AIT Portable Heat Seal Tools for PFTE Belt Welding
AIT offers three models of portable heat seal tools for belt welding. Heated platen sizes of 1'' x 1'' and 1'' x 6'' for welding a belt with a one inch overlap, and platen size of 3'' x 12'' for welding a finger splice. Features include digital temperature control for precise operation up to 800° F @ 110V.
Welding films, insulated welding boards and other belt welding supplies are also available.
We stock 10, 14 & 16 mil PTFE in widths of 24'', 36'', 48'', 60'' & 72''. Available in standard anti-static black finish, or optional tan finish for high pressure fusing of light colored fabrics.
Extend the life of your belts and reduce static build up with TBC-3 Belt Cleaning Powder.
Belt Splicing Options
AIT offers PTFE belting for all models of fusing machines with several splicing options. For best performance, AIT recommends the "super smooth" seam. For extended belt life, AIT recommends reinforced edges. AIT is the exclusive worldwide manufacturer of belting for Astex, Simplex and Astechnologies fusing machines and heat transfer printers. For other models, please indicate the length, width and thickness, and we can provide a quotation. Standard PTFE material is 14 mil with a black, anti-static finish. Also available are 10 mil & 16 mil, and a tan finish for fusing white fabric.
This is a factory-seamed skived splice for PTFE belts for fusing machines, with virtually no variation in the thickness of the seam in relation to the thickness of the belt. The result when fusing is the best prevention of marks that can sometimes occur with light colored fabrics. SUPER SMOOTH PTFE belts are available for all models of Astex fusing machines. Reinforced edges are also available.
This is the standard PTFE belt splice, providing the most economical option available. ONE-INCH OVERLAP PTFE belts are available for all models of Astex fusing machines. AIT also supplies PTFE belt welding tools and belt welding film.
This is the strongest PTFE belt splice available, and is recommended for belt widths of 60" or more. Finger splice PTFE belts must be welded at the time the belt is installed to the fusing machine. A PTFE belt welding tool and other supplies are needed.
The Fabric Pin splice is used for all mesh input and exit conveyor belts for Astex fusing machines and Astex heat transfer presses.
This splice is an exceptionally strong metal splice used for canvas conveyor belts for some Astex fusing machines. Metal lacing is meshed together and joined by inserting a metal pin. This provides a flexible splice and enables the belt to be installed without taking the machine apart.
