The new line of Zeroseam belts is manufactured using a moldless production process developed by Nitta. It allows for manufacturing rubber covered endless belts without joint, but with freely configurable length according to customer specifications. This is an advantage over the existing lineup of seamless belts, which is limited by available production sizes and surface materials.
Due to its seamless structure, the Zeroseam belt offers high flexibility, even under low temperature conditions. The belt consists of a structured rubber surface and a polyamide fabric and has a special cord as its tension member. The surface material of structured rubber, possessing high grip and high abrasion resistance, is produced according to Nittas in house formulation.
For its launch, Zeroseam belts are available in three configurations with different thickness and tension classes, with more belt types under development.
