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. Therefore, they are safe to use – even on galvanized slider beds – and generate energy efficiencies of up to 50 per cent.
The Amp Miser™ 2.0 belts feature cutting-edge tension members made of polyester and enhanced Texglide™ technology. As a result, the friction between the underside of the belt and the slider bed (therefore the energy consumption) are much lower. “Compared with conveyor belts that have standard underside fabrics, up to 50 per cent of the energy required for power transmission can be saved in applications with long conveyors and heavy loads”, explains Bernd Langreder, Segment Manager of Logistics Europe at Forbo Siegling GmbH, Hanover, Germany.
