Measures
Through using our M6420 belt in POM with PA rods, Habasit was the only supplier able to guarantee an acceptable lifetime for this application. With an admissible tensile force of 100,000 N/m, this belt is successful in many heavy load applications, including the automotive industry, where skids are transported on long runs. This application only uses 34% of the admissible tensile force!

Benefits
The newly-installed accumulation conveyor has now been running for several months without downtime. The company and its maintenance team are pleased that they finally have an efficient production line. This success story illustrates once again the maintenance-free features of Habasit’s Plastic Modular Belt range in many applications.
