These are used worldwide in hardening shops, industrial furnace constructions, the hollow glass industry, the food industry, theelectrical industry and the heat treatment industry, in materials handling technology andi n mechanical engineering. The capabilities and characteristics of our belts are continuously subject to further development for the high-temperature area up to +1200°C. Each belt is specially adapted to the various usage areas. Our customers particularly appreciate our wire mesh belt with homogeneous guard edge. It stands for innovation and maximum quality. Today we have a product range consisting of more than 3000 different metal conveyor belts, which allows us to provide you with the right solution. A wide range of accessories is available for our metal conveyor belts. All of the normal commercial wire and material versions are also processed (in accordance with the European standards).
