EFT System Connected Polyurethane Conveyor Timing Belts
The EFT mechanical fastening system is specially designed for fastening cleats with fixing screws. The system allows the application of profiles of any material (steel, polyamide, POM, wood, etc.) and in any dimension.
The belt tooth is replaced by a metal tooth made of zinc coated or stainless steel with threaded holes. The cleats are then attached to the belt with fixing screws.
EFT connected timing belts are available in two versions: total tooth design (the polyurethane tooth is entirely replaced by a steel tooth) or embedded tooth design (tooth sides remain and prevent metal to metal contact with the pulley).
- EFT belt with ground tooth and holes
- Entered false metal tooth
- Attached carrier
- Fixing screws
Belts Fields of Use
EFT connected timing belts are used in selected industry areas as conveyor timing belts where the cleats are exposed to very high loads, where it is necessary to attach cleats made of different material from the polyurethane belt body or where an easy disassembly and replacement of the cleats is required.
They are most often used in machines in the food, automotive or woodworking industries, in distribution centres, packaging machines and many other devices.
Optional Belt Surface Layers
The choice of the surface layer depends on the type of machine, the ambient temperature, the size of the pulleys, etc. Specifying the surface layer is determined by the material and the thickness of the layer.
|Layer Name||Material||Layer Illustration|
|PAZ (NFT) - nylon fabric on teeth
Low coefficient of friction
|PAR (NFB) - nylon fabric on back
|PAZ + PAR (NFT + NFB) - fabric on teeth and back
Low coefficient of friction and surface protection
The fabric on teeth and back can be combined with all other layers. A complete range of belt surface layers
