Supporting Cleanup Efforts When Flooding Hits: The Power of Suction Hoses and Discharge Hoses for PumpsAugust 30, 2023
Nearly everything we eat, wear, read, sit on, or ride in was at some point carried by a conveyor belt. However, not every conveyor belt is necessarily a standard flat belt. Many products need to be conveyed or handled in precise ways that require custom solutions. One such solution falls into the category we call custom covers.
Custom-covered belts are made to order and fit the exact specifications the application requires. These belts consist of two main components: the base belt and the covering, although some applications also call for additional modifications.
There are two general groups of base belts – standard conveyor belts and traditional power transmission belts. Standard conveyor belts can be laced, made endless, or supplied in bulk open-ended rolls.
Traditional power transmission belts consist of timing belts, V-belts, and poly ribbed (Poly-V) belts. Timing belts and V-belts can be made of urethane or rubber, whereas poly ribbed belts only use rubber.
Motion Conveyance Solutions offers custom coverings for flat belts, V-belts, and timing belts. Custom covers are highly effective in various applications, from vacuum systems to orienting and pulling product down the line. They can be laminated (glued) to the base belt or molded as a seamless belt.
Motion Conveyance Solutions can supply many different modifications, including hole-punching and perforation patterns. Whether you have a lightweight vacuum application or something heavy-duty such as filtration, dewatering, or elevator service – we have the experience and technology to supply the configuration you need.
Modification options include:
- Hole punching
- Grinding to precise thickness
- Machining grooves/slots
- Relief sipes
- Rolled edges
We specialize in small-quantity, unique solutions where no request is too minor. The result? An end product with the right properties to carry or cradle product as the application requires.
