* Belt width on Wardcraft steel hinge belts is measured between the side wings, as shown on the inside pages, unlike some other manufacturers whose belt width includes side wings. Accurate measurement of the width of the belt between and to the outside of side wings is critical to the manufacture a correct replacement belt.
Unique features of Wardcraft’s heavy duty hinged steel bells permit continuous conveyor operation under demanding conditions and minimize downtime when belt repairs may be required.
Wardcraft steel Conveyor belts withstand heat, shock and abusive environment, and run in coolant/water/oil agents. Application include the conveying of stampings, forgings, and scrap metal, and the removal of all types of chips (cast iron, steel, aluminum, copper, brass, bronze…). These belts are also used In quench conveyors.
The belt’s overlapping and interlocking side wings form an integral surface that gives added strength to the belt assembly. The overlapping wings, made of special heavy gauge steel, provide a strong inner surface that resists the jamming of parts or material being conveyed.
There is a close tolerance fit between the apron shaft (axle) and the wings through which the shaft passes. The wings are installed on the shafts and can be separately replaced, if necessary. There are no welds to drill out or grind down to disassemble the wings. The retainer can be simply removed and the damaged wing replaced in a few minutes.
Wardcraft’s hinged steel conveyor belt has a 2-1/2″ (64 mm) pitch and is available in any width from 3″ (76 mm) to 60″ (1524 mm) in 1″ (25 mm) increments, at no extra charge, and in any length desired. Warcraft’s standard belt can replace Jorgensen and New London belts, and can be modified to replace Mayfran, Prab, Transcon and most other makes (total belt replacement is required).
Wardcraft also offers cleats with centers spaced in 2-1/2″ (64 mm) increments, and sprockets with either a plain bore, or bored and keyed/bushed to your specifications.
Plain, pimpled, or pimpled and perforated belt surfaces are available to suit your application. In addition, a divided belt with vertical lanes can be provided as desired.
Side wing heights (forn apron surface to the top of the side wings) are 1.12″ (38 mm) for the standard profile belt assembly, and 15/16″ (24 mm) for the low profile model.
Wardcraft’s low profile conveyor belt assembly is used where clearance is a problem; for example, in certain applications on cold heading and screw machines. The unit is available with 15/16″ (24 mm) high cleats, and exposed side wing belt construction.
An optional one-piece, full-width apron strengthens the belt assembly against center pressures and shock deflections. The continuous, uninterrupted surface also eliminates jamming of small parts that might occur on segmented belts. Maximum width for continuous surface is 36 inches.
Pimpled surface belt for handling parts in oily condition, or with oily film.
Plain surface for general parts handling applications.
Pimpled and perforated surface for applications involving oily parts and chips where drainability is desirable.
Heavy-duty cast iron Sprockets are available.
“SHP” 2.5 in. pitch, plastic belt was designed for heavy duty conveyor applications and to replace steel slat top chains, drag chains and other technologies being used for high wear or heavy duty applications. Wardcraft can a plastic belt as a direct replacement for common 2 ½” Pitch Steel Hinge conveyors
