The main benefit of the new belt press is that size and weight were reduced by around 50% each compared to the previous machine generation. This means lower investment costs for the customer but achieving the same machine performance. Another advantage is easier access to the machine. With an overall height of only 150 cm (approximately 60”), the gravity zone is at the ideal working height, resulting in reduced time and costs for operating and maintenance work, as well as increasing the availability of the machine.
The machine will be officially launched at the WEFTEC trade fair, starting September 29, 2014, in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.
