Mechanical Fasteners

Choosing the proper mechanical belt fastening system is one of the most important steps in splicing a belt. To ensure you’re purchasing the best products, choose those that are made from the best materials. At ASGCO® we ensure that higher-quality metals are used for every fastener we produce. This quality makes a difference in the strength of our products, and in the satisfaction of our customers technical requirements.

SUPER-SCREW IS AN INNOVATIVE, SIMPLE AND FAST SOLUTION FOR SPLICING YOUR RUBBER BELTS.

mlt SUPER SCREW

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 the repair of holes and rips.

SUPER SCREW ADVANTAGES

  • Wear and cut resistant
  • Perfect for tubular belts
  • Flexible and leak proof
  • High tensile strength
  • Compatible with small pulley diameter by bias installation
  • Can be used for a short insert on the conveyor system
  • Compatible with conveyor belt scraper s
  • Available in coil or ‘ready to use’ cut specific lengths
  • High-heat belt up to 200°C or 392 °F
  • Low temperatures -50°C or 19°F
  • Many rubber qualities available
  • For anti-magnetic splice use anti-magnetic stainless steel

 

BELT SKIVER PS 15 STANDARD

  • Handle is very ergonomic and comfortable.
  • Every blade can be fitted on the cutting head.
  • Clamps are spring loaded.
  • Can skive on any part of your belt.
  • Can skive your belts from 1/16 ” to 5/8” deep.
  • Each part is available as a spare part.

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

  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.
  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 Flex co® 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.
