ContiTech is expanding its portfolio of industrial applications for the conveyor belt industry. Alongside conveyor belts, the company is working hard on smart systems and expanding its range of services. This allows the company to offer its customers holistic solutions that go far beyond the conveyor belt product.
Innovative electronic monitoring systems make it possible to identify the exact condition of the conveyor belts at any time. The newly-developed monitoring system Conti MultiProtect helps to detect splice faults during operation and damage such as longitudinal slitting in good time. Rip inserts (rip detection inserts) are embedded in the conveyor belt. They produce a characteristic magnetic field that is used for monitoring.
In addition, Conti MultiProtect is based on software developed in-house, into which the long-standing expertise of specialists in conveyor belts has been incorporated. “The new system permits even more accurate monitoring of steel cord conveyor belts,” says application engineer Patrick Raffler. “It gives us a detailed picture of the status of the conveyor belts at all times without having to interrupt operations.”
