ALLIGATOR LACING

Alligator Belt Lacing


How Alligator Lacing Works

Alligator lacing utilizes a design with teeth that enter parallel to the length of the belt and imbed clear through the belt carcass. The teeth are formed so that when they are driven into the belt, the vital longitudinal carcass fibers are not severed.
 
Additional strength is obtained due to the connecting bar and because the fastener strip is one continuous piece. This provides a strong, vise-like hold on the belt and distributes belt tension evenly across the entire belt width. The one-piece fastener strip also insures that there are no loose pieces to work themselves out of the belt and into the conveyed product. The straight splice obtained with a continuous strip of lacing also helps with hinge pin insertion.

Applications

  • Manufacturing assembly lines, food, package and parts handling, checkout counters and agricultural equipment.

P.I.W. (pounds per inch width)

  • Use with belts that are mechanically rated up to 200 PIW (maximum recommended tension range varies by lacing size.)

Installation Method

  • Requires only a hammer; no special tools needed. Unique, patented clips and round gauge rod act as an "extra pair of hands." For production splicing, Alligator belt lacing machines are offered.

Splicing Method

  • Alligator lacing is a continuous one-piece fastener strip, tailored to all standard belt widths. Lacing is secured with teeth that imbed lengthwise of the belt, providing a strong, vise-like attachment.

Pulley Diameter Range

  • Alligator lacing operates over a wide range of minimum pulley diameters from 1" to 14", depending on lacing size.

Metals Available

  • Steel - is the standard fastener material.
  • Stainless Steel - Type 316.

Fastener Profile

  • Low profile, one-piece design results in an exceptionally smooth joint.

Range

  • Operates on belts 1/32" to 1/2" thick.
