“The monitoring system Conti MultiProtect helps to detect damage such as longitudinal slitting or splice faults on the conveyor belt at an early stage during operation and repair the damage in good time. This helps us to avoid extended downtimes,” explains ContiTech application engineer Patrick Raffler. (Photo: ContiTech)

International technology company and industry partner Contitech is experiencing considerable growth potential thanks to increasing connectivity in the industrial sector. “Digitalization is a major opportunity for us to work with our customers to generate added value on a lasting basis. Because we are part of the overall value chain, we can establish the conditions this requires as a supplier and industry partner, and play a key part in shaping the industrial infrastructure. Intelligently connected systems, machinery and equipment pave the way for this,” explains Hans-Jürgen Duensing, member of the Continental Executive Board responsible for the Contitech division. From April 24 to 28, 2017, in Hall 6, Stand F18, ContiTech will be presenting its smart solutions for industrial applications under the strapline “ContiTech.Smart Solutions Beyond Rubber.”

The monitoring system Conti Multiprotect helps to detect such damage at an early stage during operation and repair the damage in good time. Using RFID (radio-frequency identification) chips, Contitech has been able to optimize localization of longitudinal slitting on the belt. The monitoring system is also able to monitor the condition of the joints and identify damaged spots within the carcass. ContiTech will also showcase a new development for its ViProtect app designed for iOS and Android systems at this year’s Hannover Messe. The app allows users to analyze vibrations in driver cabs, engines and other industrial devices using a smartphone.
