    Part # Product # Description


    We provide a wide range of secondary fabrication possibilities to meet your application needs. Whether grinding edges and surfaces to tight tolerances, punching and machining holes and slots, or CNC machining of three dimensional contours, we can provide a complete solution.

    • Broad range of customization options, including unusual shapes, contours and configurations.
    • Precision grinding for tighter tolerances.
    • Holes, slots, and any CNC machined shape in the belt surface.
    • Combination of primary tooling and secondary machining can achieve any design objective.

    • V-guides in various sizes can be applied to either side of the belt.


    Gates TPU belts can be spliced in a host of different ways, allowing you to choose the option that fits your needs best. Belts can be quickly spliced with our industry leading PosiLace™ or other mechanical fasteners as well as the standard finger and butt welds.

    • PosiLace™ prevents the ingress of microbes, is easy to clean, allows for the use of belt scrapers, includes a unique self-locking pin, and enables the removal and replacement of the belt as often as desired. This pin fastened method meets low to medium load requirements without welding.
    • Thermally welding two prepared ends together allows for a seamless finish that minimizes the potential for bacteria growth. Several welding techniques are available including finger splicing, split tooth, and butt weld.


    Perfect fit, easy installation, and simple removal - that’s the quality you’ll find with Gates TPU sprockets. Gates TPU offers a wide variety of sprockets to fit your food processing application. Sprockets are available in metric and imperial shafts for all of our Food Belt products. If your application demands non-standard sprockets, Gates TPU offers customizable system components with our Made-to-Order engineering services.
