Mechanical couplings for conveyor belts allow for quick connection of the belt on the machine. They reduce downtime in the event of a breakdown and allow the production process to continue until service arrives. They are also used wherever a thermal connection is not possible due to the design of the machine.
The type of mechanical joint is selected depending on the thickness of the belt, diameter of drums on which they will rewind, type of transported material and type of applied belt. Archimedes offer includes mechanical connectors of Anker, Aligator, MS, G, Super-Screw, plate and repair pins.
Some of them require the use of appropriate mounting devices and some of them allow for quick assembly without the use of specialist equipment. Mechanical joints can be made of galvanized steel, stainless steel and plastic, which allows them to be used in almost every manufacturing industry
