Maintenance – Belt edges

The edges of your steel belt were rounded and polished during production in our works. Damages to the belt edges can occur for example by stuck rollers on the machine. Small, but also bigger notches are potential cracking nuclei and shall therefore be eliminated as soon as possible. It is recommended to regularly check the belt’s edges for obvious visible damage respectively for notches that can be felt with a finger-nail. Any such notches shall be removed by filing or polishing.
