How to splice the endless conveyor belt well is one of the problems we meet during our daily work. Before splicing, there are some factors we need to consider: the belt's construction, strength, usage, and joint angle.

Lightweight plied conveyor belt splicing options

  • Finger splice - Mainly used in thermoplastic belts. With high strength and flexibility, it helps to keep a clean and hygienic belt.
  • Finger over finger - If the finger splice can't achieve the best splicing effect, the finger over the finger will be a better choice. A double layer of fingers increases the splicing area so that the splicing strength of the belt also be increased. 
  • Skive splice - Usually, it is used in splicing thermoplastic and rubber belts. It's available for the skive splice with hot and cold glue.
