WCCO Belting recently introduced two new products — an angled cleat extension for its Raptor draper belting and a new belt design for belted chain assemblies.

The Wahpeton, N.D., company has patents pending on both products.

The angled cleat extension is designed to increase efficiency and output while reducing downtime from material buildup under the belt. It directs crops to the center of the Raptor draper belt and into the feeder house, successfully pulling material away from the cutter bar. The angled connection method creates a smooth, quiet transition of the draper belt on the roller.

The new belt design for chain assemblies improves the belt’s ability to move around the rollers, which reduces pressure on the splice. Low elongation in the fabric design reduces slippage and promotes steady tension during operation. In addition, sealed edges prevent moisture wicking into the belt carcass, which eliminates delamination.
