Gates Mectrol timing belts can be customized with welded-on profiles to meet the specific demands of your application.
These profiles can be molded in virtually any configuration for holding, pushing, lifting, or actuating. This makes these profile belts ideal for your assembly, packaging, inserting and other automation equipment applications.
Our molded profiles are produced in the same tough urethane and become an integral part of the belt by thermal bonding.
Pushing, carrying or actuating in packaging applications
Product location in process applications
Holders for mounting devices
Interchangeable spacing for alternate product conveying
Exact placement of the profile allows for precision assembly of parts. In this
application, razor heads are mounted
accurately as a result of the Gates

Tooling charges are minimal for most customized designs. Gates Mectrol QuickShip profiles offer cost savings and fast delivery. Our most requested profiles are available with a ten day lead time for a standard or stock belt.
