Felt belts are called felt conveyor belts and are widely used in industrial applications. The industries where it is used in large quantities are the cutting machine, logistics, steel plate, printing and packaging, etc.
Type of Felt Conveyor Belt
1. Double-sided felt belt
Felt belt thickness: 1.6mm, 2.5mm, 3.0mm, 4.0mm, 4.2mm, 5.5mm;
2. Single-sided felt
Felt belt thickness: 1.2mm, 1.6mm, 2.0mm, 2.5mm, 3.2mm, 4.0mm, 5.0mm, 5.5mm.
Felt Conveyor Belt Application
We already know the types of felted conveyor belts. Then what are the characteristics of the felt belt in the application? Take the cutting and steel sheet industry as an example.
1. Cutting machine industry
Cutting machine industry, mainly automatic cutting machine CNC cutting machine. Mainly used in garment, packaging and other industries.
The cutting knife needs to touch the surface of the conveyor belt, which requires the conveyor belt to have good resistance to cutting.
Sometimes the material is light and easy to fly up, which requires the conveyor belt to have the characteristics of wind absorption.
Cutting equipment needs to be precisely positioned, which depends on electrical support and requires a conveyor belt with low flexibility and a non-slip surface.
Combining the above conditions, felt conveyor belts have become the first choice for automated cutting equipment.
2. Steel plate industry
The steel plate industry is mainly dominated by cross and longitudinal shearing and stamping equipment. Mainly used in the raw material processing class of steel plates.
The steel plate industry mainly considers shearing equipment; usually, the products will be relatively sharp. This requires a conveyor belt with strong cutting resistance, impact resistance, wear resistance, oil resistance and other characteristics;
Stamping equipment where the main products will fall quickly requires a conveyor belt with good impact resistance.
Some steel plates have smooth surfaces and cannot be scratched because of the processing process. So the conveyor belt must be soft and not easy to cross the product’s characteristics.
Features of felt conveyor belt
1. resistant to cutting, abrasion and puncture.
2. soft texture, not easy to scratch the product, extreme curvature (except single-sided felt).
3. high tensile strength and low elongation.
4. high surface friction.
5. Good air permeability.
The above is the introduction of the characteristics and industry applications of felt conveyor belt. The application of the conveyor belt in various industries will increase in the future, and the felt belt’s advantages will benefit it to play a role in more fields.
