RAPPLON Flat Drive Belts

RAPPLON flat drive belts are endless drive belts made with a joint.

The base is made of nylon tension fabric or, in the new generation, a special fabric with thermoplastic properties. The fabric is coated with leather, natural rubber, elastomers or many thermoplastic surfaces, depending on the belt type. Seamless surfaces are also available for special uses.

They are supplied in many variants as open-ended belts in rolls or as endless belts exactly according to the customer's requirements.

Belts Joints

RAPPLON belt joints can be made depending on the material from which the particular belt is made. You will find the exact information in the technical documentation of the selected belt.

Joint Type Description Illustration

CLASSIC

This traditional splicing method involves skiving both ends of the belt and the application of an adhesive. The strength of a classic joint (wedge skive) is close to the belt strength thanks to skilled and experienced staff.

QUICKSPLICE

The QUICKSPLICE joining system (finger joint) guarantee quick and safe endless joining without the use of any adhesives. Resulting joints are highly flexible and durable.

Advantages of QUICKSPLICE:

  • Allows for quick and easy on-site splicing
  • All tools fit in one easily portable case
  • Set comes with heating pliers with adjustable temperature settings
  • Splicing technology produces consistent thickness over a perfectly straight joining area
  • Reduce downtime - increase uptime

Belts Accessories

Guides

Guide profiles ensure direct belt guidance and prevent belt movement on the rollers. The result is a smooth guidance without a polygon effect, which is also suitable for higher speeds.

Profiles made of PVC, polyurethane or polyester are welded or glued to the bottom side of the conveyor belt.

The V-profile can also be used as a transverse carrier or side edge for transporting material.

The most common way of guiding the belt is a V-guide.

Profile Type Description Illustration

Full V-Profile

The smooth, clean design of the wedge is less prone to contamination.

Lightweight V-Profile

On the bottom side of the belt there is a wedge with pressed teeth, which allow easier bending and thus smaller cylinder diameters than solid wedges.

In addition to the V-profiles, the guide profiles can also be square. However, their use is far from numerous. If you are interested in implementing square guide profiles, please contact us.

Additional Belts Modifications

Punching

Punched Belt Example

Punching of conveyor belts is performed for the transport of products using vacuum and for applications with photocell control.

Punching is performed on punching machines, which are able to produce punching in a precisely defined arrangement.
