ATN Connection Kit

The ATN Connecting Kit comes in 3 versions. The standard "C" version works specifically with ATN10, ATN12.7,  ATN10K6 and ATN12.7K6. The "DC" and "DC PRO" versions also accommodate ANT20 timing belts

  1. The "C" connection has screws and plates that make a strong connection, but the plate is not flush with the belt.
  2. The "DC" connection has slight recess in the belt back that allows the plates to lay flush with the belt back.
  3. The "DC PRO" connection is a flush connection but is also suitable for mounting profiles in the connection area.

PinLock Timing Belt Connecting Kit

The BRECOflex CO., L.L.C. PinLock timing belt offers a viable alternative to spliced and welded belts for fast field installation. Pinlock belts have precise water-jet-cut fingers to guarantee both ends of the belt can be easily joined during on-site assembly. The optimized finger splices ensure equal load distribution, thereby giving the connection a high load-bearing capacity. The CNC-milled bore paths are “pin straight” and the rust-proof threaded pins are easy to tighten using a cordless screwdriver. PinLock timing belts give you a secure connection and can also be used with timing belt backings and profiles. It is an easy to use and long-lasting solution for a wide variety of machines.

The Field Welder

A Field Welder is the ideal solution for timing belt field connections when you need a connection that matches the strength of a factory weld. It can weld belts in all pitches and widths that BRECOflex manufactures. It also does double sided belts. If you have belts in more than one size, the weld plates are easily changed. The total time for welding is approximately 30 minutes. Belts are shipped with finger spliced ends. You can find more information about the field welder and assembly instructions here.

Belt Lock Connecting Kit

At belt lock connection works with T10 and AT10 pitch timing belts in conveyor applications. The Timing Belt Locks are compatible with standard AT10 and T10 belts and pulleys for direct replacement. Timing Belt Locks are available in widths of 32, 50, 75, and 100mm. Similar to ATN, the Belt Lock comes in a standard or deep connection.
