Causes and prevention methods of abrasive belt waste

Release Date:2023-09-21 16:14

Manufacturing abrasive belts requires a range of raw materials to produce and ensuring stable production quality and smooth material processing is the goal of all manufacturers. However, the quality of abrasive belts can sometimes be compromised due to a range of factors.

In this comprehensive guide, we will delve into the causes behind abrasive belt waste and discuss effective prevention methods.

1. Bell-mouth Formation


- Unequal angles during oblique cutting.

- Misalignment during jointing.

- Inequality in the width of abrasive cloth blanks.

- Uneven striping.


- Adhere strictly to operational procedures.

- Exercise meticulous care during operations.

2. Excessive Thickness at Joints


- Excessive grinding edge thickness.

- Over-thick jointing surfaces.

- Application of overly viscous and thick adhesive.

- Insufficient pressure during bonding.


- Strictly follow operational procedures.

- Exercise precision in operations.

3. Inconsistent Seam Width


- Misalignment during striping, leading to an S-shaped longitudinal edge.


- Ensure straight and precise striping.


4. Joint Breakage


- Uneven application or partial absence of adhesive at the joint.

- Insufficient pressure, time, or temperature during compression.

- Excessive tension during use.

- Overly intense grinding pressure during use.

- Excessive thickness or hardness at the joint.


- Adhere strictly to operational procedures.

- Ensure correct utilization.

5. Excessive Extension


- Improper selection of abrasive belt, leading to excessive tension.

- Inadequate pre-stretching during raw cloth treatment.

- Inappropriate or mishandled treatment agents for raw cloth.

- Relates to the material of the raw cloth.


- Understand and implement proper usage requirements.

- Strictly adhere to operational procedures.

- Make the right choice of raw cloth.

By implementing these prevention methods, manufacturers can significantly reduce abrasive belt waste during production. This leads to higher-quality products and increased efficiency in various industries where precision and reliability are paramount. Consistent quality control and adherence to best practices are essential in ensuring the reliability and functionality of abrasive belts.
