Minimized wear and tear, lower maintenance requirements, and optimized positioning times. Together with LTW Intralogistics, a supplier of intralogistics systems, and with sales partner Synchrotech, ContiTech has developed a new technology for the lift drive of rack feeders. This patented system can be used to position goods in high-bay warehouses quickly and precisely. At the heart of the development is a Synchrodrive timing belt from ContiTech. The new technology has already proven itself in series production, including in deep freeze areas in temperatures as low as 30˚ below zero.

With the Synchrodrive HTD 20M belt even higher pallet weights, greater accelerations, and lifting heights of 30 meters and more are now possible. This is achieved with a distance of 20 millimeters between the teeth, as opposed to 14 millimeters as was the case in the past. In the case of very high lifting heights, the high-performance belt features proportionally lower stretching – an advantage for the systems' key performance indicator. Up to five metric tons can be lifted with the Synchrodrive HTD 20M. The belt is particularly long-lasting, low-maintenance, and does not require lubrication. "It thus meets the requirements of the intralogistics industry, particularly with regard to the payload in combination with the high breakage resistance that is required," declares Rolf Marwede, head of the Polyurethane-Belt segment in the ContiTech Power Transmission Group.
