Exciting innovation for materials handling

Presse_Produkt_polyvanced_RundriemenNot all conveyor belts are equal. Following on from smooth surfaced round straps the advanced tubing leader polyvanced from Osnabrück is now introducing weldable round belts with rough surfaces. Round belts with smooth surfaces have already been in production with enormous success since 2008 as a special development within the core competency of tubing. The demand throughout the drive and conveyor systems industries is enormous for the new rough surface straps. The key markets here are in the foodstuffs, packaging and logistics industries. Polyvanced CEO Robert Mayr knows what counts most with every new development are the verifiable benefits and these have emerged clearly.

The new rough polyurethane round belts are highly resistant to oil, grease, water, foodstuffs and numerous chemicals. Depending on the belt type the hardness levels are 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 the new product brings significantly cutting machine down time. Economic 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. These are advantages that are very much in demand throughout the industry.

The current production statistics are a clear indicator of how polyvanced is scoring and thrusting ahead with innovation power. The company produces some 50 million metres of tubing annually and the volume is 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 %.
