The traditional Plategrip teeth overlap the edges of the plates and provide extra holding power on thin belts. Passing smoothly over conveyor pulleys, Plategrip fasteners allow natural troughing of belts and smooth operation on both sides, through trippers and scrapers, as well as over crowned or takeup pulleys.
All buckets of solid plate fasteners have pre-assembled bolts and bottom plates that utilise our patented system, which includes the use of a special thin metal washer to clinch the bolt to the bottom plate during installation of the belt fasteners. This has proven to be superior to the use of plastic or nylon washers, which can slide along the bolt threads.
Hinged Plategrip Fasteners
The Hinged Plategrip fastener is ideally suited for applications where the loading and delivery points frequently change, such as mine, pit, quarry, and construction sites. As a compression-type fastener, secured by bolts, it provides tremendous holding power with good troughing action, while being readily separable after installation.
The hinged steel fastener can be used on all conveyor belts from 1/4″ to 5/8″ thick, and allows the joining of belts of varying thicknesses.
A design pattern composed of two to eight Riv-Nails allows for the fasteners to be clinched for maximum pull-out resistance — as the pilot nails do not cut the fabric, but divide it, and allow the rivets to slide between fill and warp yarns. The Riv-Nail is a compression fastener and, as such, does not rely entirely on the belt fabric for resistance to fastener pull-out.
Rivet Hinge fasteners are available in R-2, R-3, R-5, R-5 1/2, R-6, and R-8 sizes, which fit belts 3/16″ – 3/4″ thick. The fastener strip is cross-scored so it can be easily broken by hand to fit any belt width.
Staplegrip belt fasteners are unique, compared to conventional lightweight belt fasteners, because the staples are clinched 90° to the direction of the pull of the belt. Therefore, it is virtually impossible for the staple to open under load. Our staples are also unique. While other brands are rectangular, with their narrow dimension in line with the pull of the belt, Staplegrip staples are oval-shaped with smooth, rounded edges. This design feature reduces the possibility of the staple damaging the belting fabric.
Staplegrip Preset Fasteners
Staplegrip Preset belt fasteners are unique, compared to conventional lightweight belt fasteners, because the staples are clinched 90° to the direction of the pull of the belt. Therefore, it is virtually impossible for the staple to open under load. Our staples are also unique. While other brands are rectangular, with their narrow dimension in line with the pull of the belt, Staplegrip staples are oval-shaped with smooth, rounded edges. This design feature reduces the possibility of the staple damaging the belting fabric.
Staplegrip Preset Lacing, available in the popular 62, 125, and 187 sizes which fit belts 1⁄16″ to 1⁄4″, can only be used in hammer driver fixtures. The lacing is cross-scored so it can be easily broken by hand to exactly fit any belt width.
Time-tested and proven dependable, the strength of Steelgrip lacing is enhanced due to the common bar, which yields a continuous lacing strip for the width of the belting. Thus, the tension is distributed across the entire belt width. While made from a special steel that allows the points to pierce the belt carcass, the teeth are designed to enter the belt fabric without cutting the longitudinal strength members of the belting.
Steelgrip lacing comes in 8 sizes for belts from 1⁄16″ to 3⁄8″ thickness. The lacing is cross-scored so that it can easily be broken by hand to exactly fit any belt width exactly.
- Galvanized Standard for sizes 00, 1, and 7. Good for abrasion utilizing a low-carbon steel. Galvanizing provides some resistance to elements. Magnetic and poor chemical resistance.
- Carbon Steel Standard for sizes 15 through 45. Good for abrasion utilizing a low-carbon steel, which has good forming characteristics, allowing easy installation. Magnetic and poor chemical resistance.
- Stainless Steel A nickel chrome stainless steel that offers excellent resistance to fatty acids and wash-down chemicals, also good for mechanical abrasion. Excellent for use where food and sanitation requirements are high. Basically non-magnetic.
Ideally suited for high-speed, heavy-duty applications, Flexgrip can be used for round belts of leather, urethane, or rubber type compounds. Flexgrip couplings are internally threaded and screw on to belt ends, eliminating the punching of holes necessary with other methods. One end is “closed” and the other is “open.”
The design facilitates easy installation and precise adjustment of belt tension. Flexgrip couplings can be used on belts from 3/16″ (4.5mm) to 1/2″ (12.5mm).
