The AF-42/0 is a preparing device for 10/120 Flexproof finger geometry. It is designed mainly for HabaDRIVE power transmission belts up to 40 mm width.
The belt is securely clamped on a movable carriage. This carriage is positioned in steps of 10 mm (finger pitch) under a die-cutting head. The die-cutting head with two knife blades is then actuated with an eccentric lever, providing enough force to cut even the strongest aramide fabrics with ease. The fingers are thus cut step by step, ensuring the most precise geometry of the cut and, therefore, the optimum tensile strength of the resulting joint.
