Conveyor belts

BeltingSkill offers the widest available range of conveyor belts consisting of hundreds of models with different tensile strength classes, sliding surfaces, surface textures and colors. The materials and characteristics of BeltingSkill conveyor and process belts are selected to meet a wide range of requirements for the most different industrial applications, such as resistance to wear, to chemicals, to high or low temperatures , to the sanitation needs typical of certain industries.

If the belt has the simple function of moving the products along the line while maintaining their characteristics unaltered, it is defined as a “conveyor belt”. If on the contrary, thanks to its characteristics, it contributes to their transformation during the work cycle on the conveyor, it is defined as a “process belt”. Typical examples of process tapes are tapes for printing on fabrics and pre-press tapes in the production of wood panels.

Design of conveyors

The conveyor and process belts are made up of one or more synthetic fabrics coupled together, which guarantee the necessary tensile strength, and a top cover on which the products to be handled and / or processed will be positioned. The coupling of the fabrics is carried out through the use of suitable interlayers of thermoplastic material. The material, thickness and surface type of the transport side depend on the function of the belt.

The transport side covers are mainly made of thermoplastic materials, such as TPU, TPO, PVC etc., and elastomeric type rubbers, such as NBR, PUR etc., or they can be made up of a fabric cover. The sliding side is instead mainly made up of a fabric, usually impregnated with a thermoplastic material or a wear-resistant PUR, which provides a low and constant coefficient of friction.

Surface

A well-designed belt surface has the dual function of both safe product transportation and facilitating the industrial process in which the belt is used. Careful selection is essential to find the right belt for each conveyor or process application.

For more information see the surface selection table.

Material

A wide range of different polymeric materials, both thermoplastic and elastomeric (rubbers), guarantee all the characteristics required for specific applications. To learn more, please refer to our materials pages.

Types of fabric

The strength of each belt is determined by its fabric construction and composition. The fabric is usually inserted between layers of polymeric material (thermoplastic or elastomers) that protect it from external factors, such as moisture, light and contamination. Fabric also increases the belt’s mechanical properties, preventing damage, caused by wear. The fabric provides longitudinal strength and flexibility, that are especially important in the presence of small pulleys and knife edge applications.

Belt joining

Our conveyor belts start off from a slab, that is then cut to the desired length and width, depending on the Customer specifications. At this point, the piece of belt is ready to be endlessly spliced, through the use of adhesive or through our proprietary bonding method, depending on materials and application.

Special conveyors

Pelosi makes curved conveyor belts, suitable for installation on any type of curved conveyor.
Our innovative CAD / CAM cutting system allows us to make high-precision cuts in belts, without any limits on external radius or curvature. Our wide range of curved conveyor belts and custom fabrication allows us to meet all of our Customers’ applications, including baggage handling and airport logistics.

 

Upon request, our curved belts can be equipped with:

PERFORATIONS | BUTTONS | EYELETS

Customization conveyors belt

Pelosi manufactures cleats, V-guides and sidewalls of specially formulated PVC and PU compounds, in a range of different Shore A hardness, and various levels of abrasion- and oil-resistance. The accessory compounds match perfectly those of the conveyor belts, in order to guarantee optimal adhesion, through vulcanization and other fabrication systems
