Megadyne has taken yet another step towards sustainability in power transmission. Namely, Megalinear MegaEco Biobased Open End Timing Belt, which is joining the energy efficiency concept in Megadyne’s eco-friendly solutions. The MegaEco range is made with a polymer derived partially from vegetable sources and its production lowers CO2 emissions. Businesses committed to sustainable operating, carbon footprint reduction, and saving resources shall now have an opportunity to expand their pro-planet initiatives.
The most revolutionary idea behind Megalinear MegaEco Biobased is the use of the vegetable polymer. The technological field, in recent years, has been introduced to renewable polymers derived from vegetable oils. Megadyne proudly stepped in to implement the new compound to power transmission applications. Moreover, after thorough testing, the results confirmed the lack of performance compromises when compared to fossil-based raw materials. Whereas the production emissions of CO2 have been reduced drastically. This revolution opens an environment-caring door for industries such as Agriculture, Energy, Pharma, Material Handling, and Robotics & Automation.
The standard compound of the Biobased Timing Belt is green thermoplastic Polyurethane. Megadyne dyed the belt to provide a contrast to identify and track any maintenance and performance issues, additionally fitting the tone of Agriculture applications such as Vertical Farming. While being an eco-friendly and impact-reducing alternative to standard belt solutions, Megalinear MegaEco Biobased doesn’t compromise the quality of performance – the tooth strength and cord breaking load remain intact. The line is available in the most common pitches (T5/T10 AT5/AT10) making it fully interchangeable with standard belts available in the market. You can join the belts together to design a conveying solution of any length needed.
The green colour of Megalinear MegaEco Biobased makes it easier to identify and track any maintenance and performance issues. It’s also more aesthetically pleasing. The colour of the belt perfectly blends with the greenery of the vertical farms, creating a more visually appealing environment.
