Measuring Technology in Conveyor Belt Applications

Solutions and concepts for the monitoring of conveyor belts

The list of possible plastic properties is long. Its technical characteristics can be controlled and influenced e.g. by the addition of additives or the choice of the manufacturing process. The scope of application of plastic sheeting material ranges from the sealing of large factory roofs and PE seals for the aroma protection in the food industry to the conveyor belts.

Challenges in the production optimisation and quality control

Conveyor belts are used for diverse applications with different conditions of use - for the transport of materials by logistic companies or mail order companies or also in the mining industry.

In all cases, an unforeseeable failure of a conveyor belt has enormous consequences. Supply chains are interrupted, commitments cannot be complied with, standstills of upstream and downstream systems may result. To avoid this, the following challenges result:

  • Permanent wear control
  • Optimisation of the maintenance interval
  • Maximum availability of the conveyor system
  • Avoidance of customer complaints

Besides the challenges in the production optimisation and the quality control of plastic sheeting products, the permanent monitoring of the condition is another demanding tasks when conveyor belts are used.

Our individual measuring technology solutions for the monitoring of the transported material to the conveyor systems offer a high level of flexibility with respect to the place of installation and the dimensioning of the measuring technology system. We develop the complete solution tailored to your needs either by the possible integration of a measuring system at a deflection drum to detect surface damages of the conveyor belt or the possible integration of a measuring system upstream or downstream of the deflection drum to detect the thickness.

Your benefits at a glance

  • Detection of damages at the material surface
  • 100% monitoring of the conveyor belt for surface damages
  • Damages at the conveyor belt can be detected at an early stage and the necessary repair of the conveyor belt can be planned.
  • Wear control of the conveyor
  • Reduction of the manual wear control
  • Continuous quality contr

Increase the availability (especially for conveyor belts)

Wear of highly stressed products results in unplanned standstills. Maintenance intervals can be optimally agreed and the availability can be increased by a continuous control of the product properties during use.

Our measuring solutions in your production

Reduce the energy costs

Energy costs accrue when raw materials or materials are treated and processed thermally or mechanically. These energy costs can be reduced thanks to a continuous control of the material use and the production process and their optimisation.

We reduce your energy costs and thus improve your result with our measuring systems!

Increase the customer satisfaction

Almost all industrially manufactured products are subject to product standards in which the technical characteristics and the tolerances are described. The manufacturers must observe these standards. In case of official buildings, legal directives must even be observed to protect the well-being of the people.

Our measuring systems make an inline quality control in the production process possible and help to optimise the process.

Use raw materials effeciently

An optimised production does not only mean cost and energy efficiency. It also leads to a sustainable and resource-saving use of materials.

Sustainable and resource-saving means to reduce unintentional excesses and avoidable costs.

Our measuring systems reveal potentials for a material saving and monitor the process so that a minimum of resources has to be used.
