever is required from a stored roll. The evenly structured surface brings greatly improved transport properties while the problem of conveyor slip is significantly reduced.
Polyvanced said it currently makes about 50 million metres of tubing annually, with the volume increasing rapidly. Against this background preparations are going ahead rapidly at the production location in the Czech Republic to be able to increase production volume by over 60 percent, the company said..
