Timing Belts
with cleats

Over the last few years, the types of packaging present on the market have increased exponentially, and with them the need for attachments with very specific shapes: our extensive experience in this area allows us to offer attachments of any geometry. timing belts with cleats are used on very fast and precise conveyor systems, finding use primarily in the sectors of automatic machinery, packaging and industrial automation.
Polyurethane attachments with metal inserts

The thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) attachments are applied to the timing belt and can be welded on the back in any position, allowing the customer to choose the attachment spacing position (unlike for belts with false teeth it does not have to be a multiple of the tooth pitch used).

Usually the geometries to be created are made through mechanical machining, but in cases where the quantity of attachments is very high we can produce a mould in order to optimise the manufacturing costs

This production process also offers the significant advantage that metal parts can be inserted within the polyurethane in order to reduce the consumption in the area in contact with the transported product or, where required, be used to anchor other components (magnets, threaded rods, inserts with threaded holes …)

Dovetail Attachments

Timing belts used in conveyors are often subjected to high levels of acceleration, and the specific weight of the polyurethane often does not allow the required geometry to be created because the result would be an excessively heavy attachment. By welding a dovetail attachment to the back of the belt, it is possible to make an interference fit of another attachment in a lighter material (e.g. glass-fibre reinforced plastic, carbon-fibre …).

Attachments with Brushes

When transporting fragile objects it is not possible to use rigid attachments because this would run the risk of damaging the integrity of the product. By producing perforated attachments it is possible to insert brushes in order to create a soft back to the belt where the objects can fall and be transported with no risk.

1 – timing belts with cleats are used in the packaging sector and in automation

2 – The AT pitches are the most widely used as they guarantee precise positioning

3 – In order to facilitate changing of timing belts they can be supplied with pin joint

4 – Timing belt for the transport of lipsticks in the cosmetics sector

5 – Attachment with geometry used for transport of chocolate eggs in the packaging sector

6 – The metal part of the attachment reduces early wear of the box transport system

7 – Spring steel plates are inserted in the attachments in order to make them thinner and more rigid

8 – Timing belt, width 500 pitch T10 mm with rectangular cleats on rear

9 – Belt with central channel and attachment with threaded hole for vacuum suction cup fastening

10 – It is possible to screw on suction cups to create a vacuum on attachments with metal core

11 – Moulded attachment; a mechanical system is installed on the steel pins

12 – A magnet inserted inside the attachment improves adhesion with metal products

13 – The dovetail geometry allows interference fitting of lighter attachments

14 – The Delrin attachment attached by interference fit is mechanically locked in place with screws

15 – By inserting brushes on the attachments, a conveyor system for delicate products is created

16 – Belt with lateral brushes used in the pharmaceutical sector for packaging of pills

17 – Different colour attachments to identify the position in the format change

18 – Timing belt with polyurethane attachments with central area in neoprene foam

19 – By independently managing the two timing belts, it is possible to vary the distance of the attachments

20 – This type of attachment is used for forming of packaging in the beverage sector
