What are the maximum dimensions (thickness, length, and width) for metal belts that Belt Technologies can provide?
Belt Technologies can produce stainless steel belts between 0.001” to 0.035” thick. There is no limit for belt length. Width can vary anywhere between 0.040” and 35” or more, as required by customer designs. These dimensions apply to all belt types, including coated metal belts, perforated belts, heat sealing belts, and vacuum conveyor belts.
What is the maximum number of cycles for stainless steel conveyor belts?
Although belt lifespan is largely determined by ratio of pulley diameter to belt thickness, stress and belt design are also significant factors that need to be considered. Our Sales Engineers have assisted our customers with many applications with belt life cycles into the millions.
