News from the area of drive technology

Innovation, responsibility, excellence

We know our capabilities and we know from experience that we haven't stopped learning. Only our constant endeavour to be at the forefront of innovation will ensure that we will continue to be the first and best contact for timing belt technology in the future. You can read about our current projects here: New products, ideas and application reports from the industry.

Mulco belt-pilot relaunch

The versatile online tool Mulco belt-pilot for calculating timing belt drives has received an extensive update. Find out what's new here.

Reducing electricity costs by 80 %

Everyone is talking about energy costs but the options for saving are limited. BRECOroll, an innovation by BRECO Antriebstechnik in the town of Porta Westfalica, gives the industry a way to significantly reduce energy consumption in plants that have long transport belt drives and to build smaller, lower-cost drive motors.

Safe transport of electronic components

Where electro-static charging should or has to be avoided e.g. when transporting electronic components or in drives and conveyor systems in highly flammable environments, anti-static CONTI® SYNCHROFLEX, BRECO® and BRECOFLEX® timing belts are a safe option.

Water jet cutting for timing belts: An extremely clean and precise cut

Efficient, quick and, above all, precise – BRECO director Dr. Thomas Steinert explains the innovative water jet cutting method for finishing polyurethane transport timing belts.

New timing belt backing for transporting hot products

Heat-resistant and durable:
The new backing material 4 mm aramid felt for BRECO® polyurethane timing belts can briefly withstand temperatures of up to 500°C. Read our news feature to discover notable features of its application.

New timing belt backings: Greater variety of adjustment options

BRECO Antriebstechnik now offers three new backings for PU conveyor timing belts: sponge rubber, foam rubber and Supergrip FDA blue. This represents yet another expansion of the already broad field of possible applications for the popular BRECO® timing belts. They are available Europe-wide through the partner network of Mulco-Europe EWIV. Application expertise and technical consultation is included.

New PU timing belt pitch AT8

The timing belt manufacturer BRECO Antriebstechnik, based in Porta Westfalica, Germany, is now making a new high-performance PU timing belt available Europe-wide through the sales partner network of Mulco-Europe EWIV. In addition to the AT10 and AT15 timing belt pitches, the BRECOFLEXmove AT8 is the first endless extruded PU timing belt with an 8 mm pitch available to engineers.

BRECOroll - more capacity, increased service life

BRECOroll is a newly developed polyurethane timing belt with integrated rolls in the belt teeth. Thus, in material transport systems the sliding friction between timing belt and support rail is reduced while the drive effectiveness and the service life of the timing belt is considerably increased.

Safely transport “overhead”

With immediate effect, sales partners of Mulco Europe EWIV are offering a new timing belt-pulley system for all material handling systems: BRECOvacuum. This innovative vacuum system enables “overhead” transportation of films, papers, glass panes or thin metal sheets in a safer and more efficient manner than with conventional vacuum timing belts made of polyurethane.
