The VICO-REL® belt consists of elements formed by wire links, locked together by electro-welding one or more cross wires, connected by means of connecting rods. It is usually sprocket or wheel driven. Special chains can also be mounted to suit particular applications or specifications. The link pitch may vary according to the size of the product being transported. VICO-REL® is classified according to the pitch of the links and the rods, their diameter and the type of selvage. Welded selvages are normally used for VICO-REL® belts. They can also be supplied with driving chains and guard edges. VICO-REL® belts are mainly made of carbon steel, galvanized steel and stainless steels.
