optibelt ALPHA LINEAR

Timing belts - open-ended, extruded polyurethane

optibelt ALPHA LINEAR Zahnriemen – endlich extrudiert, Polyurethan   optibelt ALPHA LINEAR Zahnriemen – endlich extrudiert, Polyurethan

 

Open-ended optibelt ALPHA LINEAR Open-ended optibelt ALPHA LINEAR timing belts are made of extruded, thermoplastic polyurethane with tension cords parallel to the edges. The belts are dimensionally stable and their precise positioning makes them ideal for use in linear drive systems. 

It is also possible to apply transparent polyurethane (with a hardness of 85 Shore A), T2, yellow PU foam or other materials directly to the belt in an additional downstream extrusion process.

The optibelt ALPHA LINEAR timing belt can also be given a thin fabric covering on the tooth side in order to reduce friction and noise. Fabric can also be applied to the belt back.

optibelt ALPHA V

Timing belts – endless, welded polyurethane

optibelt ALPHA V Zahnriemen – endlos verschweißt, Polyurethan

 

optibelt ALPHA V timing belts are made from open-ended extruded optibelt ALPHA LINEAR timing belts that are welded together to achieve the specified length. They are used primarily in transport systems.

Despite the break in the tension cords at the finger spliced joint, the welded timing belts still achieve at least 50 % of the permissible tractive force achieved by belts with continuous cords. This is due to the high strength of the thermoplastic polyurethane.

When polyamide fabric is welded to the polyurethane belts, the fabric is simply butt jointed and not bonded together at its ends. In contrast, reinforced top surfaces and T2, yellow PU foam and APL plus coatings as well as the tooth side of the belt can be welded together as a joint-free composite.

Advantages that Optibelt offers

Lengths can be manufactured according to gradations in pitch


Can be supplied cost-effectively and at short notice


The reinforced top surface version and the T2, yellow PU foam or APL plus versions can be welded in composite

Characteristics that Optibelt offers

Also available with polyamide fabric on the tooth side and/or belt back

PU also available with FDA approval for food contact

Direct welding on of cleats and V-guides

Despite breaks in the tension cords, these belts offer approx. 50% of the performance of continuous cord timing belts

optibelt ALPHA FLEX

Timing belts - open-ended, extruded polyurethane

optibelt ALPHA FLEX Timing belts – endless extruded polyurethane

 

The optibelt ALPHA FLEX timing belt is manufactured to the customer’s length specification as an endless belt without any breaks in the tensile reinforcement. This means that two spirally wound tension cords are used.

These cords can be made of steel, highly flexible steel or stainless steel to suit a wide range of applications.

In the case of belts that are at least 1,500 mm long, the tooth side of the optibelt ALPHA FLEX can be covered with polyamide fabric (PAZ).
