The belt substrate (fabric) is manufactured endless on looms, or knitted, as a tubular hose. The threads are wound in a spiral in the belt drive running direction. The belt circumference is determined by the diameter of the spirals, while the required width is obtained by slitting the tube.
For friction-feed applications, Habasit’s GRABBER belts are coated with a specific cover compound in a truly seamless manner, ensuring uniform physical properties during the entire service life. This unique manufacturing process guarantees optimal, smooth and vibration-free operation, even at high speeds.
Endless woven or seamless processing belts are available in a range of belt strengths and are uniformly coated with thermoplastic materials or silicone to obtain the required properties for the specific application.
