Polyurethane belts are quite popular in the material handling industry because of the several advantages they cater to when used in conveyor belts. Their property of high resistance and weight carrying capacity sets them apart from regular plastic belts and other materials.
They drive machines and carry out operations in several applications like line shaft conveyor, engravers, robotics, roller to roller type conveyors, sorters, popup diverters, laundry machine, transfers, distribution center conveyors, manufacturing of tyres, printing machines.
Benefits of Welding Polyurethane
Urethane belt welding can come in handy when conveyor belts require welding for any related purpose. The material is very stiff and rigid can be welded easily due to its high-temperature resistance. It comes out to be very flexible and durable.
Welding the belts can also increase the conveyor belt’s ability to carry a higher load than before. The material of the cords plays an important role in supporting goods for transportation. Some polyurethane belts have rough textures to aid against sliding off and falling of goods in case of belts which carry goods from one level to another and goes in spirals.
Polyurethane belt welding also improved the tension and compression handling capabilities of the conveyor belt. It accustoms to the shape of the goods being carried and adjusts back its original shape when done. Welding also considerably increases resistance to tear and wearing.
Welding also makes the belts flexible, so that they perform effectively even in situations of high fatigue loads. This makes the belts last longer and works efficiently.
Urethane belt welding is also very economical and an easy process. It takes very little time and gives rewarding results when compared to non-welded belts. Urethane is a material which is resistant to heat and harsh surroundings too which ensures that no damage is incurred during the welding process.
Polyurethane belt welding can highly increase the productivity of your conveyor belts and make them faster and more efficient. It provides you with surprisingly good benefits to make sure your belts transport a large number of goods to bring you greater profits.
