The perfect solution
The conveyor belts produced by the team at Volta are made of a homogeneous polyurethane material, which needs to be cut and welded together during production. “There are a lot of steps involved to go from the flat source material to a conveyor belt,” explained Erik Wolterink, Sales Manager. “We make the conveyors in our facility in the Netherlands to ship to distributors worldwide. Those belts come in custom sizes and so we invested in the Kongsberg cutting tables to enable us to deliver the perfect solution for our customers.”
We conducted a lot of tests and the results were so positive that we chose to invest in a Kongsberg solution.
Erik explained that the precision and power of the Kongsberg digital cutting tables is crucial for delivering accurate cuts on a range of substrates. “An example of something we couldn’t do before are funnels and any other shapes made out of the conveyor belt material,” he said. “The cutting table gives us the possibility to cut it beautifully.”
We let the cutter run at night, and when we come back the next morning, the job is done.
