Dear reader,

after the record hot summer everyone is hopefully coming back from vacation to work full of new energy.

In this issue you will find interesting information about a timing belt joining method which minimizes downtimes: the mechanical Pin Joint.

Since some years ago Habasit AB is producing super wide modular belts to a specific customer. Read about the challenges we faced on page 5 and 6.

Almost all printed textiles are printed on a so-called printing blanket. – Similar to conveyor belts but with very specific and challenging demands. Read about the Habasit role in the rapidly growing and changing textile printing industry sector.

Tuff Tread is a treadmill producer using Habasit belts. Read about them and the different unusual customer requirements they are facing on page 8 and 9.

On page 10 and 11 you can read about two Habasit production units with very different capabilities: Vigliano with it’s super efficient production lines for high volume conveyor belts and Bingley, configured for production of niche products in low volumes and flexibility without loss of efficiency.

At last find yourself reading about our team behind the product samples at page 12.
