UPM Celebrates 35 Years at NPE

February 26
09:54 2012

UPM claims to be the longest serving supplier of ancillary equipment to the world’s plastic industry having participated in the NPE show for the past 35 years. The emphasis this year is on exhibiting Dynacon Belt Conveyors at booth 1873 with Dynamic Conveyor highlighting the modular conveyor system that lengthens; shortens; adapts and changes as your need requires.

UPM has a global agreement with Global Closure Systems (GCS), which incorporates Zeller Plastik, Massmould and UCP, who have taken delivery of their 700th Dynacon Belt Conveyor in the UK, based on the versatility available from using standard bolt together injection moulded filled polycarbonate components to allow any shape to be produced in any configuration plus zero maintenance as the belt is guided in channels either side eliminating the need to track or tension.

UPM Conveyors has extended the Dynacon principle to their own Syscon range, which is machined from High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (HMWPE) and for which UPM was awarded the Queens Award for Innovation, being FDA approved for food contact and high care/hygiene applications plus being robust for heavy duty systems. UPM has in-house facilities for all aspects of manufacture including programming and control build allowing complete control of quality/inspection and maintaining delivery promises.
