Belting solution takes the heat
April 7, 2014 - Process and conveyor belting solutions providers Ammeraal Beltech, working with and for the panel board and broader wood processing industry, have created an infeed belt for conti-presses that improves efficiency, is easy to install, and offers an extended service life. The company's ZipLink belt system has progressed from concept to proven global solution in just two years, with installations on every continent.
Greater efficiency, easier installation
ZipLink belts are designed to solve a major issue with traditional continuous belts in panel board industry. Normally constructed from PVC or PU, and installed on site with the aid of a welding press, traditional belts withstand only 110ºC, are difficult to splice, and have a short lifetime. The available alternative, an endless woven belt, takes around eight hours to change when necessary, and a team of four to five people. Ammeraal Beltech's ZipLink belts feature a specially designed spiral link made of high quality polyester monofilament with a Silam silicone impregnation. They are continuous and seamless, and the innovative quick splicing method allows the installation of a seamless belt without the need to disassemble the processing machine. They can be installed from start to finish by just two people within two hours. The belt can handle high temp applications above 200ºC. The belt itself remains often cooler and is resistant to 180ºC; and it is designed to handle an 8mm nosebar. If an accident happens on the processing line, ZipLink belts can also be repaired. In all, ZipLink belts' construction delivers real benefits, particularly in terms of increased production time and saved costs.
