In order to ship conveyors in five days under our Quick Ship program, we stock seven different materials that can be quickly made to length to match the conveyor ordered. Since they cover a wide variety of potential applications and ensure a quick delivery, these seven materials represent approximately 95% of conveyor orders.
The seven belt materials include everything from multi-purpose belting to high and low friction varieties. Meet all seven below.
This off-white belt material has been our most popular for more than 30 years. It offers a low coefficient of friction that makes it a good candidate for many accumulation applications at a budget-friendly price point. We’re able to add cleats to this material in-house to meet customer specifications.
This bright white belt material is the standard for our Automation Series conveyors. It offers a slightly higher coefficient of friction compared to the MAA belt material, making it a good option for tackling light inclines. Cleats may also be added to this material.
This light gray fabric belt material offers a very low coefficient of friction that makes it ideal for accumulation applications (where the belt continues moving beneath stopped product). It’s also good for side-to-side transfers as it allows product to slide smoothly onto the conveyor.
A gray “snakeskin” belt material that offers a high coefficient of friction that allows it to tackle inclines and declines while maintaining control of the product. It’s capable of moving hot parts up to 212°.
This green rough-top belt material is one of our most popular. The deep ridge pattern offers a high coefficient of friction that gives it the ability to tackle the steepest inclines.
These two belt materials are incredibly similar. Both offer a high level of cut resistance that makes them ideal for parts with sharp edges. IAC is a urethane material, while IAF is PVC. We stock both versions because they offer resistance to different chemicals, especially cutting fluids. IAC is also capable of handling hot parts up to 248°.
