Energy efficiency of the drive motors according to EU requirements
The current regulation regarding the energy efficiency of electric drive units will be repealed and replaced with effect from 1.7.2021 by Regulation (EU) 2019/1781 laying down ecodesign requirements for electric motors and speed governors.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.

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.
Further information about this project of the Ursula-Barth-Foundation can be found here (German language):

NEW: Advanced control units for MTF separators
For the separators Multi-Separator MSL/MSR, the Screw Separating Attachments Type SAL/SAR as well as the Separating Roller and Disc Attachments Type TA / SS we are now using a further developed motor control system. The 24V drum motor integrated in each unit can now be operated in 15 speed steps between 15 and 95min-1 via the control system. The speed can easily be adjusted to the respective separation task by means of a rotary switch. As a further innovation, the control system now also has an additional interface via which the unit can be started and stopped. For this purpose, a 3-pole M8 socket is provided on the housing for an external, potential-free switching contact.
