FAKUMA 2021 - Positive Response to recent product innovations at the Re-Start
MTF Technik draws a positive balance of its trade fair presence at FAKUMA 2021, which was marked by a cautious re-launch at the end of a period without events due to the pandemic. As a result, the trade fair recorded significantly fewer visitors overall than before.
We were very pleased to meet many of our customers in person again and to exchange ideas about new projects. We are particularly proud of the new interested parties that we were able to inspire with our conveyor technology. The visitors were also very interested in our various solutions for buffering in confined spaces and the classics in the field of separation, such as the rectangular drum.
We would like to thank you very much for your interest and are very pleased about the further - and also new - trustful cooperation.

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.
KUTENO 2021: Sucessfull kick-off of exhibition period
Finally getting a whiff of "trade fair air" again... At the regional plastics processing fair KUTENO 2021, we presented a cross-section of our wide range of conveyor technology, separating systems and automation for the plastics processing industry on our stand C22 in Hall 1.
In keeping with this year's focus on Circular Economy - recycling and sustainability - we presented a conveyor belt with metal detector and magnetic drive roller, which can be used, e.g. in mill feeding to protect the granulator and prevent contamination of the recyclate. This product met with great interest among the visitors.
Another big attraction were our bestsellers and further developments in the area of separation, such as the roller separator drum and the screw separators. Downstream parts separation is still a very topical subject with regard to the potential for increased productivity and cost savings.
We were very positively surprised by the high number of visitors and interested parties at the first German plastics presentation fair this year. Especially, we were pleased to finally meet our customers in person again and to exchange views on current topics. We are very much looking forward to the numerous new projects and challenges!
Coscollola successfully presented MTF Technik at EQUIPLAST
At this year's EQUIPLAST Barcelona, we presented several devices from the areas of conveying technology and separation. Our representative COSCOLLOLA COMERCIAL was positively surprised by the rather high number of visitors in view of the current situation. In particular, the rectangular drum for the separation of complex part geometries was of especially high interest to the visitors. Together with our partner COSCOLLOLA, we are pleased about the positive response and look forward to the upcoming projects.
New guidebook for challenges in conveying and parts separation
In our new "advisor" column, we address the most common challenges in the area of conveying and parts separation and present suitable applications and appropriate solutions in a guidebook.
The articles cover the topics of metal detection, static charging and high part temperatures.
Our advisor column is here: MTF Technik | Service | Advisor
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.
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.
