Hanover, August 2015. Amp Miser™ 2.0 is the second generation of energy-saving conveyor belts from Forbo Movement Systems. The new belts have drastically lower friction coefficients.

New Roller top modular belts – patent pending

Hanover, July 2015 – In numerous internal material flow applications (intra logistics), conveyed products are sometimes accumulated, for example for singling or stabilizing conveying. In other applications, packages, containers or objects with poor sliding characteristics, such as tyres are loaded onto a conveyor belt sideways or at an angle. In such cases, friction is produced, which is generally unwanted and can lead to negative side effects. It either results in premature wear of the belt surface, or – and this is even less desirable – conveyed products may get damaged. In addition, it leads to an increase in energy use.
