Features and Benefits:
Vacuum Belts provide positive holding power to product
Frequently used in process applications, vacuum belts provide an excellent way of maintaining perfect control of sheet or film products during processing.
Polyurethane Body is ideal for timing belts being used a conveying belts
Polyurethane offers extremely good abrasion resistance, much better than traditional neoprene timing belts. Urethane also is resistant to most chemicals, water and oil making it well suited for tough industrial applications.
Steel or KEVLAR Reinforcement
Both steel and KEVLAR are ideal cords for many conveying applications. They both offer very low stretch which means that re-tensioning and other maintenance is not required. They are also dimensionally very stable under a wide variety of environmental conditions. Parts or products can be positioned repeatably and reliably.
Linear Placement of Cords
All cords in Mectrol’s linear belt are located in the belt parallel to the belt edges and exactly perpendicular to the belt teeth. As opposed to belts that are produced with a helically wound cord, these linear belts will exert little or no side force making them much easier to track. There are never exposed cords at the edge of the belt which can fray and contaminate product.
For vacuum applications, it is possible, under certain conditions, to extrude the belt with cord spacing that allows for placing the holes between cords so that the cords are not cut during perforation.
Proper selection of belt and pulleys can result in low or zero backlash in the belt and pulley system.
