Urethane has become a workhorse in countless production situations around the world. Why? It's tough, can be made to any length, and stands up to the harshest industrial and environmental conditions. That makes it an outstanding value. Ask us about it.
Molded Endless Belts are designed for power transmission and positioning applications. These belts are produced in a truly endless form. Having no splices or seams, they are ideal for higher torque drives. Produced with a high quality urethane body and steel reinforcing cords, and in some cases Kevlar® or polyester cords. Truly Endless Belts offer many advantages over traditional neoprene belts. Urethane is also chemical resistant.
Urethane Construction Urethane offers extremely good abrasion resistance. Low wear means that the belts will be very clean running, with no accumulation of debris. Urethane teeth are much harder than traditional neoprene teeth, which contributes to the belts overall stiffness. This makes ...
In the past, there has been two basic methods for producing timing belts, Molded Endless and Open-Ended. Now we can offer a third method called Flex-Wound Endless. This method allows us to provide belts with molded endless strength, and with flexibility in making belts any length within the given range listed below.
Consider this belt when you need a wound endless construction and a standard molded endless belt is not available.
F. N. Sheppard Flex - Timing Belts are made to custom lengths ranging from 1.5 to 13.5 meters. Our unique manufacturing process provides you with the benefit of custom length belts with the additional power, strength and reliability of truly endless construction.
The need for wide timing belts continues to increase. F. N. Sheppard can provide both urethane and neoprene belts as wide or wider than anybody else in the industry. Any narrower widths can be cut to size.
Urethane timing belts with “Pin Splice”. The strongest mechanical splice for timing belts. Ideal for quick belt installations, which reduces machine downtime. Easily installed by hands with pliers.Quiet running because there are no exposed metal parts to come in contact with pulleys. Can run on your existing belt and can operate with back bend idlers. Precision fit, therefore eliminating gaps other wise seen in competing designs. Strong enough for all conveying applications and can be custom designed according to the application strength needed. Available on most pitches, making it a “must have” for all conveying
One piece molded profiles and belts are integrally molded using high performance thermoset urethane. The profile and belt are molded as one, using a centrifugal, heat cast processing method. This type of construction removes the necessity for any additional fabrication. This process provides a wide range of material characteristics specifically formulated to suit your application, and the flexibility to test and evaluate various compounds. Even with an initial one time engineering service charge, this is the most economical method of producing high quantify, high quality requirements for profiled belts.
Blue Urethane Timing Belts are popular in food production and packaging applications.
Food safety is the constant goal of the food processing industry. This can only be achieved through implementation of stringent sanitation practices. Selecting belts of a proper construction is a critical component in a total plant hygiene and sanitation strategy. Image, reputation, discriminating consumer tastes and government oversight have combined to create this high quality standard. Our comprehensive product range offers cost effective conveying solutions in a wide variety of application conditions.
