ContiTech: High-Tech Solutions Made of Rubber and Plastic for Intralogistics
Electrically conductive fuel hoses from ContiTech dissipate static charge / Bushings and absorbers with an integrated fluid system for optimal damping / The durability and long service life of air actuators and air springs win users over
ContiTech Fluid Technology possesses extensive material expertise in ducting media, where innovative material combinations ensure greater safety and flexibility in industrial vehicles. At the CeMAT in Hanover, the company is presenting an electrically conductive fuel hose and a versatile oil line that is both flexible and dimensionally stable. The ultra-flexible fuel lines from ContiTech are suitable for gasoline, diesel, and bio-diesel. They withstand operating temperatures from -40 through 150°C. The hose cover is resistant to radiant heat of up to 150°C and, for short periods of time, even 175°C.
Both flexible and dimensionally stable, the oil lines from ContiTech are approved for operating pressure of up to 80 bar and already successfully used in forklift trucks. They are suitable as both low-pressure hydraulic lines and for countless other applications in which oil is transported.
Vibration competence powerhouse
At the CeMAT, ContiTech Vibration Control will showcase customized vibration-control innovations for construction machines and industrial trucks. Bushings make possible rotational movements and can also insulate against undesired vibrations. With an integrated fluid system, hydro bushings provide greater comfort in driver cabs than do classic variants. They can, for example, be used as engine and cab mounts in industrial vehicles. The hydraulic absorbers also have an integrated fluid system. Suspension spring characteristics and damping behavior can be separately optimized in the case of these elements.
Strong in pneumatics and vibration damping
ContiTech air springs and air actuators are used in various industrial applications. They exhibit unique product properties and long service life under demanding operating conditions in particular. Air actuators are used as pneumatic lifting and press cylinders for difficult tasks in machine and plant engineering. They are of major benefit in pneumatic systems whenever space for installation is tight and ambient conditions are especially adverse. Air spring systems are used to store heavy systems in such a way that vibrations are dampened.
