Optimised Energetic Efficiency of MTF-Separators
For our screw separators, such as the MSL 600 Multi-Separator and the SAL 600 Separating Attachment, we now use significantly more economical and even safer motors. By changing the wattage we achieve energy savings of 43% compared to the previous model while maintaining the performance level.
We also score highly in a competitive comparison with significant savings in costs of operation - with the common use of 90 watt motors, this results in savings of over 300 euros with 2-shift operation and an calculated economic service life of 7 years.
The motor speed can also be set from 8 to 140 revolutions thanks to the optimised reduction ratio, making the appliance even more versatile.
FAKUMA: Integrated Solutions for Material Handling (Video)
At the FAKUMA international plastics trade fair from 17 to 21 October 2023 in Friedrichshafen (Germany), MTF Technik presented numerous innovative applications for the internal material flow.
In accordance with the maxim "Space-saving solutions with optimum functionality", visitors were able to see for themselves the latest new developments in the area of parts buffering, such as a compact buffer system with load cell, a floor-deep sliding buffer, a space-saving pick-up system for container buffering, as well as a dosing conveyor angled at 90°. The rectangular separating drum integrated into the discharge was also of great interest.
All in all, it can be observed that the majority of enquiries are increasingly moving from simple conveyor belts to integrated solutions for material handling, such as buffer systems. Product innovations and further developments of well-known devices were predominantly in demand.
Another focus this year was on maintaining contact with our customers. We were able to welcome a large number of existing customers, also together with our representatives, to our stand and hold many interesting discussions regarding upcoming projects.
We say "thank you" to all our visitors and look forward to challenging new projects.
Curious now? Take a look at our FAKUMA video!
Sustainability is our corporate philosophy
"Sustainability" is not just a buzzword at MTF Technik, but has always been part of the corporate philosophy. i.e.:
Local sourcing - 96% of the purchased material volume comes from Germany and the rest from neighbouring countries
The complete engineering and assembly and production takes place in Bergneustadt/Germany
Consistent design of the devices for long durability and availability of spare parts for old devices (up to almost 50 years!)
Customer loyalty - 3/4 of our customers have been working regularly with MTF Technik for more than 10 years, around 2/3 even for more than 25 years
Measures for better energy efficiency of company
MTF Technik has implemented various measures to reduce energy consumption following a comprehensive energy analysis to identify potential savings:
- Modernisation of existing pumps on heating and ventilation systems
- Complete conversion of the lighting to LED technology
- Optimisation of the heating and ventilation system
In addition, a 100kWp photovoltaic system was commisioned. This should be ready for operation at the start of 2024 and therewith we will be able to cover a large part of our energy demand.
Everyone benefits from this - we save costs and make a contribution to climate protection!
The Conveyor Configurator for easy layout planning
The MTF Conveyor Configurator has been established as a user-friendly tool for the individual design of conveyor – in 2022 it was already used 9,000 times for configuration. Herewith, the user can design straight conveyor belts of different sizes (Multi-Tech/I-Tech versions) according to his requirements very quickly and free of any charge. The tool is constantly updated and has just been optimised with regard to the applicable drive units.
All the desired characteristics of a conveyor belt, such as dimensions, infeed and discharge height, belt specifications, drive unit, base frame and some extras can be selected step by step - the program thus includes thousands of possible combinations. The configurator leads the user interactively through the individual stages of the program. If required, a help function is available for each input field. In addition, a plausibility check is carried out parallelly.
After configuration, the designer immediately sees the result of his planning. He receives both a complete 3D drawing in all common CAD formats and a PDF data sheet including all relevant dimensions and specifications, as well as a preview drawing in which the model can be rotated or sections can be created, for example. This data sheet serves as the information basis for a quick quotation by MTF Technik and thus also enables the desired device to be delivered at short notice.

Comeback at the Trade Fair K 2022 in Düsseldorf
MTF Technik gives a very positive summary of the course of the international plastics trade fair K 2022 in Düsseldorf, where presented our well-known bestsellers and further developments in conveying technology.
Despite the persistently tense global economic situation, we were able to record numerous visitors who were in a positive mood and would like to make new investments in their machinery. Many visitors from Germany and abroad were interested in our product range and we registered numerous new contacts.
The regular customers and also the domestic and foreign sales partners of MTF Technik consistently gave positive feedback on our applications and emphasised the quality and reliability of our equipment, which is an important aspect especially in times of crisis.
The topic of recycling and circular economy was present on all sides and was taken up by an angled conveyor belt with various options for metal detection. In addition, our separating and buffer solutions for automating production were in particularly high demand.
New customers were particularly interested in the special demonstration units, where we were able to show a variety of different belts, drive units and underframe variants as well as different equipment options.
Last but not least, our separation demonstration with a space-saving 90° dosing conveyor, which feeds plastic parts via a distributor switch into a rectangular drum and then buffers them in a pick-up caroussel, was a real visitor magnet.
We would like to thank you very much for the interest shown in us and look forward to all new projects with our customers.

