Round Woven Wire Belting
Our balanced weave belt consists of a series of alternating single left-hand and right-hand spirals joined together by a straight or crimped cross-rod connector. With its virtually unlimited choice of mesh selection, it has many advantageous characteristics that make it the most preferred construction for almost any application. It offers a high tensile strength, excellent tracking and maximum flexibility that allows for true belt travel. It is adaptable with several different edge treatments and special attachments. Please know that various configurations are always available upon request. We'll look forward to responding to your specific, individual requirements.
Double Balanced Weave
Our double balanced weave belts consist of a series of alternating double left-hand and right-hand spirals joined together by a straight or crimped cross-rod connector. In this weave the spirals are lapped to form a closed loop. The rods are welded to the left-hand spirals, creating a "strut," which makes this weave more resistant to camber. This type of weave is ideal for carrying heavy loads at elevated temperatures.
Compound Balanced Weave
Our compound balanced weave belts consist of a series of alternating left-hand and right-hand spirals fastened by a straight cross-rod connector that passes through multiple spirals collapsed together. The close nesting of the spirals makes this belt ideal for carrying very small parts, such as nuts, bolts, screws, nails, etc.
Rod Reinforced Weave
Our rod reinforced weave belt consists of single directional spirals inter-woven into the preceding spirals. The spirals are "reinforced" by the insertion of a straight or "U" cross-rod connector inserted through its vertices. This construction produces a very high tensile strength to weight ratio, with very low thermal retention. It allows for full loading capacities and minimal stretch at extremely high operating temperatures.
Double Rod Reinforced Weave
The double rod reinforced weave belt is an assembly of paired spirals, inter-woven into the preceding pair. The spirals are reinforced by a straight cross-rod connector passing through its vertices. Like the double balanced weave, the double rod-reinforced weave consists of "struts", making it more resistant to camber. Its greater tensile strength makes this belt ideal for carrying heavier loads.
The conventional weave consists of single directional spirals inter-woven into the preceding spirals, without any cross-rods. This weave is an economical weave and it can be made with either very large or small openings. This weave is frequently used for chain drive belting, and is commonly used for guards on machinery, or as a protective barrier.
Gratex (Improved Balance) Weave
Our gratex weave belt consists of a series of alternating single left-hand and right-hand spirals joined together by straight cross-rod connectors. While similar to the balanced weave, the gratex weave is a closely woven mesh which makes it ideal for heavy load conveying applications.
Flattened Wire Weave
This type of wire belting is actually an assembly of spirals which are made of round wire that has been flattened into an elliptical shape to provide a flatter belt surface. This wire can be made into virtually any weave to create a very flat belt in order to reduce the amount of initial belt stretch which occurs with all round wire belting. It creates a smooth, flat carrying surface giving greater support to irregularly shaped parts.
