We understand that the glass processing industry has some very exacting requirements in terms of processing when it comes to the use of conveying belts.
PBO conveyor belting
Our PBO range of conveyor belts and wear pad materials are capable of working in high temperature conditions. Subject to...
Marathon manufactures and supplies a wide range of technical textile fabrics and belts, which are made from a number of materials, not just high temperature fibres. If you don’t require a high temperature solution, there are other options to consider.
Have a lower temperature application?
There are many that believe that high temperature textile belts have much more to offer manufacturers of delicate glass articles in relation to helping them become more profitable and efficient.
Reduced level of defects, increased yield, reduced waste
Firstly, given their low thermal shock characteristics and softer contact...
Technical textile fabrics and belting, capable of withstanding extreme temperatures, are being used to process fragile glass articles in the glass industry. But why have they become so popular for processing delicate glass components and how do they compare with a metal conveyor system?
The fact is high...
When hot, delicate glass or crystal items are formed then loaded on to a metal or wire belt, operating at ambient or close to ambient temperatures, thermal shock can occur.
Thermal shock can cause checking, defects and even breakages
This can be a real problem causing production runs...
Working with any new (or different) textile belting or material is bound to cause a degree of concern or doubt. But that doesn’t mean that a change isn’t worth the effort if new materials can help production staff to improve product quality, reduce the incidence of rejects...
Most production environments require long-life belts. This alleviates supply issues, minimises replacement costs and is less disruptive to manufacturing routines. Marathon products are designed to respond to these demands and offer peace of mind.
Proven to work, over time
Subject to the specific application, a textile conveyor...
When you change supplier, or opt to buy new textile belting or materials, we completely understand that some glass/crystal manufacturers will be apprehensive about the product, technical compatibility, the range of services and support provided, and things like costs over time.
Marathon Belting is one business known...
The technical team at Marathon are aware about the exacting requirements of supplying high temperature textile products and conveyor belts to the glass industry. That is why they have developed a range of textile materials in various widths and thicknesses, in response to the market requirements.
Over the years the use of steel conveyor belts for processing delicate glass articles such as tableware, cosmetic bottles and light bulbs has been challenged by new, improved higher temperature woven textile fabrics. But are they as cost effective, durable and reliable in practice? Marathon summarise the benefits of...
