HOT VULCANISED CORRUGATED EDGES - OUR HOTWALL

Conveyor belts are essential in numerous industries where efficiency and reliability are crucial. One of the most innovative developments in conveyor belt technology are hot vulcanised corrugated edges. But what makes these corrugated edges so special and why should companies consider switching to this advanced solution?

ADVANTAGES OF CORRUGATED EDGES FOR CONVEYOR BELTS

Corrugated edges primarily serve to prevent products from sliding sideways off the conveyor belt. This simple but crucial function ensures a smooth transport process. However, corrugated edges offer more than just stability:

  1. Capacity enhancement: Corrugated edges reduce product loss during transport, increasing overall transport efficiency.

  2. Transport flexibility: Corrugated edges allow products to be transported at different angles, even up to 90 degrees. This increases the possibility of bridging height differences, which is very important for various industrial applications.

WHY CHOOSE HOT VULCANISED CORRUGATED EDGES?

Hot vulcanised corrugated edges are produced through an automated process that results in an exceptionally high-quality end product. This technology offers significant advantages over traditional methods such as cold bonding:

  1. Excellent adhesion: Warm vulcanised corrugated edges have a much stronger adhesion than cold pasted variants, greatly reducing the risk of loosening during use.

  2. Resistant to temperature and product influences: Unlike adhesives, hot vulcanised corrugated edges are resistant to variations in temperature and influences of the product being transported. This makes them more durable and reliable in varying conditions.

  3. Environmentally friendly and automated: The production process is not only more efficient, but also more environmentally friendly due to less waste and energy consumption. Moreover, hot vulcanised corrugated edges are less sensitive to smaller drum diameters, increasing the versatility of their application.

PHASE I - READY FOR PRODUCTION!

We currently offer hot vulcanised corrugated edges of DIN-Y and MOR quality, designed to meet both current and future requirements. These corrugated edges are available in different heights, suitable for both width-stable and non-width-stable conveyor belts. With a maximum production width of 2,100 mm, they are ideal for various industrial applications.

FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS IN PHASE II

Our future plans include even higher corrugated edges, including fabric reinforcement, to continue to meet the growing demand for robust conveyor solutions.

Together we create 

Hot vulcanised corrugated edges represent the future of conveyor belt technology. Thanks to advanced manufacturing processes and materials, they offer significant advantages in terms of performance, reliability and durability. If your company is looking for a solution to improve conveyor processes and increase efficiency, hot vulcanised corrugated edges are the ideal choice. Make the switch to a technology that not only addresses today's needs, but is also ready for tomorrow's challenges.
