Flat-Flex Compound and Aligned Belts

When applications require “special handling” of complex products, such as moving product up steep inclines or down sharp declines, maintaining product separation, minimizing points of contact, or keeping the product aligned in rows, you need a Specialty Belt from Wire Belt. These belts are custom-designed and manufactured to customers’ exact specifications for such diverse applications as: automotive brake pads, electronic circuit boards, chocolates, bagels, and snack foods.



Compound Belts

These belts incorporate specially-formed strands with raised sections called flights in pre-determined locations in the basic flat belt. These are typically used to help move product up an incline, down a decline, or to support, separate or minimize contact between products. The pattern of flights can be designed to create virtual “pockets” that totally isolate easily damaged products. Flights are available in four standard forms from 1/8" to 1" high/deep.

Aligned Belts

Aligned belts are used to convey products in specific rows. These belts utilize rows of flights to permit control and separation of delicate products to minimize damage and waste. In this configuration, all strands are formed in the same manner throughout the belt length. However, the number of rows and the spacing can be varied. The height of these product guides is available up to 1/2".
