  • GMT3™ is compatible with 3MR GT, 3M HTD and 3M RPP pulleys
  • Proprietary tooth profile is designed to minimize noise and for running on slider beds
  • Polyurethane body provides high abrasion resistance
  • GMT3™ is also produced as a spliced endless belt in any length from 770 mm and up

Advantages Over Flat Conveyor Belting

  • Provides positive indexing, allowing hgher acceleration rates without slippage                             
  • Kevlar® tensile members
    - Minimal stretch allows for longer belt life and eliminates periodic retensioning
  • Longer conveyor life
    - Lower initial tension requirements put less force on shafts and bearings

Advantages Over Plastic Modular Chain
  • Quieter
  • Less surface area to harbor bacteria
    - Faster CIP process
  • Can run on much smaller pulley diameters
