Voith Introduces New Coupling Generation for Intelligent Driving of Belt Conveyor Systems

Voith introduces TurboBelt 500 TPXL:

• Situation-based control with an intelligent controller
• Plug-and-play design enables easy installation
• Space-saving through high power density

Crailsheim, Germany, October 25, 2016Voith recently unveiled its new TurboBelt 500 TPXL fluid coupling at MINExpo in Las Vegas, USA. The fill-controlled coupling is the first model in the new TPXL family, which combines the advantages of the proven hydrodynamic drive principle with intelligent control technology. The integrated controller makes it possible to adapt the output torque of the coupling exactly to the startup parameters of the belt conveyor system. In addition, Voith’s engineers have been able to considerably reduce the dimensions of the new coupling, so that the TurboBelt 500 TPXL only requires half the volume of conventional coupling types for the same force transmission. In addition to the operational advantages, the new series of couplings also offers attractive procurement and operating costs.
