ContiTech AG presents innovative products for greater efficiency in industrial vehicles and machines at the PTC Asia from October 29 to November 1, 2012 (hall E4, booth C6-3). In Shanghai, the technology company from Hanover, Germany, presents air springs and vibration control solutions along with drive belts and industrial lines. “China is one of the key markets for the international economical success of ContiTech,” says Junsheng Liu, general manager of ContiTech China. “A highlight of this year's fair is our drive belts for the agriculture industry, an important sector of the Chinese economy.”
ContiTech has a wide range of timing belts, V-belts and V-ribbed belts for diverse industrial applications. At PTC Asia, the company is showcasing belts that are designed for the extreme requirements of agricultural technology – they impress with their energy efficiency and maintenance-free nature. The CONTI-V® VARISPEED ADVANCE wide V-belt is particularly suitable for power transmission in variomatic transmissions. The CONTI-V® ADVANCE heavy-duty wrapped V-belt transmits large amounts of power safely and reliably. An ideal alternative to chain drives is the new CONTI® SYNCHROCHAIN CARBON heavy-duty polyurethane timing belt. The carbon tension member stretches only half as much as an aramid cord under the same load. As a result, the drive transmits maximum power extremely reliably even in agricultural machinery.
With the CONTI-V® SCOOTER XT, ContiTech is also featuring a wide V-belt for the variomatic transmission of motor scooters: when the driver accelerates, the transmission ratio changes in a continuously variable manner. The ContiTech belt distinguishes itself by its longevity and length stability.
Furthermore, ContiTech is showing SCR hose line systems with heatable quick connectors. They contribute considerably to the reduction of harmful substances. ContiTech makes a major contribution towards the development of environment-friendly machines with lines for efficient air conditioning systems as well. ContiTech also offers lines that can withstand pure rapeseed oil as well as rapeseed methyl ester (RME), widely known as biodiesel, yet can also be used with conventional diesel fuel. Highly flexible hydraulic hoses made of rubber are indispensable components for hydraulically powered systems and forklift trucks, as well as lifting platforms and excavators. With complete sets comprising several lines with various nominal widths and pressure levels ranging from 150 bar low pressure to 420 bar maximum pressure, ContiTech offers complete solutions to its customers. ContiTech also provides hydraulic solutions made of plastic. Pre-formed polyamide fuel lines are a lightweight and cost-effective solution characterized by their flexibility and media resistance.
Robust bellows cylinders and air springs from ContiTech are used for pneumatic lifting and pressure functions in mechanical, apparatus and plant engineering as well as for supporting stationary machines and foundations. At PTC Asia, the company, which also supplies complete air suspension systems, is showcasing convolution air springs for a variety of application fields – from the construction industry and conveyor technology to wood processing, and from the glass industry to agricultural technology as well as the food and paper industries.
Moreover, ContiTech provides vibration control solutions and services. The products manufactured in Changshu, China, include ring elements, which are suitable for bearings in vehicles and machines. With outer diameters of 65 to 256 mm and load capacities of up to 82,000 N, they offer a wide range of applications, as the rigidity can be varied by stacking several ring elements. Bushings that can compensate torque movements and isolate vibrations in industrial vehicles, construction and agricultural machinery will also be on display at the fair. The SCHWINGMETALL® series B mounting elements, which offer good acoustic decoupling at a good price-performance ratio, complete the trade fair presentation.
