Designed for today’s light and middle-duty synthetic carcass belting, the ALLIGATOR Staple fastener utilises high tensile, stainless steel staple attachment, in conjunction with an extended plate design. This design separates the point of fastener penetration from the line of belt flexing to eliminate splice fatiguing (sawing) action at the point of attachment.
Staple fasteners are furnished in strips with a bridge between each fastener plate. This strip design prevents individual parts (as with belt hooks or teeth in other styles of fasteners) from getting into the product being conveyed. It also provides a stronger splice, greater resistance to impact damage and a smoother, unrippled joint that helps make hinge pin insertion easier.
Staples are hammer driven through the fastener and belt, working between the carcass fibres without severing them. The staples are then clinched cross-wire to the belt; in this way, belt tension does not pull against the staples and unclinch them.
