Beschreibung

The increasing demand of raw materials leads to longer conveyor belt systems with higher mass flows all over the world.  Due to logistic reasons, conveyor belts are produced in segments to guarantee manageability. The different segments are spliced at  the  conveyor  system  to  form  an  endless  belt,  which  can  amount  up  to  multiple kilometres. This process shows a high level of optimization potential since currently the different work steps are performed manually. An automation of this process can minimize the downtime of the conveyor system and improve the splice quality. In  this  study,  a  suitable  preparation  process  is  evaluated  to  automate  the  stripping process,  where  the  rubber  has  to  be  removed  from  the  steel  cords.  Therefore, the application of water jetting and laser processing is investigated.
