We are able to manufacture a wide range of belts on over 60 weaving machines. The common standard weaves are complemented with various technologies of narrow/wide (called tapered weaving), to weaving of partial-elastic straps to tube and jacquard weave technology.
For webbing straps in the widths of 3 to max. 120 mm, we are able to supply you either from stock or manufacture small series way below 10,000 m. It depends on many factors to determine which minimum quantities we can manufacture from. Sweeping statements cannot be made in this case.
We currently have an assortment of approx. 200 articles in the "technical belt" range. We are often able to find the suitable item for your project in this variety.
The raw materials we use are polyester, polypropylene, polyamide and the natural fibres jute and cotton. These are used here for the yarn types multifilament, monofilament, coated and splice yarn. Countless options from which we can create a product for you result from the above variations and the associated yarn titres.
Add to this the great colour range for polypropylene belts and the option to colour white polyester belts subsequently. Customers in the promotional merchandise sector value our large standard range with short delivery times.
Special PES webbing straps can be further developed with an additional thermal process. Defined temperature ranges affect the straps over a precisely-specified time period and change the molecular base structure of the fibre. Using this effect, we can shape the belts even more specifically for the application purpose.
We evaluate separately which applications this makes sense for. There are scenarios where we recommend further thermal finishing in any case.
"Cold" cutting of webbing straps makes only sense for natural fibre belts since no welded seam can be formed in this case. Artificial belts are normally thermally cut (a special form of thermal cutting will be introduced in the next section).
A very hot blade creates a welded seam on the webbing strap edge and the combination of warp and weft thread no longer opens, which means that the belt no longer frays when used normally. This work step is the basis of every finished belt and is therefore carried out almost completely automatically on high-performance machines.
Depending on the product & lengths, tolerances of +/-2 bis +/- 15 mm are necessary - talk to our staff prior to product development.
Perforating webbing straps (e.g. safety straps for ladders, sample book carry straps or roof arch belts ) is a specialist area. In the past, the material was "pushed" away using a heated mandrel. The main issue was the resulting thickening on the perforated hole edge, which made flush screwing/riveting harder.
Now, with the use of an ultrasound punch of 2.0 mm to 10.0 mm, the material is punched out cleanly leaving a slight weld seam. Thanks to structurally identical ultrasound cutting technology in the same machine, you therefore achieve perfect cutting and perforation results for your belt in one work step.
However, this cutting technology with minimal weld seam is not suitable for every belt and every application.
Not all belt applications can be completed using thermal cutting and ultrasound cutting. Especially if the cut edges include radii (e.g. rounded ends, different angles) or if the holes have shapes (long holes or ovals).
For these projects we can use our laser cutters. We recommend making early initial contact with us to remove potential obstacles as early as development since these technologies require very special machine setups and programming.
Cutting samples on the original materials have to be made first so we can work on a quotation. Turnaround times for laser cutting differ significantly from product to product depending on goods and cutting area.
For very complex contour cuttings for belt systems, we can create a perfect fit using laser cutting or create absolutely precise cuttings with various position markers.
We have a range of machine configurations which work with different sewing threads. We can trim every seam perfectly to the visual appearance and performance required by you from simple base seam appearances to a wide range of special seam appearances to single stitch programmed seams.
Fixed base seams such as two times and three times quilted seam or cross-seam are sufficient to achieve very good strength. Sewing machines with a sewing area of 120 x 200 mm allow us to create very special sewing programs for you - single-stitch programmed.
Long-standing experience in all industrial and leisure sector fields helps us to quickly select the right seam for your strap.
We try to cycle ideal sewing sequences for volume work or identical parts. Some special machines have already been invented for this purpose. Light barrier-monitored sewing systems for webbing straps are not available from stock. Add to this software requirements for monitoring sewing yarn on the upper thread and bobbin thread as well as seam quality monitoring.
We only work with external partners in order to perfect entire machine concepts including the necessary software. With you as our customer, we discuss the individual production concepts and product requirements prior to completion of the development in order to achieve a savings potential across the run time as well as product safety using a special machine.
We have a base range of packaging available in order to supply our webbing straps safely to our end customers. Structured storage systems ensure a quick overview and fast commissioning of your order. Administration of annual call orders as well as weekly deliveries for series productions are daily standard processes. Our variable storage system can cope easily with customers' seasonal specific capacity fluctuations.
Web-EDI applications, VDA transport labels and barcodes on our webbing strap packaging can be implemented individually for every customer. We look after different industrial sectors with your relevant special requirements.
