The optibeltATC-SYSTEM is a patented system solution and comprises an extruded polyurethane timing belt. With its impressed ATC recesses, it offers a cost-effective solution in flexible systems.
The user of the ATC-SYSTEM can fasten screw-on cleats quickly and easily to a freely selectable tooth, on the spot. The connection can be fastened and detached directly by the user. As a result,varying forms of transported goods can be conveyed on the same drive and base belt using different screw-on cleats. With detachable cleat fastenings, the costs for stock-keeping of wear and spare parts can be reduced.
ATC inserts also make it possible to screw parts on directly, such as highly precise metal workpiece carriers, without using welded-on, specially manufactured cleats with inserts. Furthermore, screw-on cleats can transmit higher forces in comparison to permanently connected cleats. In addition, a smaller minimum pulley diameter can be chosen for the same fastening strength. Screw-on cleats for the ATC-SYSTEM are available on request.
With the ATC-System, an ATC-IN insert for screwing on the cleat is laid into the prepared recess in the tooth. In the optibeltALPHA V timing belt, these recesses are consistently available in all teeth in profiles ATC10 and ATC20.
The assignment to belt profiles and properties can be found in the optibeltATC-SYSTEM brochure.
