Metalroll Belts This application is becoming more and more common and has gradually increased over the past 20 years with the expanding technology of laser and plasma cutting and the need to obtain different surface details on metal (steel, iron, aluminium, tungsten, titanium) and on the surface of composite material. There are several processing conditions that range from the removal of surface oxides to the removal of cutting burrs, brushing, sanding, polishing or buffing. SLEEVE BELT (WITHOUT JOINT) FOR METAL FINISHING MACHINES. Cooperation with the leading machine manufacturers in this sector (all well known also as producers of wood sanding/calibrating machines) and our special sleeve technology (seamless rings) allow us to offer a range of textile structures and rubber covers that makes the METALROLL the perfect product for each of the above listed applications. So the main features of a METALROLL are: • High flexibility and adaptability to pulleys with small diameters • Absolute running stability which ensures high precision in material tracking • Low compression deformation due to pressure rollers • Abrasion resistance • Resistance to the absorption of typical metal working fluids (lubrification processing aids) • A high grip value between the belt and the processed material, above all in wet conditions where coefficient of friction of the rubber belt is higher than that of other materials (Thermoplastics, PVC, PU) • Retention of the original friction coefficient after usage • Possibility to operate at high speeds and under longitudinal, transverse, swinging and pulsing loads • Use with parallel, counter rotating or oscillating The main processes are: • Deburring • Edge rounding • Sanding • Calibration • Rust removal (Oxide, Impurity, …) • Graining • Lapping The machines can be distinguished in machines for “dry” and “wet” working according to the material being processed and the required quality.
