3 Ways to Improve Form-Fill-Seal Belts

Throughout the packaging industry, many professionals rely on vertical form-fill-seal machines for diverse vending and bagging operations. These machines are essential for quickly and efficiently filling packages with different products and sealing them, and they need high-quality belting to deliver the ideal performance.

Today, there are several manufacturers of form-fill-seal machines, and during our decades-long tenure, Belt Corporation of America has supported many of these manufacturers with our specialty belting products. We have over 30 years of experience producing and supplying custom belting for OEMs and aftermarket distributors alike; as such, we have become proficient at improving the quality of form-fill-seal belts with many strategies. A few of them are below:

DuraTaq™ and other High-Performance Compounds:

We utilize various materials to meet the exact needs of the application. For form-fill-seal belting, our engineers use DuraTaq™, a proprietary material made especially with heavy-duty applications in mind. DuraTaq™ provides excellent grip and slip prevention as well as enhanced durability. Another example of a high-performance compound is our Blue Anti-Glaze rubber compound. This resilient compound offers abrasion resistance necessary in a form-fill-seal application, as well as resistance to many chemicals.

Homogenous Molded, Truly Endless Covers:

For uniform wear surfaces, our form-fill-seal belts are fitted with homogenous molded covers without any hard spots. Molded covers are abrasion resistant, highly flexible, and have no seams or splices—these features enable the belts to deliver increased performance.
