Quality products Made in Germany
Muhlen Sohn is a 135-year-old company from Germany. The corrugator belts of the technology leader are suitable for all machines and are used especially in the heating and tracking sections of a corrugator. Belts from Muhlen Sohn are made of tear-resistant and heat-resistant fibers and enable a long durability, excellent moisture control and maximum flexibility. The firm belt material guarantees a surface shaped distribution of contact pressure. This in turn ensures a uniform bonding and quick drying of corrugated cardboard and less wear of heating plates. Compared to felt belts Muhlen Sohn’s woven belts absorb the moisture better and especially help to achieve drier edges of the cardboard. Thus, using the Muhlen Sohn belts is more economical for the manufacturer thanks to less edge waste. Muhlen Sohn belts reduce edge waste by up to 50%.
