ELATECH Belts with profiles
It is possible to attach profiles on all ELATECH
and ELA-flex SD™
polyurethane belts for conveying, handling and positioning applications.
The cleats are produced in the same material of the belts in order to guarantee the maximum strenght. The belts with profiles allow a syncronised translation of the products at very high speeds and low noise.
A very wide range of profiles is available. If the required profile is not shown in our general catalogue, please contact with our technical office.
It is recommended to chose the pitch of the profile corresponding to the belt profile or multiple. This allows to minimize the effects of the belt overall length tolerance on profile spacing.
Profiles position may be over the tooth or not over the tooth. Belt Flexibility is maximised when the profiles are applied over the tooth.
The tolerance of position of the profiles is +/- 0,5 mm. If required it is possible to reduce the tolerance down to +/- 0,2 mm with an extra machining. During the welding process a bead of polyurethane of about 0,5-1 mm develops at the meeting point between the profile and the belt. Should it be necessary for the application, it is possible to remove it with a mechanical machining.
When ordering it is necessary to indicate: type of belt (width, profile, pitch, length), the belt length in number of teeth, the belt and profile drawing with the number and the pitch of the requested profiles
On demand it is possible to produce special belts with special machining both on the teeth and on the back of the belt.
