Fenner Drives® to Debut Eagle Poly-V™ Belts at Modex 2020
Manheim, PA, USA – March 2, 2020. Fenner Drives introduces the Eagle Poly-V line of belts, featuring PJ-profile belts designed specifically for roller conveyor applications. The Eagle Poly-V Belts, along with the rest of the Fenner Drives product line, will be showcased at Modex 2020 held at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center March 9-12, 2020.
Uniquely manufactured using a combination of polyurethane with elastic reinforcement, Eagle Poly-V belts provide the same load capacity as conventional rubber belts but with a number of added benefits. According to Tyson Gabler, Director of Product Management-Belting, “Eagle Poly-V belts are the latest innovation from Fenner Drives using high performance polyurethane materials to improve performance and efficiency in conveying and material handling applications. As a leading manufacturer of polyurethane belting, we have leveraged years of application knowledge and experience to create this new range of superior performing Poly-V belts for roller conveyors. And our global footprint means product, sales and support is available worldwide for customers looking to take advantage of this unique solution."
The revolutionary new Eagle Poly-V belts, which are available in stock for immediate delivery, offer manufacturers less downtime, added efficiency and cost savings. Compared to their conventional alternatives, Eagle Poly-V belts boast a longer belt life with increased performance in curves, reduced belt fatigue and lower required running tension. Additionally, their elastic reinforcement promotes self-tensioning, resulting in consistently enhanced belt performance.
After several months of successful use in a real-life manufacturing setting, Eagle Poly-V belts showed no degradation or signs of wear, even during peak production season.
