One of the most popular ways to link a belt is the use of a mechanical joint. Commonly called “fasteners” in the industry, this type of joint offers several benefits. It is, among other things, offered in several styles and alloys making it a durable seal easily installable by the customer. This saves time on installation and avoids the costs of a technician, and of un-scheduled downtimes. Mechanical fasteners also help to remove the belt without having to disassemble the conveyor.
