Costacurta S.p.A.-VICO is an Italian company specialized in the design and manufacture of metal components for industry and architecture, serving markets worldwide.
Costacurta has gained consolidated experience in the design engineering and manufacturing of metal conveyor belts for heat shrink packaging for applications that require temperatures ranging from approx. -150°C to +1.150°C. The conveyor belts are used in numerous industrial processes and sectors, from metallurgical engineering, to pharmaceuticals to food processing.
Heat shrink packaging is a type of packaging used to wrap together products that are typically of equal , such as stationery items, cosmetics, bottles and food products.
The products to be packaged are covered with a shrink wrap film and passed through a packing machine equipped with a continuous oven and an extractor fan for cooling. The heat produced bythe oven shrinks the film by up to 50% of its original , therefore allowing it to adhere perfectly to the product. Once the wrapped product has cooled, the film maintains its new shape.
The products are moved inside the continuous oven and under the aspiration hood for cooling on metal conveyor belts.
Costacurta conveyor belts for shrink wrap packaging are made with high-quality materials in order to resist the temperatures inside the oven and are d so that they can support the load to be conveyed. The surfaces of the belts are also uniform in order to keep the products stable and in the desired position.
As well as guaranteeing a high-quality product, Costacurta provides technicians and engineers to assist clients in the selection of the most suitable type of belt for their shrink wrap packaging lines.
Costacurta can help its customers select the right type of conveyor belt – thanks to specific calculation programs validated by wide experience in supplying and materials – on the basis of operating conditions, and the shape, and weight of the products to be conveyed.
Their are also qualified suppliers of leading international companies that are involved in developing technology and providing engineering services and equipment for oil & gas, petrochemical and chemical industries.
Furthermore, their offer supervision during installation and assist our clients in the development of new products.
