Easy Transport with Modular Belt Conveyors


(Derendingen) The Swiss belt conveyor specialist Montech AG is exhibiting at interpack 2011, showing specific transport systems and handling components for the packaging industry.

At booth B37 in hall 16, visitors will have the opportunity to see the Vacuum belt and the multitrack conveyor in action. The company will also present the entire range of modular belt conveyors.

The Montech conveyors are based on a modular concept with ready-to-use standard components. Thanks to their modularity, the conveyors can be assembled in variable configurations, extended or shortened with a simple and cost-effective approach. In case of subsequent modifications, the belts can thus be adapted to new operating conditions and requirements very easily, avoiding purchasing new belts.

"Modularity allows to adapt the conveyors to the specific requirements of each customer and to incorporate them into complex plants or machinery," says Gianluca Aloisi, Sales Manager, Montech AG. The Montech belts are particularly suitable for installations on production machinery in different industries and, for instance, find application in packaging equipment, automated assembling systems, machine tools and production plants.

The conveyors have standard widths included between 45 and 800 mm, while their length can be selected freely up to 15 meter length in one millimeter steps. The conveyors can carry weights up to 125 kg.

Multitrack conveyor

To carry parts up to 120 kg, at interpack Montech will show a multitrack conveyor. The belt is available with three different drives with spur gear motor and can be equipped with belts or pulleys. According to the selected drive, there are different options for acceleration, delay, belt speed and positioning. The smooth and delicate handling of parts is guaranteed by accurate acceleration and braking curves.

Vacuum belt conveyor

The Vacuum belt allows conveying all kinds of packages at high speed. Compared to conventional belts, the Vacuum belt offers a more dynamic acceleration and braking curve, combined with higher transport speed. Aloisi: "Conventional handling solutions require an unproductive return track. Montech's Vacuum conveyor has no return and therefore helps increase productivity in the factory." The conveyor is also more cost effective and, compared to other systems, offers the additional benefit of compact dimensions, according to Aloisi.
