Wire Belt Company’s Plate Link belt features an extremely robust design and high load capacity, making it the perfect choice for arduous engineering processes such as presswork, die-casting and forging.

Plate Link Belt

  • Transport
  • Drainage
  • Sorting
  • Elevating
  • De-Elevating
  • Waste Treatment
  • Blanching

Plate Link’s hinged slats enable it to be subject to the external forces commonplace in engineering processes, whilst maintaining a superior belt life in comparison to less robust conveyor belt designs. By fitting high load capacity side chains to each Plate Link belt, Wire Belt Company offers a conveyor solution that will both increase production capacity and reduce the risk of downtime.

  • All specifications available can be supplied with side plates and cross flights in various combinations of height and design, to your specification enabling elevation or product separation as required by the application
  • We can supply an extensive range of sprockets with these specifications
  • Perforations are available on some slat sizes for applications requiring drainage such as swarf and chip removal and recycling.
  • Belts are available in mild steel and 304 and 316 stainless steels with a number of surface finish options including galvanising, bright zinc plating and Teflon coating.
  • Complete Plate Link conveyor solutions, including declining and straight running applications, are available from Wire Belt.  Please contact our Technical Sales team for further information.

Side Plates and Cross Flights

All available specifications can be supplied with side plates and cross flights in various combinations of height and design enabling elevation or product separation as required by the application.

Side Plate Layout Options

Chain Edge Options

With welded washer

This is the most common and economical style of finish to a chain edge belt and comprises of a central plate carried through the system by means of edge chains with carrier cross rods through both plate and edge chains.  The cross rods are finished at the outside chain edges with a welded washer

With Cotter Pin & Washer

Although less economical this type of assembly allows the customer or service personnel the ability to replace the edge drive chains when the plate and rods are still serviceable.  The assembly comprises of a central plate carried through the system by means of edge chains with carrier cross rods through both plate and edge chains.  The cross rods are finished at the outside with a drilled hole to allow the fitment of a washer & cotter pin.  It also allows the repair replacement of sections of belt without the need to grind off rod heads and weld back together.

Fixing Method

All available specifications can be supplied with side plates and cross flights in various combinations of height
and design enabling elevation or product separation as required by the application.
