Machine Tapes

Machine tapes are central to manufacturing operations. They convey, speed up, slow down, position and, when required, fold the paper material processed.
Habasit's comprehensive range of Hamid, polyamide and polyurethane machine tapes are manufactured with abrasion-resistant NBR covers or other application-oriented surface materials. They provide the industry with effective and comprehensive belting solutions that are extremely reliable, have constant grip, and offer long service lives.

Hamid machine tapes
Hamid machine tapes can be joined quickly by fusing the ends together without adhesives using the Flexproof or Quickmelt method. This results in a superior product with uniform flexibility over the whole length. In addition, it provides significant cost savings in terms of maintenance and reduced machine downtimes.

Polyamide machine tapes
The traction layer of these machine tapes is highly resilient and can cope with intermittent overloads, which prevents residual elongation. This makes retensioning unnecessary, and avoids costly and time-consuming machine downtimes.

Polyurethane machine tapes
Fine textile-structure friction covers made of TPU, specifically developed for belt surfaces undergoing high stress, provide best-in-class abrasion resistance. The tape can be joined quickly by fusing the ends together without adhesives using the Flexproof or Quickmelt method. The elastic TPU foil traction layer permits quick installation with short machine downtimes.

Folder-Gluer Belts

Habasit folder-gluer belts offer excellent folding precision and high machine performance. With a choice of polyamide or polyester composite for the traction layer, plus proven NBR rubber covers, Habasit’s comprehensive range is suitable for applications extending from box folding to tube winding.

Habasit folder-gluer belts provide excellent reversed bending properties, high abrasion resistance, and outstanding dimensional stability. Their constant and safe grip provides precise folding and the belts leave no marking on the transported goods.

Habasit Flexfold polyester belts
Our versatile thermoplastic folder-gluer belts are suitable for a wide variety of different applications in carton and corrugated cardboard box folding. They are suitable for machine speeds of up to 750 m/min.

With their thermoplastic traction layer, Habasit Flexfold belts are suitable for reliable, adhesive-free Flexproof joining. This quick and easy joining can be done while the belt is on the machine, which avoids cumbersome dismantling, reduces machine downtime, and saves costs. There is no need for extensive operator training. The joint zone and belt are totally homogeneous, resulting in flexible and abrasion-resistant belts that are easy to fit and provide best-in-class performance.

Polyamide folder-gluer belts
The design and production of Habasit's polyamide folder-gluer belts is based on many years of experience with polyamide products. These belts fulfill all the requirements of common box folding processes, with rubber covers that provide high durability, good positive grip, and the ability to cope with rough conditions. These belts are also suitable for tube winders. 

Polyamide folder-gluer belts are available in two different constructions:
- The “traditional” version with a traction layer consisting of PA foil and PA fabrics. These types are joined by gluing (using the Thermofix joining system). The belts are suitable for machine speeds of up to 600 m/min. 
- More sophisticated types that feature a thermoplastic foil traction layer combined with polyamide fabrics, allowing adhesive-free joining (using the Flexproof method). These belts are suitable for machine speeds of up to 300 m/min.

Seamless Belts

The Habasit seamless belt portfolio consists of woven endless and knitted endless belts, as well as synchronous and non-synchronous endless substrates. The belts can be coated with no splice or seam, providing uniform physical properties during the entire belt service life.
Our manufacturing processes and ideal combination of materials ensure optimal design for your specific application requirements. Habasit seamless belts offer reduced lifecycle costs, as well as smooth and vibration-free operation, especially at high speeds.

Belt Design
The seamless belt substrate (fabric) is manufactured endless on looms, or knitted as a tube. The threads are wound in a spiral in the belt running direction. The belt circumference is determined by the diameter of the spirals, while the required width is obtained by slitting the tube. To achieve the necessary properties and dimensional stability, the belt substrate is coated with a specific elastomer and treated in a special thermal process. Seamless belts are available in stable, semi-stable, semi-elastic, and elastic versions.

Habasit GRABBER seamless belts
Habasit GRABBER belts are customized for specific applications where product feeding or pulling is required. The compound selected is based on the coefficient of friction and abrasion resistance desired. Habasit GRABBER belts are usually further segmented by application type.

Traditional seamless belts
These belts are produced by weaving or knitting a “tube” of fabric material in a circular fashion. The belts are then coated with various rubber or plastic materials depending on the application requirements. Since the belts do not have a splice, they are very strong for the given thickness and can also be produced to hold very tight length tolerances.

Power Transmission Belts
Habasit seamless power transmission belts are used to transmit power in light duty applications, including lathes, grinders, vacuum cleaners, and spindle drives. A variety of strengths are available based on different fabric designs.

Conveying Belts
Habasit seamless conveying belts are used for transporting light objects, usually at higher speeds, such as: paper, currency, tickets, and envelopes. Various strengths are available based on different fabric designs. Different friction values are achieved through the selection of the top cover compound.

Endless woven belts
Endless woven processing belts are customized to individual application requirements and are either seamless or woven endless. The fabric is then coated with TPU, DPU, PVC, or silicone, depending on the application requirements. Several belt strengths are available, achieved by altering the weave design. The belts are further segmented by industry.

Power Transmission Belts

Habasit’s fully synthetic, high-quality power transmission belts are equipped with a strong and resilient traction layer made of polyamide, polyester, or aramid. Wear-, oil- and grease-resistant friction covers made of NBR rubber provide a high degree of consistent friction between belt and pulleys.
The versatility and energy-saving properties of these maintenance-free belts make them a key component in all areas of power transmission technology. Their long service life and little or no unexpected machine downtime make them a reliable solution across a variety of industries.
The Habasit portfolio includes polyester, polyamide, and aramid power transmission belts, customized to suit a wide array of machine designs.
