ContiTech at MDA India: Innovations for machine and plant engineering

Technology company ContiTech presents solutions for drive technology and air actuators / Environmentally-friendly belts for industrial applications / Production sites in India

(PresseBox) (Hanover/Bangalore, ) Environmentally-friendly drive belts and air actuators that are resistant to harsh environmental conditions are the highlights presented by ContiTech (hall 1 DL, booth 422) at MDA India in Bangalore. From December 6 to 9, 2011, the technology company from Hanover, Germany, will be displaying its rubber and plastic products at the leading trade fair in India for drive technology and automation. India is one of ContiTech's most important markets, and is also equally interesting as a production location and sales market. The company has increased its commitment in the market over the past several years and will continue to expand its presence there significantly.

Drive belts for environmental protection

With the BlueConcept family of drive belts, ContiTech has taken on a trail-blazing role in environmentally-friendly and health-friendly industrial applications. At MDA India, the company is showing the CONTI-V® PIONEER wrapped V-belt, which is composed mainly of renewable raw materials, and, although it is made without carbon black, it is electrically conductive. In addition, the carbon black and allergen-free timing belt, CONTI® SYNCHROBELT PIONEER, will be on display. It is the ideal solution for drive applications that people come into contact with.

From its complete range of drive belts for machine and plant engineering, ContiTech is also presenting its high-performance timing belts and flat belts made of polyurethane, rubber timing belts as well as wrapped V-belts and raw edge heavy-duty V-belts.

Air actuators with an impressively long-life design

Also on display are air actuators for pneumatic tasks in machine, apparatus and plant engineering. Air actuators are used in many industries when a lot of force has to be produced with pneumatics, but little space is left for installation and especially difficult environmental conditions are prevalent. The long-life design of ContiTech air actuators is a convincing factor in applications involving heavy deposits and contamination - such as in the wood processing or textile machine industries, in offshore usage, saw mill machines or the food industry. Since air actuators function without mechanically operated parts like pistons, piston rods and friction seals, they are not subject to wear and require no maintenance. This gives them an edge over conventional cylinders. They are also more environmentally-friendly as they do not require oil.

Involvement in India

ContiTech has had a presence in India for many years, operating two production plants and employing around 900 people there. At the New Delhi location ContiTech produces high-quality drive belts, and it is from here that Indian customers get their supplies. Air spring systems are also manufactured in New Delhi for the Indian market, and especially for the state-run Indian Railways. Near Kolkata, ContiTech produces conveyor belts for mining and other industrial uses. In addition, ContiTech supplies the Indian subcontinent with hoses.
