Worldwide supplier to machine builders as well as car and motorcycle manufacturers, Gates, is expanding its programme to include an entirely new product line.
Black Flat belts are finite, extruded belts made of high strength polyurethane, which are mainly used in lifting and conveying applications.
The Black Flat series has been especially adapted to a wide variety of mechanical requirements. With combinations of different types of polyurethane and tension members, belts with a range of mechanical properties can be produced. Flat belts with food approval are available specifically for use in the food industry. Bespoke versions can also be produced.
All belts are characterised by smooth running, low vibration, low elongation and high strength. They are usually sold by the meter and secured in application by clamps or a Fix-Flat fastening system.
