Patented PacTite® design eliminates gaps between pickets to prevent product tipping, vibration. Our standard-duty conveyor belts are made with 11-gauge rods, while heavy-duty belts are made with 6-gauge rods. They are available also in modified 1/2″ x 1/2″, true 1/2″ x 1/2″ and can duty styles. Mat picket style flatwire belts are available for certain applications that require it. Clinched edges form a clean, smooth selvage that prevents the belt from necking down and hanging up on the side of the conveyor. Since the metal belt edge has not been metallurgically altered through the welding process, it is therefore stronger and lasts longer.
