Conveyor Belts

Belts used for conveyor systems are a product category used in many sectors, and as their internal structure is composed of fabric they can be used with significantly smaller pitch diameters compared to timing belts.
By customising the rear of the belts with attachments, coatings and other machining processes, it is possible to create conveyor systems which perfectly adapt to the type of product to be handled.
The sectors which use special belts for product transport are: industrial automation, packaging, paper, fabrics, non-woven fabrics, food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, medical, etc.
Synchronous Belts

Synchronous belts are innovative systems which combine the advantages of timing belts (positioning precision and constant length) with the characteristics of smooth belts (flexibility and large widths).
They are made by milling grooves on the rear of polyurethane belts and welding one or more timing belts (Kevlar cable), the strands in this system guarantee a constant length over time and allow the use of pulleys for timing belts both on the drive and idle shaft.

They can be manufactured with a maximum width of 1000 mm, and the types of teeth which can be applied to the belts are T10, T5, H, HTD, 8M, STD, 8M.

By making perforations in the inner part they can become excellent systems for vacuum transportation, and as the lower part of the belt is made from a low-friction material, the power required to drive the conveyor system is significantly reduced.

Attachments, Side Edges and Central Guides

It is possible to apply attachments of any shape to the rear of the belt, and if required also side containment profiles to prevent the transported product from falling out at the sides.

When FDA approval is required, belts can be manufactured from food-safe polyurethane, and it is possible to weld attachments in certified materials to the rear.

When transverse forces or movement on a slope are present, it is possible to apply a central guide of trapezoidal shape K6, K10 and K13 to the inner rear of the belt.


Standard belts offer different solutions in terms of the surface which comes into contact with the product (high, medium and low friction), but in many cases different characteristics are required and it is therefore possible to apply dense or foam coatings.

There is a wide range of materials which can be used to coat belts, and like for the timing belts it is possible to use rubbers, polyurethanes and silicones which we can recommend by analysing the specifics of your application.

The use of foam coatings is suggested in cases where high deformability of the surface in contact with the product is required, and the most widely used materials for this type of solution are: Sylomer, neoprene and foam rubber.
In order to protect the foam and to increase the grip of the system, it is possible to apply a further, denser coating which is usually in silicone or rubber.

1 – Welding two timing belts underneath a belt creates a reliable synchronised system

2 – The timing belt attached to the belt ensures that no lengthening occurs over time

3 – The lower fabric of the belt significantly reduces the friction generated by the vacuum

4 – Synchronous belt in silicone with T10 timing belts is ideal for achieving a high level of grip

5 – Synchronous belts can be manufactured in FDA-approved materials

6 – Synchronous belt with very tight perforation surface for transport in the non-woven fabrics sector

7 – Applying side profiles to the edges of the belt achieves containment of the transported products

8 – Belt with FDA-approved central guide and polyurethane attachments

9 – Conveyor belt for containers, used in the cosmetics industry

10 – Belt with Tenax coating, hardness 45 shore, for PACKAGING machine

11 – Coating in green sylomer with 1 mm extra thickness of 30 shore silicone

12 – Belts coated in sylomer with 30 shore silicone spread over and ground

13 – By applying a central profile it is possible to keep the belt guided on its axis

14 – Perforated belt in FDA-approved PU with machining for suction of products in the food sector

15 – Polyamide belts are ideal for the movement of rollers on conveyors

16 – Perforated belt for vacuum system used in the paper sector
