ContiTech Vibration Control has expanded its product portfolio for Rotafrix friction rings. Recently, drive components in a variety of sizes have been available as a package including the corresponding wheel bodies. “In this way, we are offering our customers what is currently a unique service,” says Frank Dahmen, head of industrial sales at ContiTech Vibration Control.
Friction rings by ContiTech are used in rolling-contact transmissions and drum drives. In comparison to friction wheels, friction rings are not permanently vulcanized to a rim, but they are simply fitted to a wheel body. Up to now, the conveyor unit operators had to provide, or even produce, the wheel body required themselves. In order to simplify the process for customers, ContiTech has developed the package solution. “The friction ring and friction body are perfectly matched, allowing optimal interaction,” explains Dahmen. "By providing this service, we are simplifying the fitting of new systems and offering cost-effective package solutions for retrofitting."
Further information about the Rotafrix friction rings and friction wheels can be found on the ContiTech website at www.contitech.de/avx. In addition to the standard designs with a diameter of 60 to 1300 mm, custom changes are also available to customers upon request.
