Features and Benefits:
Welded Timing Belts are available in virtually any length
Especially useful for conveying applications, welded timing belts can be made to nearly any possible length with out requiring an additional mold. Normal timing belts are only available in a limited number of sizes and are generally not longer than 12 feet. Mectrol welded belts have the strongest joint of any urethane timing belt company. These welds are normally strong enough for the toughest conveying applications.
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. Urethane is also an ideal material to work with for custom fabrication. Surfaces can be ground to tight tolerances, profiles can easily be thermally bonded, backings can be added and holes can be added.
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 no exposed cords at the edge of the belt which can fray and contaminate product.
Proper selection of belt and pulleys can result in low or zero backlash in the belt and pulley system.
