AL BINO INDUSTRIAL BELTING
YOUR "ANY-SIZE" DRIVE BELTS SUPPLIER
Al Bino is your go-to source for all flat drive belts.
Modern belt choices provide a very strong, flexible, smooth, and vibration-free service. There are materials available to be used on pulley diameters as small as 3/16”. Leather is still offered where the desire is to preserve the machine's aesthetic antiquity and/or machines without tension adjustment. For machines with tension adjustment, a rubber/nylon combination offers the best friction surface, and tension is set just once.
The choice of leather with nylon and/or fabric would apply to applications that require a soft start, (some slippage but without the stretch). There are a variety of PVC combination materials available and used for flat belts. Belts that are glued endless are strong and dependable. Belt connections have changed from the old brutal laced versions to those that are kinder to the pulleys. Whatever your application, you will appreciate the various materials available today. Call us at (610) 670 1603 or use our contact page to reach us today.
Some applications that would use truly endless belts:
Balancer Grinder (tool post and surface) Wood planer/shaper Capstan drives Roll moulder Core winder - converters (twist belt)
Stringer Router Shear Tenoner Power hacksaw Armature lathe
SAWMILL***YATES PLANER***VANCE PLANER***CABLE DRIVEN WELL DRILLER BELTS:
These belts use the Compass L and Compass M, and can easily take 14 weeks to make and ship.
Many calls we receive occur when our customers suffer an unexpected belt break. Aside from the fact that all belt driven machines should have a spare belt handy, it would make good sense to have a less pricey belt that will perform like a spare tire, and save you from losses and down time while you await a new Compass belt order.
When your Compass belt arrives, keep your “spare” handy to ensure your operations continue to run smoothly, and thereby being rewarded for having a good backup plan.
From replacement belts to custom prototype belts, we utilize today’s modern technology. There is no need to leave the comfort of your home or office. Our phone consultation is free, and at most may require a photo, but usually, just a few questions posed to you regarding your machine/equipment will harness our years of education, knowledge, experience, and cutting edge solutions to get you up and running fast.
Preserving the antiquity of a museum piece? No problem, we cover that too.
We offer abrasive belts, - all sizes/grits, and others that are hard to find. We also provide belts for diverse applications such as the Ikegai lathe, Arter surface grinder, Wheelabrator blaster, Klinker farm blower, Bullard VTL, Sheeter, and others.
We offer coated abrasives in belts and disks.
Looking for food grade belts for your bakery. confectionery, or pharmaceutical needs? The thermoplastic silicone belt has a non-stick carrying surface, and is designed where temperature, abrasion and chemical resistance are required. It is cleanable and UV resistant.
These silicone belts can be spliced (endless) or laced, as needed. The belt features adhesive top and fabric top surfaces.
It is not necessary for you to know exactly what you need. We can help you with that based on our questions to you and on our experience. We enjoy helping you find what you need so bring us the unusual and your prototypes!
Many of our belts are custom made. We tackle unusual requests such as making a cushioning belt that fits inside an abrasive belt. The cushioning belt is made slightly shorter so that when is is tensioned, its outside length will equal the inside of the abrasive belt.
The photo here shows TWO belts; the black belt fits inside the yellow (paper thin) abrasive belt.
It is frustrating to order a belt and not have it fit. Please take time to read the appropriate section of our "How to measure for your machine belt". “Measure twice, cut once” works for us, and measuring twice with utmost care will give you the assurance your belt will arrive perfectly sized for your machine.

Machines without tension adjustment, and/or to retain antiquity for shows/museum may require leather. Other machines may do well with nitrile or various light to heavy duty ply construction with friction surfaces and covers, as required.
