Reduce Covneyor Belt Weight By Up To 30
Aug 31, 2016

The ContiTech Conveyor Belt Group has taken a major step towards sustainable conveyor belt technology: The new Conti lightweight technology can reduce the weight of fabric conveyor belts by up to 30 percent.

“The lower weight significantly reduces the amount of drive energy needed,” explained Frank Kantorek, business development at ContiTech Conveyor Belt Group. “This means Conti lightweight technology makes a major contribution to the conservation of resources and protection of the environment.” In addition to a significant weight reduction, the new technology has other positive effects. At the Bauma international trade fair, the Conveyor Belt Group is presenting the new technology for the first time, using a fabric conveyor belt as an example. The new Conti lightweight technology is used not only for fabric conveyor belts, but also in the manufacture of a whole range of different components. “Over the next few months, we are going to extend the new technology to further products – for example to the engineered products segment,” Kantorek reported. “We are planning to use the technology for profiles, for example, to achieve a significant reduction in component weight.” This way, all market segments and thus all ContiTech Conveyor Belt Group customers will benefit from this pioneering and green development, which fully complies with the ContiTech philosophy: Engineering Green Value.
