plastic modular belts

Plate link belts are very robust, positive chain driven belts for medium to heavy duty applications. Fformed from a series of castellated plates rolled to form hinges, linked with cross rods which pass through the hinge points and side chain.

They are suitable for harsh and arduous applications found in many engineering processes such as die-casting, presswork, scrap removal, component handling, swarf and chip removal, heat treatment, low temperature ovens, cooling, drying and recycling.

Plate Link Belts are constructed in a range of materials including hot and cold rolled mild steel, pre galvanised mild steel and stainless steel. Slats can also be treated after manufacture using surface finishes including galvanising, bright zinc plating and Teflon coating for your custom application.

Belts are supplied in standard pitches from 1.25” to 9” and 40 mm to 160 mm, with thicknesses ranging from 1.5 mm to 6 mm

A variety of side chains are fitted, depending on application, including 3,000 lb. loose link to 24,000 lb. hollow bearing pin chain. The side chains are retained either with a split pin and washer arrangement, which permits simple dismantling for maintenance purposes, or a welded washer.

If our extensive standard range of belts do not meet your exact requirements, please contact our Technical Department, as special pitches can be manufactured to match your needs.
