Endless Joint Types

The BODE Process & Conveyor Belts are either welded or mechanically joined into endless belts.
Our joining methods are described here:

I. Welded joints

01 Finger joint

In this method, fingers are punched into the ends to be joined, and then tacked together and welded under pressure and heat. This method is especially suitable for single-layered belts.

02 Overlapped finger joint

We recommend the overlapped finger joint. Again, in this case, the ends to be joined are split into layers. Next, fingers are punched into the ends, which are then tacked together and welded under pressure and heat into an endless belt.

03 Layered joint

In a layered joint, the ends to be joined are split into layers and equally overlapped – although at an angle of 80° in order to ensure reliable running around the pulley.

04 Skived joint

We use the skived joint for our rubber and felt belts. In this case, the ends to be joined are split at an 80° oblique angle, overlapped to equal amounts and bonded into an endless belt using adhesive and pressure.

Limitations: Only thermoplastic belts can be welded. Otherwise, belts are glued. Minimum belt length: 800 mm, maximum belt width: 3,000 mm

II. Plastic spiral joint

The plastic spiral joint is excellently suited to fine applications. It can be used for all types of belt.

III. Mechanical joints

For applications that do not allow either installation of an endless belt or welding into the system, INO process and conveyor belts can be equipped with mechanical joints.

01 Haken in runder Ausführung

Metal hooks are pressed into the ends of the belt so that the belt can be joined endlessly using a metal rod. In embossed belts, the cover layer is removed so that the hooks do not project beyond the belt surface.

02 Haken in flacher Ausführung

Metal hooks are pressed into the ends of the belt so that the belt can be joined endlessly using a metal rod. In embossed belts, the cover layer is removed so that the hooks do not project beyond the belt surface.

03 Plattenverbinder

Metal hooks are pressed into the ends of the belt so that the belt can be joined endlessly using a metal rod. In embossed belts, the cover layer is removed so that the plates do not project beyond the belt surface.

* For widths greater than the hook length, the hooks are arranged side-by-side.
