In heating sections of corrugated board production, the moisture of the glue must be removed from the corrugated board quickly and in an energy-saving manner.The end product is pressed against a heated surface with belts.With the development of special process belts in 2009, GKD created a much more reliable alternative to the felt belt that had been used until then: the open fabric structure of GKD belts has since then ensured uniform evaporation at significantly higher production speeds.The uniform residual moisture ensures optimum flatness of the sheets. In addition, bronze threads are woven into the polyester fabric to safely and reliably discharge the loads that arise from the material conveyed. Electrostatic charges are thus prevented.
