Leading Manufacturer of Conveyor and Elevator Rubber Belts
Founded in Milan in 1945, SIG Società Italiana Gomma SpA developed into a recognized producer of rubber belts and technical rubber products during the following decades. In 1968, the company moved their production facility to Gorla Minore, some 70 km north of Milan, where it now has a production area of some 12 000 m² with ten manufacturing lines including calanders and vulcanizing presses for textile and steel carcass rubber conveyor and elevator belts of up to 2200 mm width.
Part of the production facility is reserved for the research and development laboratory, which, in the last years, has planned and realized innovative and original products suitable for specific industrial fields. This has been possible due to its modern and technologically advanced machinery, able to thoroughly test final products and raw materials such as compounds, synthetic fabrics and steel cords. Together with the experience and technical know-how of its staff this has made SIG one of the leading belt suppliers in the world.
Being one of the first Italian companies to diversify in international markets SIG SpA became active in the whole of Europe, Latin America, North Africa, the Middle East and, today, in Asia and Australia as well. Due to its international trait, the company improved its production with technologically advanced production lines. Today, SIG SpA is Lloyds registered and certified to UNI EN ISO 9001:2008.
Steel and textile carcass rubber conveyor and elevator belts for cement, mining, steel and chemical plants as well as for all the industrial fields, which need materials to be conveyed, are the main products in SIG’s manufacturing range. The rubber covers for conveyor belts can be tailored for abrasion resistance, product temperature up to 200 °C, oil, fat and chemical resistance and to be self extinguishing and/or antistatic acc. to ISO 340 and ISO 284.
Besides belts for standard applications with textile or steel carcass (TEXTER and SIDERFLEX) SIG’s range of belts encompasses belts for high inclination uses (SPINATEX AND FLEXOBORD) and specially tailored carcasses (ARABELT, PIPEX/PIFLEX, SLIDEM, RIPSAVE and TEXTBIND) as well as for bucket elevators with textile or steel carcass (ELETEX or ELEMET) which can be punched acc. to customer instructions.
