Habasit conveyor and processing belts offer a large variety of application-driven cover materials and surface structures in several industry-suitable colors. The materials and designs are selected to cope with a broad range of application requirements, including resistance to wear or chemical agents, and to high or low temperatures. Furthermore, they maintain excellent stress-strain behavior through the use of carefully selected tension members.

While the term "conveyor belt" is used for belts that convey goods from one point to another, the name “processing belts” is used for belts that also fulfill key functions in the manufacturing process. Typical examples of processing belts include printing blankets for textile printing, or prepress belts in particle board production.


Habasit Cleandrive positive drive belts reduce the risk of contamination due to product waste  and residues in gaps, hinges and dead spots. At the same time, they offer the mechanical and chemical advantages of plastic modular belts. They improve hygiene conditions and are particularly appropriate for industrial food processing.


Habasit plastic modular belts are assembled in a bricklay pattern. This feature allows the construction of virtually any width and length. Our custom-made belts are available with flights and side guards as an integral part of the belt, and are secured with full-width plastic hinge rods.


Designed, produced, and serviced by the worldwide leader in belting, the HabaCHAIN range offers top-class innovation and quality combined with excellent reliability and cost-efficiency.

HabaCHAIN products are available in both straight-running and radius/side-flexing versions, and run on most systems and sprockets on the market today. They are fully compatible with industry standards, making them ideal for retrofitting.


HabaSYNC timing belts support conveying and linear movement applications where optimum performance requires precise product placement and component positioning. High-quality materials coupled with our state-of-the-art manufacturing process and years of experience ensure innovative solutions tailored to your needs.

HabaSYNC belts are generally used in applications where exact product placement and precise component positioning is required. Synchronization is achieved by meshing the belt teeth into a matching similar-pitch pulley. Our timing belts are available in imperial and metric pitches.


Habasit power transmission belts are tailor-made to suit specific industry and application needs or machine designs. We offer three different traction layer materials, used by three different belt concepts, for open drive, tangential drive, multiple pulley drive, live roller drive, and double-sided power transmission.


Machine tapes are central to manufacturing operations. They convey, speed up, slow down, position and, when required, fold the paper material processed.

Habasit's comprehensive range of Hamid, polyamide and polyurethane machine tapes are manufactured with abrasion-resistant NBR covers or other application-oriented surface materials. They provide the industry with effective and comprehensive belting solutions that are extremely reliable, have constant grip, and offer long service lives.


Habasit spindle tapes have been setting the benchmarks for spindle tapes for decades, and are in demand by customers all around the world. Habasit W-spindle tapes were developed through intensive cooperation with a leading machine manufacturer with bases in Switzerland, Japan, China and India. They feature the ability to handle spindle speeds over 20,000 rpm, no fiber fly accumulation, and a long and reliable service life.


Habasit offers a comprehensive range of folder-gluer belts made of different materials for various box folding applications. The belts provide excellent reversed bending properties, high abrasion resistance, outstanding dimensional stability, constant and safe grip, no marking of the transported goods, and precise folding. In short: best-in-class performance.


Seamless belts are custom-engineered products for specific application needs. They are made of endless-woven substrate components like polyester, nylon, cotton, Kevlar or Nomex, etc. The substrate is impregnated with an elastomer, such as neoprene, nitrile, EPDM, polyurethane, Hypalon, silicone, or other special compounds. The materials used depend on the application


Habasit round belts are highly flexible and directionally adjustable, and multi-directional for angular gears. They can be used for conveying as well as for driving applications. As a result of their elasticity, round belts can be installed without a tensioning device. This allows compact machine designs. In addition, the elasticity acts as a security element by reducing shocks in case of brief overloads. Round belts are highly resilient.


Wear strips, sliding supports and guides, as well as curved and straight tracks that are extruded or machined, are used in many industries, including bottling, packaging, mechanics, chemistry, pharmaceutics, ceramics, glass, food processing, paper, etc. These items represent an ideal complement to modular belts (HabasitLINK), slat and conveyor chains (HabaCHAIN), and timing belts (HabaSYNC).


Thermoplastic profiles and cleats are primarily used in general conveying on inclining or declining transport in linear movement, or in applications where transversal forces occur.

Profiles can be added to conveyor and processing belts, as well as to HabaSYNC timing belts,  to assist conveying and product placement. Cleats, tracking guides, and side walls are available in a variety of sizes and materials that offer enhanced features for your custom design. 


To support the effective and efficient fabrication of our belting products, Habasit offers a broad range of tools and devices to meet our customers’ needs. The range covers the requirements of in-house fabrication (standard series and specialties), as well as those of on-site installations of our belts and tapes
