Types and functions of conveyor belt edges

The conveyor belt can also be divided into molded edge type and cut edge type.

The belt carcass of the molded type has a small space from the edge of the conveyor belt, so that the belt carcass does not directly contact the outside world.  Fabric layer conveyor belts often use this structure, which can prevent the moisture in the  fabric from diffusing, which will cause the weakening of the carcass performance. If there is no influence of environment and material, mold pressing edge is also needed.

The cut edge type is to cut the edges of the conveyor belt after manufacturing, so that a very wide conveyor belt can be easily cut into a narrower width to meet the needs of fast delivery. The adhesion of synthetic fabric and rubber is very good, and it is not easy to produce biological effects, so the belt carcass will not be adversely affected by the edge of the conveyor belt. Its advantages are fast processing speed, better strength of the conveyor belt, and better mechanical properties at the edges, which can prevent damage to the conveyor belt when it runs to instability.
