SPLICING

Endless - Vulcanized

Endless - Vulcanized
A hot-vulcanized splice is stronger and more sanitary than a mechanical (laced) joint. Endless splicing eliminates fastener pull out and tearing of the belt. Ideal for food processing industries and where metal lacing could possibly mar the product.

Finger Splice

Finger Splice
A proven heavy-duty splice for thermoplastic belting utilizing polyurethane as the bonding agent. Lap area is the same thickness as the belt and uniformly smooth. H.D. urethane finger splice available for PVC and urethane belts over 200 PIW.

Endless - Prepared

Endless - Prepared
Belts are supplied with laps already prepared to desired length but not vulcanized, enabling customer to splice endless on the system. Hot or cold cements with instructions are available.

Multiple Finger Splice

Multiple Finger Splice
Similar to the single Finger Splice. Staggered die cut fingers are vulcanized together to create a strong, extremely flexible splice.


MECHANICAL FASTENERS

Lacing - Standard

Lacing - Standard
Types: Alligator, Clipper, Flexco, Minet and others. Mechanical fastener joints with hinge pins provide an easy, quick and secure method of joining belt ends. Avoid lacing problems by utilizing our factory lacing experts.

Thermoplastic Soft Splice

Thermoplastic Soft Splice
This custom splice incorporates vulcanized hidden lacing that derives extra strength from square-cut interlocking fingers. Two flexible connecting pins secure the joint and produce a very consistent thickness at the seam. Soft Splices are applied to thermoplastic PVC and PU material.

Spiral Lace

Spiral Lace
Ideal non-metallic mechanical splice for small-pulley, low-profile applications. Unique hinge design allows use on pulleys and nose bars as small as 5/8" diameter and as thick as 3/16". Resists corrosion and heat. Lace is installed in factory by insertion between belt plies.

Covered (Hidden) Lace

Covered (Hidden) Lace
Lacing is hidden by the cover of the belt to allow the ease of installation provided by a mechanical splice with the smooth operation of an endless belt. Product is protected from marring from the mechanical splice area. Splice can be covered with rubber or abrasion-resistant urethane. If the belt is to be cleaned by a scraper, a hidden top splice is effective. When lacing is completely hidden by top and bottom covers, both the product and the conveyor are protected.

Overlap Lace

Overlap Lace
Top cover of belt is skived back and mechanical fastener installed. The over-lap is spliced back over the splice area, providing a smooth conveying surface. Product being conveyed is protected from marring by the fastener. Flap must be glued down at installation.

Recessed Lace

Recessed Lace
Mechanical splice area of belt is recessed below the level of the belt cover. The recessed lace keeps the product being conveyed from coming in contact with the lacing.

Plastic Rivet Fasteners

Plastic Rivet Fasteners
Come in white and black, non-metallic compounds for a variety of conveying situations. Fasteners feature beveled edges and counter-sunk pockets in bottom of fastener to protect rivets. Fasteners are either installed by the factory or in the field with special tools.


LONGITUDINAL SPLICING

Longitudinal Splicing

Longitudinal Splicing
For extra-wide belt requirements, belts can be made endless, V-Guided, and/or flanged. Any width is attainable by using multiple splices. Longitudinal splices can be made in a variety of compounds, including woven PVC, thermoplastic, roughtops, urethane covered, and black rubber in all thicknesses.


SPECIALTY BELTS

Sizing Belts

Sizing Belts
Holes of various diameters can be punched in the belt to allow items below a certain size to fall through. These kinds of belts are common in the agricultural industry where they are used to size fruits and vegetables.

Solid Waste Disposal Belts

Every large roofing contractor has one or more portable conveyors which they haul to the new building job site and use to convey roofing materials — both bulk and bagged — up steep inclines. These belts generally feature notched chevron cleats up to 2" tall.

Scrap Metal Belt

Scrap Metal Belt
Every scrap metal yard has one or more scrap metal conveyors. This severe application requires heavy duty belt and cleats to withstand the cutting, gouging and abrasion of the scrap metal. Rubber chevron cleats as well as rubber or urethane cross cleats are recommended.

Die Stamping Belts

Die Stamping Belts
High quality belts for this brutal application. Urethane cover of belt is repeatedly cut into by the die cutter. The special construction "heals" itself, increasing the life of the belt.

Exciter/Activator Belts

Exciter/Activator Belts
Also known as "ripple belt" pads, these pads can be made any length, thickness and width required. As the belt and pads travel underneath the carrier idlers, the pads contact the rollers and drive them, propelling a unit load forward. Available in rubber or in low durometer urethane.

Urethane Cleated Belts for Small Pulleys and Nose Bars

Urethane Cleated Belts for Small Pulleys and Nose Bars
Fabricated belt for applications requiring a cleated belt that must operate on very small pulleys. Urethane belts and cleats are resistant to abrasion. Cleats are welded into the belt to ensure superior adhesion.
