Poly o rings are made by welding together poly cord. A welding tool, cord cutter, and a gripper are used in the process. The poly cord can be welded onto the conveyor system without taking the line shaft apart. However, the conveyor belt system will need to be stopped during the welding process.
We only recommend welding poly cord if you have experience doing so. It can be a complicated process.
We offer two welding kit options:
- Standard welding tool: teflon-coated tip, 40 watts with a 3/16” stem. It can weld round conveyor belts from 1/16” to ½” in diameter. The heating temperature is between 425 °F to 475°F with the target being 450°F.
- Cord cutter: cuts poly cord ends flat making it easier to weld conveyor belts flush.
- Gripper: made of black anodized aluminum. It holds the poly cord ends ensuring consistent alignment.
- Trim knife: cuts off excess poly cord once welded.
Heavy Duty Kit:
- Heavy duty welding tool: teflon-coated tip, 150 watts. It can weld round conveyor belts from 5/16” to 1.25” in diameter. It can weld flat belts up to 2” in width.
- Lowe cord cutter: cuts poly cord ends flat or angled making it easier to weld conveyor belts flush.
- Silver anodized aluminum gripper: can hold round and flat cord ends ensuring consistent alignment.
- Hand drill: used when welding reinforced cord.
