Thin steel belts

Sandvik Process Systems, a product area within Sandvik Materials Technology and the company behind the world’s first steel belt over 100 years ago, is set to expand its presence in the conveying market with the introduction of ultra-thin steel belts that can be employed in applications previously monopolised by plastic belts. The new belt thickness of 0.2 mm, together with a belt width up to 600mm, results in a reduced deflection diameter which in turn opens up new opportunities for this proven conveying medium. Among the inherent benefits of steel as a material for transporting goods
is its excellent properties in terms of thermal conductivity; corrosion resistance; high tensile strength; high reversed bending strength; hard, smooth surface and resistance to abrasion. Among the choices available to Sandvik’s designers are stainless or carbon steels, solid or perforated construction and a smooth or textured surface. Following major investment in its manufacturing and finishing facilities,
the company can produce belts in widths ranging from as narrow as 200mm right up to belts measuring 6000mm wide – with the capacity to supply even larger if required.
