Costacurta’s conveyor belts – both straight and curved (spiral conveyor belts) – are made of metal wires or flat wires and guarantee optimal transport of products in many different industrial processes, including those with highly critical operating conditions and temperatures of between -150°C and +1,150°C.
Conveyor belts are used in numerous industrial sectors: metalworking, food, pharmaceutical and packaging are the main ones but there are many more.
Depending on the operating conditions, characteristics, dimension and weight of the products transported, Costacurta can help its clients choose the best conveyor belt and material, using specific calculation programmes validated by the company’s long-standing experience as conveyor belt manufacturers.
The belts equipped with chains on edges or made of flat metal wire can be supplied with sprockets.
Depending on the applications and the clients’ specific needs, conveyor belts can have guard edges, dividers or flights.

Drive chains are used for the positive drive of the belt by means of sprockets and to ensure perfect centering of the belt. They are usually made of either carbon steel or stainless steel.
Guard edges are elements positioned at the edge of the belt to ensure that products do not fall off: they are normally made of metal plate or by bending the belt itself. They are generally supplied in the same material as the belt and are available in different heights.
Dividers separate the belt width into sections: they can be installed when the belt is being manufactured or, in some cases, they can be installed at a later stage.
Flights can be installed in the belt at the desired distance. They allow product drive and prevent it from moving, above all in the cases when the belt is not working on the flat.
This edge is obtained by bending the end of the connecting rod inside the spiral by 180°. This type of selvage is generally used to avoid welding the edges.
To obtain a stronger section, these selvages are obtained by increasing the number of loops close to the edges of the belt.
This edge is obtained by welding the spiral ends to the respective connecting rods.
These are obtained by bending the end of the connecting rod by 90° to hook to the subsequent connecting rod.
Welded ladder selvages
These are obtained by bending the end of the connecting rod by 90° to hook the adjacent connecting rod; the end of the hook is then welded onto itself.
Sprockets are transmission elements that are supplied (on request) with some types of conveyor belts or those with chains on edges.
Costacurta has a wide range of sprockets that can be made of different materials depending on the specific request (for example, with unfinished or finished bore, keyway and hole for fixing screw, etc.)
