Extra Wide Timing Belts Overview

Extra Wide Timing Belts Overview

Wide belts

TransDev hold in stock, polyurethane timing belts in widths up to 450mm. This belt is specifically designed for synchronous conveying applications. Wide belts are primarily used as process conveyor belts. Process (or conversion steps) normally occur on the belt, therefore the conveyed product requires additional width.

Common applications

  • High speed conveying
  • Rapid indexing
  • Automated process conveyor belts
  • Bulk product conveying
  • Clean room or wash down environment
