                                      • Belt Design

                                      • The belt substrate (fabric) is manufactured endless on looms as a tube. 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.

                                        To reach the required properties and dimensional stability, the belt substrate is coated with a specific elastomer and treated in a special thermal process. For friction-feed applications, the belts are further 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. Seamless belts are available in stable, semi-stable, semi-elastic, and elastic versions.
                                      • Belt Types

                                    • Habasit round belts are highly flexible, directionally adjustable, and multi-directional for angular gears. They can be used for conveying as well as for driving applications. As a result of their elasticity, round belts can be installed without a tensioning device. This allows compact machine designs. In addition, the elasticity acts as a security element by reducing shocks in case of brief overloads.


                                      Round belts are highly resilient, and their physical and chemical characteristics are exceptional in many areas: their resistance to hydrolysis is significantly superior to that of most existing polyurethane elastomer. As a result, Habasit round belts are resistant to water, oils, grease and benzine. Thanks to their close cross-section tolerances, Habasit round belts guarantee uniform power transmission.

                                      • Wear Strips and Guides HabiPLAST

                                      • Wear strips, sliding supports and guides, as well as curved and straight tracks that are extruded or machined, are used in many industries, including bottling, packaging, mechanics, chemistry, pharmaceutics, ceramics, glass, food processing, paper, etc. These items represent an ideal complement to modular belts (HabasitLINK), slat and conveyor chains (HabaCHAIN), and timing belts (HabaSYNC).

                                        The HabiPLAST material used is a polyethylene (PE) with a high molecular weight, obtained through a low pressure polymerization process. The high molecular weight means that mechanical features are also increased, such as: impact resistance, tensile strength at high temperatures, and energy absorption under high stress levels.
