Production fabrics for conveyor belts

Conveyor belts

People transport and goods handling for different industrial branches such as foodstuff, pharmaceuticals, recycling, mining and many more

The main characteristics in our industrial production of fabrics for conveyor belts are:

- Resistance: fabrics must be resistant to wear, traction, and tearing to ensure a long lifespan of the transporter.

Dimensional stability: the fabrics used must maintain their dimensions and shape even under mechanical or thermal stress

Chemical resistance: fabrics must be resistant to chemicals used in industrial processes, such as acids, alkalis, and solvents.

- Temperature resistance: fabrics must be able to withstand high or low temperatures depending on the application of the conveyor.

- Flexibility: fabrics must be flexible to adapt to the shape of the conveyor belt.

- Low deformation: fabrics used must resist deformation caused by the weight of the materials being transported.

- Abrasion resistance: fabric conveyor must resist abrasion caused by the materials being transported.

To meet these requirements, fabrics used for conveyor belts are made from synthetic fibers such as nylon, polyester, or polypropylene. These fabrics are produced through advanced weaving processes that ensure dimensional stability and mechanical strength. Moreover, they undergo specific chemical treatments to ensure resistance to chemicals used in industrial processes. Finally, the fabrics are subjected to heat treatments to improve their resistance to high or low temperatures.

Technofabric produces fabrics for transporters using different types of synthetic fibers, such as nylon, polyester, and polypropylene, which are obtained by chemical processes from petroleum-based substances. The fibers are then melted and extruded through a device with small holes called a spinneret, which forms thin filaments of synthetic fibers. The fibers are then stretched, twisted, and woven into fabrics that can be used for various purposes, such as making conveyor. Technofabric also applies specific finishes and surface treatments to the fabrics to enhance their properties and performance
