Amp Miser™ 2.0

New generation of conveyor belts enables energy savings of up to 50 per cent

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 galvanised 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.

Ideal for galvanised slider beds

The Texglide™ finish on the underside fabric is an integral component of the Amp Miser™ belts and doesn’t rub off. The low friction coefficient is permanent. Second generation Amp Miser™ types are therefore ideal for use on galvanised slider beds. Until now this was a problem because during operation zinc abrasion occurred. This sometimes built up or left deposits which made the drums dirty and therefore risked the whole conveyor malfunctioning. Due to the enhanced Texglide™ technology in Amp Miser 2.0, the friction coefficient was halved compared with the previous types. In the case of galvanised slider beds it’s a consistent 0.15 and on non-galvanised steel approx. 0.1.

The name Amp™ is a made-up word and a combination of “ampere” and “miser”. And these conveyor belts really are misers, at least when it comes to power consumption. Of course, the amount saved is logically highest when a lot of conveyor belts are used, so as well as airports, in logistics or distribution centres in particular. These are areas where the benefits of Amp Miser™ conveyor belts really come to the fore. And what’s more, due to lower electricity consumption they are more eco-friendly too.
