The current online sales boom that’s stretching logistics centers to the full, sending countless packages trundling around what can be gigantic conveying systems, is entirely dependent on reliable and high-performance conveyor belts. Habasit AG based in Switzerland, the global market leader in conveyor, processing and drive belts, is showcasing its extensive portfolio for intralogistics - and aims to find a solution for just about any scenario brought about by this boom.
As transportation systems are generally individually planned and custom-manufactured, the team is driven to produce a large portfolio of solutions to fulfill all specifications. When it comes to selecting conveyor technology components, nowadays almost all companies not only look for low operating costs but also focus on eco-friendly production, meaning lower CO2 emissions and proper disposal. Habasit has addressed these concerns by adding a specially developed impregnation to its Eff-Line belts, which reduces friction and makes them more robust - cutting systems' energy consumption by up to 45 percent. What’s more, the reduction in friction naturally extends the belts' lifespan, which further reduces the overall cost of material flow applications.
