Conveyor belts

Costacurta S.p.A.-VICO is an Italian company specialized in the design and manufacture of metal components for industry and architecture, serving markets worldwide.

Costacurta has gained consolidated experience in the design engineering and manufacturing of metal conveyor belts for applications that require temperatures ranging from approx. -150°C to +1.150°C. The conveyor belts are used in numerous industrial processes and sectors, from metallurgical engineering, to pharmaceuticals to food processing.

The conveyor beltsVICO-MB is a ‘balanced’ belt and consists of alternating right and left-hand wire spirals, connected together by pre-crimped connecting rods. This is classified according to the pitch and internal spacing of the spiral wire, the diameter of the wire and rod and the type of selvage. VICO-MB can have welded or ladder selvages or ladder welded selvages. It can also be supplied with driving chains and guard edges and reinforced selvages. VICO-MB belts are mainly made of carbon steel, galvanized steel and stainless steels.

The conveyor belts VICO-TU consists of closely wound alternating right and left-hand wire spirals connected together by straight connecting rods. This is classified according to the pitch and internal spacing of the spiral wire, the diameter of the wire and rod and the type of selvage. VICO-TU can have welded or ladder selvages. It can also be supplied with driving chains and guard edges and rods with special surface finishes. VICO-TU belts are mainly made of carbon steel, galvanized steel and stainless steels. 

The conveyor belts VICO-MP consists of very closely woven alternating right and left-hand wire spirals, with each spiral being crossed by three or more straight or pre-crimped connecting rods. This is classified according to the pitch and internal spacing of the spiral wire, the diameter of the wire and rod and the type of selvage. Welded selvages are normally used for this type of belt. VICO-MP can also be supplied with driving chains and guard edges and crimped rods. VICO-MP belts are mainly made of carbon steel, galvanized steel and stainless steels.

The conveyor belts VICO-TUG consists of wire links connected by means of connecting rods. It is usually sprocket or wheel driven. Special chains can also be mounted to suit particular applications or specifications. VICO-TUG can be made by tightening the links, or by placing spacers between the links, such as washers, sleeves or small springs. It is classified according to the pitch of the links and the rods, their diameter and the type of selvage. Welded selvages are normally used for VICO-TUG belts. They can also be supplied with driving chains and guard edges. VICO-TUG belts are mainly made of carbon steel, galvanized steel and stainless steels.

The conveyor belts VICO-REL® consists of elements formed by wire links, locked together by electro-welding one or more cross wires, connected by means of connecting rods. It is usually sprocket or wheel driven. Special chains can also be mounted to suit particular applications or specifications. The link pitch may vary according to the of the product being transported. VICO-REL® is classified according to the pitch of the links and the rods, their diameter and the type of selvage. Welded selvages are normally used for VICO-REL® belts. They can also be supplied with driving chains and guard edges. VICO-REL® belts are mainly made of carbon steel, galvanized steel and stainless steels.

The conveyor belts VICO-TR is made of flat bars and is sprocket driven. It is characterized by a large free area, ease of cleaning and flexibility in use from –150°C to 550°C. It also guarantees considerable reliability when working because it remains perfectly centred thanks to its sprocket wheel drive. VICO-TR belts are classified according to the pitch of the flat bar bends and of the rods, the diameter of the rods and the of the flat bars. VICO-TR belts can be supplied with button head welded connecting rods or rods with clinched edges. VICO-TR belts are mainly made of carbon steel, galvanized steel and stainless steels. For the driving of the VICO-TR belts standard cast iron or carbon steel sprockets are normally used, and are normally available in stock. On request, the sprockets can be made of AISI 304, AISI 316, Nylon, UHMW 1000, etc. The sprockets are supplied with an unmachined axial bore and with the hub d according to the diameter of the shaft used.

The conveyor belts VICO-RC is made of high tensile strength stainless steel or carbon steel wires and is driven by sprockets. The high flexibility of this belt allows the use of very small shaft. VICO-RC belts are classified according to the weave width and weave spacing, the diameter of the wire, the internal and external hook widths and the type of selvage. They can have simple loop or double loop end selvages. VICO-RC belts are mainly made of spring steel and stainless steels.

These are so-called strand conveyor belts. They are woven belt type with weft wires shaped and welded at the ends. The weft wires, having diameter usually larger than the warp strands, are relatively thin. This type of conveyor belt is perfectly flat, with high transversal stability, especially with weft wires perflectly straightened. VICO-Strand belts are mainly made of carbon steel, galvanized steel and stainless steels.

These are so-called strand conveyor belts. In VICO-WR the warp is made of groups of two or three or four strand wires (each group is at a long distance from the next). The weft wires, having diameter usually larger than the warp strands, are relatively thin. This type of conveyor belt is perflectly flat, with high transversal stability, especially with weft wires perfectly straightened. VICO-WR belts are mainly made of carbon steel, galvanized steel and stainless steels.

The conveyor belts VICO-Slat is made of shaped perforated plates hinged together using connecting rods. VICO-Slat belts can be made with different shapes, are normally chain driven and can be supplied with guard edges. VICO-Slat (perforated) belts are mainly made of carbon steel, galvanized steel and stainless steels.

Costacurta can help its customers select the right type of conveyor belt – thanks to specific calculation programsvalidated by wide experience in supplying and materials – on the basis of operating conditions, and the shape, and weight of the products to be conveyed.