Support for the Victims in Ukraine
The Russian war of aggression on Ukraine makes us very dismayed and concerned. We have to witness how the plight of the people on the ground is increasing day by day. Therefore, we as a company are using various ways to help.
On the one hand, we have donated a large amount to the non-profit organisation Aktionsbündnis Katastrophenhilfe.
On the other hand, our employees have handed over various private donations in kind to a local initiative in Bergneustadt, which regularly carries out transports to the crisis area.
Perhaps we can encourage others to support the victims of the war - and to support the numerous aid organisations and local initiatives.
The Company MTF Technik celebrates 47th Birthday
MTF Technik celebrates its 47th anniversary today!
The company was founded by mechanical engineer Hans Gert Schürfeld in Bergneustadt on 1st February 1975. Even back then it was called "MTF" - this German abbreviation stands for "metal processing, transport equipment, conveyor belts".
Initially focussing on the plastics industry, innovative solutions in conveyor technology were developed and various patents were acquired. Almost continuously, MTF Technik has been achieving steady growth and today is a successful family business in the 2nd generation with around 50 employees and numerous representatives worldwide.
Congratulations and many thanks to the entire former and current team, which has made this success possible.

Product configurator is now available for I-Tech small conveyors
The conveyor belt specialist MTF Technik has expanded its online product configurator. From now on, customers can - in addition to the straight Multi-Tech conveyor belts - also design and compose straight Small Conveyor Belts of the "I-Tech" type according to their requirements.
I-Tech conveyor belts are often required in case of restricted available space, as they are predominantly integrated into machines and tool shafts. In this context, it is particularly important to have the complete 3D data available right from the start of the project – and the MTF product configurator offers this service.
Again, all the desired features, such as dimensions, infeed and discharge heights, belt specifications, drive unit, base frame and some extras can be selected step by step. The configurator guides the user through the individual stages of the program and can be operated intuitively. If required, a help function is available for each input field. In addition, a plausibility check is carried out parallel to the respective input.
After configuration, the user receives both a complete 3D drawing in all common CAD formats and a PDF data sheet including all relevant dimensions and specifications, as well as a preview drawing in which the model can be rotated or sections can be placed, for example.
This data sheet can also be forwarded directly to MTF Technik in order to quickly receive a detailed quotation for this selection. Once configurations have been made, they can be saved to an individual account and called up for further applications and easily changed again.
As before, the configurator can be accessed via the red tab on our website or simply click here: MTF Technik | Service | Produkt Configurator . If you have not worked with the configurator before, you will also find general tutorials there for getting started and for the individual functions.
Energy efficiency of the drive motors according to EU regulations
The current regulation regarding the energy efficiency of electric drive units will be repealed and replaced with effect from 1.7.2021 by Regulation (EU) 2019/1781 laying down ecodesign requirements for electric motors and speed governors. The new regulations will then also apply to smaller motors with a power between 120W and 750W.
MTF Technik has always offered very efficient drive units. Depending on the type of drive unit selected, we use motors from 80W in our Multi-Tech conveyor belts. This is made possible by the use of highly efficient planetary gears, such as those used in the internal drive units as well as the drum motors. The I-Tech small conveyor belts are usually equipped with motors with an output of 90W.
Our separator drums are equipped with motors with a drive power of 87W as standard, the drive power of the separator attachments and multi-separators is 50W. These above mentioned motors have such low power ratings that they are not even considered by the new regulation. If stronger motors are used, they will be delivered with energy efficiency class IE2 or IE3 - depending on the desired manufacturer of the drives - by the above-mentioned deadline at the latest.
Our aim has always been to find the best possible and most energy-efficient overall solution for our customers. This means an intelligent optimisation of the entire drive train, starting with the control of the drive - e.g. via a frequency converter, a cycle switching device or a higher-level control system - to the motor, the gearbox and the low-friction design of the actual conveyor belt. The consistent reduction of friction enables the use of smaller drive powers and also avoids abrasion and wear.
Feel free to contact us. We will be happy to advise you on this topic!
New major order for conveyors in injection moulding industry
A renowned German manufacturer of technically sophisticated plastic articles for a wide range of industrial applications has again placed a large order with MTF Technik. Meanwhile, the consignment includes a total of 169 conveyor belts and 3 separation drums. Currently, 350 devices from MTF Technik are in 24/7-operation in this company.
The current order is for custom-made products that have been explicitly designed for different types of machines and applications. This ensures that all produced components are smoothly transferred from the machine with the dropout switch integrated in it and conveyed for further processing. The exact adaptation prevents components from unintentionally jumping out of the process and landing on the floor.

MTF Technik receives new certificate for climate-friendly energy supply
MTF Technik has received a renewed certificate for climate-friendly energy. Since October 2017, our company has been completely supplied with climate-neutral, environmentally friendly energy mainly from renewable sources (0% coal, oil, nuclear power), thus offsetting 158.18 tonnes of CO2 emissions. Our supplier LichtBlick has once again confirmed this contribution with this certificate.
MTF Technik supports the charity project "Helfende Hände Oberberg"
In these times, it is especially important to support social organizations - precisely because their fundraising opportunities are limited due to the pandemic.
For this reason we decided to donate most of our Christmas budget to the local project "Hilfe für Nick & Co. - Helfende Hände Oberberg".
This project helps seriously ill and handicapped children and their families in case of financial shortages. In this way important equipment can be purchased, therapies can be carried out, children's wishes can be fulfilled and the families can be supported in their cooperation with official authorities.
