List Price QUOTE


F.N. Sheppard & Co. provides custom belt fabricating services for customers in diverse industries. We offer 14 different processes, for projects as small as a prototypes to large production volumes. To maximize grip and control and minimize the crushing of your product, we feature precision contouring of radius, rectangular, square, v-shape, and custom shapes. Additionally, we provide extrusion services for materials and covers up to 6.5 inches in width and 40-90 durometers in hardness, with virtually limitless thickness. We have slit, vacuum, and knife cutting expertise for materials up to 8 feet wide and .75 inches thick, with minimal hole features of 1 mm. With the ability to grind any flat, conveyer, timing, Poly-V, HTD®, and V-belt surface- side, top and/or bottom- to precise tolerances, we can also create new surfaces, edges, grooves, teeth, contours or slots. We present 9 different methods of splicing and 6 different methods of bonding.

Featuring a variety of materials, we ensure that our capabilities meet your needs. Our seamless belts are truly endless, greatly increasing reliability, durability and longevity, and resulting in a reduction in breakdowns and consequent down time.
