STEEL BELT CONVEYORS FOR SEVERE CONDITIONS since 1929

Volkswagen Autoeuropa

THE CHALLENGE

The Client experienced frequent production stops on the metal sheet stamping lines, due to failures of the conventional synthetic conveyor belts. Those belts were unsuitable for the conveying of metal sheets due to a low resistance to cutting and wearing.
The synthetic belts had to be replaced several times during a year with related high maintenance costs and production losses.

 

THE CUSTOMER

Volkswagen Autoeuropa is a company of the Volkswagen Group. Its manufacturing plant is located in the municipality of Palmela in Portugal.

 

THE SOLUTION

The Magaldi Supercinghia replaced the existing synthetic belts operating on the pressing lines.

Thanks to its unique assembling design, the Supercinghia overcame all related problems of the synthetic belts and their relevant abrupt production stops.
Now the Client can plan when to stop the metal sheet stamping line and schedule its relevant maintenance without any issues regarding the conveyors. More than 85 years of experience gained in several applications has proven that the average lifetime of the Magaldi Supercinghia is around 10 years and even more, while conventional rubber belt and fabric conveyors can count only on months.
