Our Indu­stries

Broe­ke­ma sup­plies appli­ca­tions and com­po­nen­ts to various sec­tors, such as agri­cul­tu­re (inclu­ding turf extrac­tion and live­stock far­ming) and fishing. The food­stuffs, waste pro­ces­sing, and beach clea­ning indu­stries also use Broe­ke­ma technology. 

Crop Har­ve­sting

Broe­ke­ma has revo­lu­tio­ni­zed crop har­ve­sting by repla­cing the chains on har­ve­sters with rub­ber bel­ts. This redu­ces wear and tear, down­ti­me and helps to keep up the field yield becau­se of the fle­xi­bi­li­ty of our solu­tions (redu­cing the gap for smal­ler crops with the twin- or tri­ple­rod, using our hel­per­belt for brea­king bel­ts, or being able to quic­kly fix loo­se rods with our paten­ted pilot bolts).

Food pro­ces­sing

Pea­nu­ts have to be dug up from the dirt. This cau­ses tra­di­tio­nal chains to break. Our bel­ts work even bet­ter with a lit­tle dirt bet­ween them (it gives the rub­ber more trac­tion), so the­re is no dama­ge to the machi­ne and the yield is much higher. This is just one of the custom solu­tions we deve­lo­ped with a spe­ci­fic appli­ca­tion in mind. Curious what we can do for you? Con­tact us!

Broe­ke­ma inven­ted a machi­ne that gen­tly sha­kes the ripe oran­ges out of the tree, whi­le lea­ving the unri­pe fruit and blos­soms untou­ched and keeps the small ani­mals and rep­ti­les living in the orchards unhar­med. Good for natu­re and keeps the field yield up.

Brick fac­to­ry

A brick fac­to­ry drains off clay resi­due to reu­se. This pro­cess costs hun­dreds of thou­sands liters of water. By deve­lo­ping the most robu­st and hea­vy con­veyor bel­ts in Broekema’s histo­ry, this waste is in the past.

Beach clea­nup

Broekema’s beach clea­ners tidy hun­dreds of kilo­me­ters of beach from rub­bish that has been left by sun­ba­thers and has washed asho­re. This is great for the envi­ron­ment and the tou­rists appre­cia­te it as well.

Waste mana­ge­ment

How can we fit more paper trash in a truck? With a Broe­ke­ma belt that shif­ts and pres­ses the load whi­le col­lec­ting. This allo­ws to trans­port up to 40% addi­tio­nal waste, so less dri­ves and less CO2 emission.

Sin­ce Broe­ke­ma repla­ced the dri­ve chains with a low-noi­se belt on muni­ci­pal street swee­pers in Ita­ly the­re are no more noi­se com­plain­ts and the life­span went up.

Live­stock farming 

Our engi­neers came up with a belt to feed live­stock. The far­mers used very loud chain dri­ven bel­ts to pro­vi­de their cows with feed. The cows would get restless and becau­se of that the milk pro­duc­tion decrea­sed. After Broe­ke­ma instal­led our new, more quiet bel­ts, the cows were much cal­mer and the milk pro­duc­tion went up.
