The AT-1201 is a preparing device for skiving of belts up to a width of 1200 mm and a thickness of 6.5 mm. The belt is clamped in a robust frame and precisely held in position. A grinding disk that is adjustable both in tilt (to control skiving length) and height (to control the thickness of the remaining lip) is then continuously run over the belt end, grinding it to the desired wedge shape.
Feed of the grinding head is adjustable in a wide range to match various belt materials. The machine is of "open throat" design, i.e. wider belts can be skived in several steps. The AT-1201 is especially suitable for high volume fabrication of conveyor belts with Thermofix joint.
