High-end steel belts for the automotive industry

As a specialist for high-quality stainless steel belt processing, the Berndorf Band Group manufactures steel belts with an exceptionally long lifetime that are ideally suited for applications in the automotive industry. Our belts are used in demanding tire tests, complex wind tunnel analyses and comprehensive vehicle design processes.

The test systems used for these applications are composed of Berndorf’s extremely durable stainless steel belts, which can sustain speeds of up to 350 km/h. The special coating we apply to the belt surface allows operators to simulate a wide variety of conditions, allowing them, for instance, to precisely analyze the abrasion resistance of the tires. As an added benefit, the outstanding belt geometry provides for perfect operating characteristics.
