February 3, 2015 - ContiTech  exhibits at Hannover Messe, where it will have two stands this year. At the corporate stand in Hall 6 (Stand F18), it will be all about the process and materials expertise of the rubber and plastics specialist and its added-value partners. At Stand B18 in Hall 25, the focus will be on products such as drive belts, hoses, hose lines and air spring systems as part of the leading trade fair, Motion, Drive & Automation.

The Highlights from Hall 25

The products on display in Hall 25 will include drive belts, hoses, hose lines, and air spring systems from ContiTech. ContiTech has broadened its range of eco-friendly drive belts marketed under the BlueConcept label. The label stands for environmentally compatible and healthful industrial applications. In the future, a timing belt will also be available for project business. The CONTI  SYNCHROBELT PIONEER contains no carbon black and is free of allergens, making it the alternative drive solution for the consumer goods industry. With the CONTI  POLYROPE, ContiTech has made further developments to the successful flat belt technology that was introduced to the elevator industry in the late 1990s. The CONTI  POLYROPE is certified according to the 95/16/EC Lifts Directive, and offers numerous advantages over conventional steel cord. The coating is abrasion-resistant and resistant to hydrolysis, and has excellent traction characteristics – reliable power transmission is ensured even at maximum load. The CONTI  POLYROPE is available in widths of 25 mm and 50 mm and with both a flat and a ribbed rear side.

Fuel lines with electrically conductive liners have been used in series production in the automotive field for some time now. And this application is now becoming increasingly interesting for industrial vehicles as well – not least due to the relevant regulations in the U.S.A. The conductive inner layer made from FPM (fluoropolymer rubber) prevents a static charge from forming at high flow rates, which – in the worst case scenario – could lead to flying sparks and the spontaneous ignition of the vehicle. The ultra-flexible fuel lines from ContiTech are suitable for gasoline, diesel, and biodiesel, and permanently withstand operating temperatures from -40°C to 160°C. Projects with sustained temperatures of 180°C are currently undergoing final testing.

The CONTI  CLEANJET – FDA is the multi-purpose hose for the food industry and is suitable for both the thorough cleaning of machines and systems as well as for the hygienic processing of liquid foodstuffs containing oil and grease. Thanks to a specialized, highly resistant rubber compound, the CONTI  CLEANJET – FDA can even handle corrosive chicken fat.  The robust brand-name hose also reliably delivers hot water up to a temperature of 80°C and an operating pressure of 90 bar, which sets this high-quality universal hose apart from all other cleansing and food hoses available on the market.

 In the past few years, the special Value-Adding Partner (WeP) show has become a fixed feature of the ContiTech presence at the Hannover Messe. In collaboration with ContiTech at the stand in Hall 6, select suppliers show how important it is for industrial partners to interact with one another and trust one another when manufacturing a high-quality product. They also highlight the latest technical trends. The technologies of the value-adding partners extend from high-performance plastics and fabrics through to systems solutions in mechanical engineering.
