Mechanical Fasteners

Minet

Minet Lacing Technology has developed the SUPER-SCREW®. MLT specific screws are self-drilling and self-tapping (they spread the carcass threads without cutting them).

The fasteners are made of composite material with self-tapping screws and are usable on reinforced rubber corresponding to the various conveyor quality: wear, oil or fire-resistant or white FDA.

The screwing system allows Super-Screw® to be installed regardless of the configuration of the conveyor belt, access condition and weather conditions.

Super-Screw® can also be used as a permanent splice and for repair of holes and rips.

Additional Fasteners

Clip’N Lock® is a low profile light duty fastener. It maintains the normal pitch that ensures an excellent gripping of the claws in wide belts.

Meander Design developed by Minet Lacing Technology’s R&D
•  Double rows of teeth for additional strength
•  Eliminates risk of loosing claws
•  Helps to maintain pitch in wide belts
•  Trough belts – 33 % more grip points gives 15 % additional strength.

MS® Fasteners utilizes self-tapping screws for heavy duty belts that require no drilling, no template, and no hammering. The screws drill smoothly through the belt, while maintaining belt integrity (thickness of 9/64’’ to 23/32’’).
•  No Pre Drilling / No template
•  Installed by screwing directly
•  Belt is clamped by the fastener itself
•  Rubber belts can be repaired, then back to work
•  Turn fastener upside down for a more leak proof and long life installation

How to specify the right fastener
Flexco Measure 1_web

1. Determine belt tension – Most conveyor belting has
a mechanical fastener rating. Care should be taken not
to operate the belting or fasteners beyond their
recommended ratings.

2. Measure belt thickness – If fasteners are to be countersunk,
measure the belt thickness after a portion of the belt cover
has been removed. Choose a fastener size which corresponds
to belt thickness.
Flexco Measure 2_web

3. Measure the diameter of the smallest pulley in your drive –
For tail or take-up of the self-cleaning “wing” type pulley,
25% larger diameter dimensions are generally required.
Only consider pulleys over which the belt makes at least
a 90º wrap.

4. Choose the fastener size that is appropriate for your
specifications – Consult individual Flexco® application
catalogs to guide your selection.

5. Hinged or solid plate?- When either style is appropriate,
solid plate styles are preferred for longer life and to prevent
sifting. Hinged fasteners are preferred on portable
conveyors with smaller pulley diameters.
