Besides the ZS / ZSi timing belt joint, the range of mechanical connections has been extended by the PinJoin timing belt joint.
The timing belt joint ZS / ZSi is designed to allow repeated detaching and joining of timing belts in the plant itself.
Both versions are offered in stainless steel as standard for AT10 and H profiles. This connection can therefore be used in the food and pharmaceutical industry in combination with suitable timing belts. For the T10 profile, the tooth side inserts are made of brass, which is not suitable for application in the food and pharmaceutical industry.
The back plates are connected with the inserts on the toothed side using bolts that are screwed on through the belt. In the ZSi version, the top surface of the belt is 1 mm higher so that the back plates are embedded inside the timing belt and finish flush with the height of the top surface of the belt.
The standard widths for belt joints in profiles AT10 and T10 are: 25; 32 and 50 mm, and
in the H profile: 25.4 , 38.1 and 50.8 mm.
Further intermediate widths, and widths exceeding 50 mm, are available on request.
The PinJoin timing belt joint is designed for joining belts with a one-off, permanent joint in the plant itself.
The connection is made with stainless steel threaded pins that fit into laterally drilled holes running longitudinally through the tooth. This connection can therefore be used in the food and pharmaceutical industry in combination with suitable timing belts.
The PinJoin connection is also suitable for connecting coated belts . In the area of the joint, however, the coating is positioned flush face to face.
The standard widths for belt joints for T10 & AT10 profiles are: 25 , 32 and 50 mm.
Additional profiles, intermediate widths and widths exceeding 50 mm are available on request.
