Energy savings are the order of the day. In both the public and private sector, improvements made to processes and waste savings are fundamental guidelines in any installation, and conveyor belts can and should contribute to this.
Excellent impact protection, high durability, but also reduction of energy consumption are the pillars of Kauman's R&D&I.
Chemical processes include corrosive, abrasive, high-temperature and fire-resistant products and materials that challenge the useful life of a belt and consequently the operating profitability of an industry. The selection of a belt cannot only focus on a short-term solution, but on the direct and indirect benefits and savings over time.
Containers, goods and bulk products are all transported daily in a port terminal. From ship to silo or between terminals, Kauman understands the need for fast, efficient and safe transport for both people and goods. The belts offered by Kauman are specially designed to work in the harsh conditions surrounding ports and to withstand corrosion caused by the marine environment.
Every day, millions of people and pieces of luggage travel hundreds of metres and sometimes kilometres around airports. To reduce the time wasted moving around, Kauman has developed the Kauport belt that reduces the time and also the tiredness caused by travelling with luggage. If the luggage is checked in, it will also be transported by a ribbed Kauman belt onto the plane.
Logs, splinters and oils are responsible for most of the incidents that occur in the wood industry. A log can break a belt and block a factory's production. A splinter can get caught in a drum and damage a newly mounted belt. Oils and resins infiltrate the rubber and make it lose its characteristics and deform. Kauman has a solution for all these scenarios.
