How are commercial belts made?

commercial belts

V-Belts and fan belts are becoming more and more in demand as a result of the fast industrial expansion. InĀ correas industriales drives with a wide range of horse power extending upward from a fractional number, V-Belts are frequently employed in single or multiple form for autos, home and commercial equipment, and drives in commercial and industrial vehicles.

There is a lot of room to grow new businesses in this field. Because of the trend toward efficient, low-maintenance individual drives, V-Belt drives are growing in popularity.

Principles and Assumptions

The projections are made based on a production capacity that is often regarded as techno-economically feasible for a typical industrial activity. The information provided is based on typical industrial operations using traditional production methods. When preparing a project profile, costs for land and buildings, machinery and equipment, raw materials, and the selling price of completed goods, among other things, are often determined. However, these costs can change based on a number of variables. Although a few names of raw material and machinery suppliers are listed at the conclusion of the profile, they are neither exclusive nor comprehensive.

Method of Production

Rubber is compounded on a mixing mill together with other chemicals and fillers. Depending on the kind of V-Belts, the compound is taken as a sheet with a range of thickness. An immersion tank is used to dip tire cords. On a spreading machine, rubber solution is applied to canvas before it is cut into desired sizes. After that, a shaping machine is used to take the rubber compound sheet.

The spinning former is round in shape and has different diameters. Cord winding, rubber sheet, and so forth are produced in the order specified once the rubber sheet has been manufactured. The formed material is then sliced into V-belts. Each of these V-belts is taken off of the former and wrapped in coated canvas on a wrapping.

The belt components are kept in rolls that have already been cut to the right widths (we use standard widths across most of our products for this reason). Since we have seven belt materials in store in each of our regular widths, we can rapidly create and splice belts for about 95% of conveyor orders. Rolls are stored on special racks that are covered while not in use to protect the belt materials from fading.

To guarantee perfect alignment in the machine, the material is passed through the finger punching machine, measured to the correct length, and aligned to the edge of the table. A die that travels horizontally over the cloth is used to punch out each of the triangular fingers one at a time. After being pounded, the fingers are looped collectively around a platen.
