Continental adds new Commercial Vehicle Drive Belts
Thursday, May 30, 2019
Technology company Continental is expanding its range of drive belts for the commercial vehicle aftermarket. More than 40 multi V-belts for the auxiliary drive have been added.
These new belts feature profile codes 4PK, 6PK, 8PK, 10 PK and 12PK, meaning they range from the narrow variant with four ribs to the widest with twelve. These are used, for example, in Mercedes-Benz, MAN and DAF buses and trucks. Continental’s new offering is aimed at independent commercial vehicle workshops, haulage companies with their own workshops and component wholesalers.
The new multi V-belts are made of fibre-reinforced synthetic rubber with a polyester tension member. Continental manufactures its drive belts for the aftermarket to the same quality standards as its original equipment products, which are specially designed to meet the requirements of modern commercial vehicles. That means workshops operating in the aftermarket can enjoy the same proven quality as original equipment.
Continental product manager Robert Franz says, “Mechanics can ensure the level of operational reliability in buses and trucks that millions of people rely on every day.” Continental also offers registered workshops a 5-year guarantee on the new products.
Further belts for Volvo, Scania, Renault and Iveco commercial vehicles are scheduled to be added to the range later in the year.
