We offer made-to-order Teflon belts for most fusing or laminating machines. In order to produce a superior Teflon belt, we cut our belts on a computer-controlled precision cutting machine. For pre-fused belts, we use a state-of-the-art belt welding press. The long life and superb design of our custom belts saves you time and money now, and in the long term.

Accurately fabricated belts.

Machinery belts must be perfectly square or they will not track correctly during production. We cut our belts on a computer-controlled precision cutting machine to help prevent the possibility of tracking difficulties.

Seam designs.

The belt seam can often be the most problematic area of machinery belts. We employ a number of techniques to improve seam performance and offer a selection of seam designs.

  • “Skarfed” seam: The smoothest, strongest, most flexible seam available today. It resembles a 1-inch overlap seam but is much smoother and more flexible. There’s no double thickness, as the mating surfaces are carefully ground to a taper and securely welded.
  • Overlap seam: This is the most popular seam because it is strong inexpensive and easiest to produce. The disadvantage of the overlap seam is that it is not very smooth and in some applications the seam may mark the material being fused. In addition, because the overlap seam is more than double the thickness of the rest of the belt it is slightly stiffer and suffers from early flex fatigue.
  • Angled seam: This seam is cut at a slight angle helping the belt to roll easily over the fusing machine rollers, reducing flex fatigue.
  • Reinforcement end tabs: At very little extra cost, ask for end tabs to be applied to any of our seam designs to create an additional line of defense against seam degradation and breakage.
  • Fully laminated belts: This type of belt is made with a thinner material that winds twice around the entire circumference of the belt. The two layers of the belt are then laminated together over the entire surface of the belt. This process makes the belt extremely smooth and virtually seamless, greatly reducing belt tracking problems.
