Conveyor technology & automation: saving energy with plastic

The transport of goods and merchandise within a company must be quick, reliable and economical. The use of materials with optimized slide properties in your conveying process helps to reduce the conveyor power required and with it the energy used. This in turns improves the performance and efficiency of your machines. We offer special materials for the manufacture of slide-optimized components for your plant and machinery in conveying and logistics processes.

Your advantages

  • More economical production and logistics processes: Good slide friction reduces the conveyor energy required for your processes
  • High process stability
  • Efficient material flow
  • Noise reduction
  • Avoidance of slip-stick effects

Typical areas of application

  • Beverage bottling systems
  • Chain conveyors
  • Automation

Product examples

Slide elements for conveyor systems

Our LubX® product range offers high-performance sliding materials specifically developed for conveyor technology. Thanks to its outstanding slide properties, conveyor systems equipped with LubX® need significantly less energy compared with conventional materials. Slip-stick effects are avoided and process stability is improved. Depending on the application we recommend LubX® CV, LubX® C, LubX® S or LubX® Ast black

Chain guide profile for chain guides

Their low slide friction coefficients enable extruded and milled profiles made of Polystone® M (PE-UHMW) for chain guides to reduce the drive energy required in chain conveyors while at the same time improving process stability. Polystone® M also has permanent self-lubrication properties. More information about our profiles of Polystone® M (PE-UHMW)

Spiral conveyors

Spiral conveyors made of Polystone® M soft (PE-UHMW) that are machined on our modern CNC installations offer good slide properties for soft slide partners, while their particularly low coefficient of slide friction means they are gentle on PET bottles during the conveying process.

Thanks to their outstanding abrasion resistance, high mechanical strength and toughness, SUSTAMID 6G (PA 6G) rollers machined to close tolerances wear less than steel, require little maintenance and so offer a very long service life. More information about SUSTAMID 6G (PA 6G)

Arrange technical advice

The performance and service life of materials used in conveyor systems are influenced by a variety of factors. These factors must be taken into account in order to select the right materials. Examples:

  • Mechanical loading
  • Thermal loading
  • Slide partner
  • Contact with operating resources, parting agents, lubricants and detergents
  • Design conditions, dimensions and tolerances

We are happy to advise you on the selection of suitable materials for your particular application. Just use our contact form at the bottom of the page and write to us.
