Packing machines require drive, conveyor and pressing belts in many places. And the sheer variety of the products out there is matched only by the diverse and challenging requirements made of these belts.
On the one hand, for instance, they need to ensure stable running, high throughput and a long service life; on the other, they also have to offer the best possible surface properties for what are often sensitive products, e.g. an optimum level of hygiene when packing foodstuffs.BGK
has the perfect solution to this problem in the form of its belt kit for truly endless belts. The individual components in the kit allow properties to be tailored precisely to the specific application.
- The carcass forms the “backbone” of the endless belt and determines characteristics including elasticity.
- Coatings on one or both sides define other properties such as the coefficient of friction.
- Treatments such as perforation, punching, slotting and milling or the addition of guiding profiles, cleats and ribs turn a flat belt into a speciality belt.
Only very few companies in the world possess the necessary technology to manufacture what we call a “truly endless belt”: a belt without any joins whatsoever. And this kind of endless belt offers many benefits, such as perfect power transmission without any structural weaknesses as well as even, smooth running. It is also extremely easy to maintain.
Armed with this expertise and its variable modular belt kit, BGK can produce innovative endless belts tailored precisely to the relevant application.
