55 YEARS OF PATENTED KNOW-HOW

Belt drums made in Germany by Doppstadt – This division possesses tried-and-tested patented know-how gained through 55 years of experience. We are very proud of this anniversary, and even more so of the patent: It proves our role as a pioneer in this field and the outstanding services that our factory in Calbe/ Saale performs and delivers on a daily basis: the design and production of customer-specific solutions.

With the acquisition of Förderanlagen Calbe GmbH and the assumption of its staff with their unprecedented expertise, we simultaneously acquired patented know-how in the field of conveyor technology in the 1990s. The decision at that time to keep all of the company’s employees laid the foundation for the relationship between the staff and the company’s management to this day. Without this positive collaborative spirit, the outstanding quality of products and good workmanship, we would not be one of the world’s leading manufacturer of customer-specific belt drums for large conveyor systems.

With 55 years of experience, we have been demonstrating German engineering on a daily basis by producing customized belt drums in Calbe in accordance with a standardized and proven quality concept, tailored to the field of application, customer requirements and system conditions. The development and production of belt drums for heavy-duty belt conveyors is based on a patent that is rich in history: The patent 1 450 059 was granted in 1964. And yet, we have never stopped investing in innovative manufacturing technologies or using state-of-the-art technology for our production processes. Every belt drum is manufactured and certified individually. Almost all components come from our own production or from internationally recognized suppliers – from development and design through to production. This is the only way for us to fulfill our quality standards over the entire manufacturing process. Special quality characteristics: high load capacity and long service life of our belt drums. And our customers currently spanning more than 25 countries worldwide appreciate that.
