Types of connection


An often underestimated, but immensely important factor in the functionality and durability of a conveyor belt is the selected type of connection. It will be individually tailored to belt quality, purpose of use and technical conditions. In such cases as reversing operation or small rollers, only fingers connections or appropriately chosen belt hooks are operating.
However, for e.g. conveyors with inflections with hold-down rollers, these connections are unsuitable. For e.g. mounting on-site with too small space for equipment, mechanical connectors, such as our patented IKLUMET connector, are optimal. In contrast to regular mechanical connectors, the ceiling is in this variant almost completely closed and no bulk material can sift through it. Pure fabric belts (IKLUFILZ) or not thermoplastic belts (IKLUPAN) are bonded conically. In addition, sewn connections, mechanical connectors welded and covered with flaps are also possible.

Please contact us in case of doubt, we will be happy to advise you.
