Ready Set Staples
Designed for today’s light & middle-duty synthetic carcass belting, the ALLIGATOR® Staple fastener utilizes 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.
Staples fastener 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 products being conveyed.
It also provides a stronger splice, greater resistance to impact damage and a smoother, unrippled joint that helps make hinge pin insertions easier. Staples are hammer driven through the fastener and belt, working between carcass fibers without damaging them. The staples are then clinched cross-wise to the belt; in this way, belt tension does not pull against the staples to unclinch them.
