In food processing, these belts are used in washing, baking, dewatering, blanching, cooking, freezing , pasteurizing and depalleting. In glass and ceramics, this construction finds wide use in firing, decorating, enameling and annealing, and for curing fiberglass. In electronics, we find glass-to-metal sealing, thick film firing, and drying of printed circuit boards. In metalworking, the range is from general conveying to heat-treating, quenching, calcining, annealing and related processes.
One of the factors that make metal wire mesh belts adaptable to so many applications is that it is available in many different materials. From sub-zero to 2200F, whatever the corrosive conditions may be, metal mesh belts may be woven of virtually all wrought alloys that can be drawn into wire form.
The standard edging for frictionally driven metal mesh belts is the welded selvage. For applications or belt constructions where weld are not desirable, a knuckled selvage may be used. A variation of the knuckled selvage, which provides a smooth outer edge as well as strength, is the ladder selvage. Other selvages can be produced to suit application needs.

BELTS FOR ELEVATED TEMPERATURE
Cambridge elevated temperature conveyor belts are truly special members of the metal belt family. Grueling application environments put these belts to the maximum test. These applications require the utmost in product design engineering of each weave in order to give you the most operational benefits and extended belt life.
Cambridge lehr belts have long been the choice of original equipment manufacturers. And, lehr operators have made Cambridge the choice for replacement belts. Their records show better performance for Cambridge belts. Performance is the proof of Cambridge’s superior design and construction.
