The ATN Timing Belt's Many Uses

The ATN Convertible Timing Belt System

The ATN Convertible Timing Belt is the most advanced timing belt system for stepping, indexing and conveying applications that require profiles. BRECOflex CO.,L.L.C.’s unique timing belt concept allows the customer to attach, interchange, or reconfigure timing belts in house or in the field with a multitude of profiles. The great advantage, in addition to its versatility, is that the user can quickly and easily reconfigure the profiles using simple hand tools without having to remove or replace the timing belt. The system is made to accommodate the changing requirements of your applications. It is available in 25mm, 50mm,75mm and 100mm widths. These belts are made of the same abrasion resistant and durable polyurethane as our other BRECOflex CO., L.L.C. precision timing belts.

There are several ways to use ATN

The versatility of the ATN timing belt is not just in its convertible profile system but in the optional ways you can use the belt.

The ATN connecting kit with convertible profiles

There are three versions of the ATN Field Connecting Kit. However, to take full advantage of everything ATN has to offer, one would use the connecting kit Version "DC PRO" (continue reading below for more on versions). This option enables the user the ease of a fast field connection and the configurable profiles.

Not everyone requires a field connection so our manufacturing team can factory weld your belt and punch holes per your specifications so that you can attach profiles as you require.

ATN's tooth profile is the regular AT Pitch belt so if you are looking for an ATN10, ATN12.7 or ATN20 that you don't have to disassemble your machine to install then the connecting kit Version "C" or "DC" is the way to go.

Assembling The ATN Connecting Kit

The ATN Convertible Timing Belt System allows for mechanically “closing” the belt. It comes in different versions which adds to the unique versatility of this system.  It features precisely cut finger-spliced ends that fit together enabling the user to easily screw the steel plates in place. The finished belt becomes the ideal solution for conveying applications, particularly for prototyping profile configurations.
