‘Titanium’ is Megadyne’s new Power Transmission Belt. A flagship, high-performance product, it aims to deliver a new level of performance for synchronous timing belt drive applications.

The combination of materials and belt design used to create ‘Titanium’ have been tested against industry-leading belt brands and proven to deliver outstanding results.

“The new belt design surpasses the current industries’ offerings with carbon cords, unique cross-linked elastomer construction, and a new low-friction self-lubricating tooth facing. However, one of the most important features is that the belt is anti-static,” says Anna Villalta, Global R&D Manager of Rubber Power Transmission Belts.

The belt’s anti-static features, high-strength cords and wide temperature range make ‘Titanium’ the right choice for high-performance needs across a broad range of industries and applications such as HVAC, Material Handling & Logistics, Agriculture, Wood, Marble & Heavy industry, Textile, Machine Tools, Oil & Gas, Fin Fan.

Megadyne is a member of AMMEGA – a global company located in 40 countries. AMMEGA provides advanced and high-quality belting solutions for over 20 different industries, including global logistics, food production, packaging, material handling and construction.

Successful material handling systems require many different components to achieve efficient results. Material handling systems assist with sorting products in distribution centres. They are highly automated to optimize the productivity and efficiency of a variety of operations. Properly implemented and well-designed material handling solutions reduce operational costs and improve services for a wide range of businesses.

The experts at Megadyne continue to keep pace with the rapid developments in the material handling industry. As a result, we have expanded our selection of conveyor and polyurethane timing belts to meet this industry’s specific requirements and overcome its various challenges. The latest in our line of top-quality products is Megalinear QST, which offers perfect tracking, positive drive, and minimal noise.

Applications that benefit from our innovative solutions include:

Automated Storage Retrieval System (ASRS)
Large Warehouse and Distribution centers use computer aided technology to move and store small and large goods being inventoried. Megadyne high strength synchronous belts are used in both single and double mast fixed aisle lift systems,as well as on gantry cranes and carousel systems.

Transport Platform
As part of the ASRS systems, transport platforms are used to shuttle the goods being stored from the lifting apparatus to the storage rack. Timing belts with high friction, wear resistant covers are used to telescope products into the dedicated storage location.

Offloading & Delivery Conveyors
Offloading and delivery conveyors are typically fitted with at belts, however multiple path polyurethane timing and rubber belts with high friction covers are also common. Special cover materials are available on belts used where accumulation occurs.

In today’s warehousing and distribution environments, offloading of product for specific fulfillment needs can be accomplished with high friction belt right angle diverters. Starting with a base synchronous belt, we offer a broad range of high friction cover surfaces. From Megalinear joined polyurethane synchronous belts and Mega ex truly endless polyurethane synchronous belts with TPU smooth covers, to rubber synchronous belts with homogeneous covers, along with specialty cover materials like DuraTaq® high friction.

Pallet Conveyor
Pallet Handling Conveyors are designed to move light to heavy loads in a precise, flexible manner. Used in warehouse picking and delivery systems or in assembly operations in a number of manufacturing environments. Starting with a base synchronous belt, we offer a broad range of high friction cover surfaces.

Roller Conveyor
Timing belts or poly-v rib belts are commonly used on roller conveyors. On the external side of the roller, power transmission belts deliver power from the motor to the main driven conveyor roller. From this stage rollers are interconnected by either timing belts or poly-v rib belts, some of which can be produced with elastic-stretch properties.
