CONFECTION PROCESS synthetic

At LBS Conveyor Belts, we understand that every situation is unique and that the right conveyor belt is crucial for efficient material transport. That's why we offer a wide range of synthetic conveyor belts and accessories to perfectly fit your specific needs. Our expert staff ensures that each conveyor is custom made to order, adhering to the desired standards and guidelines for the food industry. In this blog, we take a closer look at the confectioning process and the various methods of making synthetic conveyor belts endless.

TAILOR-MADE CONFECTION

At LBS Conveyor Belts, we strive to meet each customer's specific requirements. Our synthetic conveyor belts are custom machined, where we cut the belt material to the correct length and width and fit accessories as required. Whether it's DIN standards, ISO standards or hygiene guidelines for the food industry, we make sure the conveyor belt meets your requirements.

ENDLESS CONVEYORS 

An essential part of the confectioning process is making the synthetic conveyor belt endless. To ensure that the conveyor belt can run continuously, the two ends must be joined together. To do this, we use different welding methods depending on the combination of the belt and the application.

  1. Finger weld: The most commonly used method is the finger weld. Here, the ends of the conveyor belt are welded together, leaving no height difference at the point of the weld. This method is ideal for situations that require quick exchange of conveyor belts and a reliable connection.

  2. Finger-lip-finger weld: In some cases, the finger-lip-finger weld may be the best solution. This welding method provides a solid connection between the ends of the conveyor belt, with the lips serving as additional reinforcement.

  3. Step weld: For conveyor belts with a thicker profile, the staircase weld may be a suitable option. In this welding method, the ends of the belt are cut at an angle and then pushed together, creating a strong joint.

  4. Chamfered weld: The beveled weld is ideal for conveyor belts that need to run at an angle. Here, the ends of the belt are cut at an angle and welded together, allowing the belt to move smoothly..

MECHNICAL BELT SPLICES

In addition to welding methods, we also offer mechanical belt connectors as an alternative option. These connectors, made of stainless steel, PVC or PU, can be used depending on the drum diameter and thickness of the belt. They offer flexibility and are useful in situations where speed and ease of conveyor replacement are required.
