Anaconda is a patented new product created by F.N. Sheppard® for high-speed conveying applications where precision tracking is essential. Anaconda is both a synchronous belt and a conveyor belt in one!
The unibody construction consists of an extruded urethane flat section and a offset helical drive section both reinforced with high strength Kevlar™ reinforcement. This homogeneous design not only provides precise low-noise indexing and accurate belt tracking, it also offers low-friction high-strength “wings” on either side of the drive teeth that glide smooth across your conveyor path using low energy.

|HOLE SHAPE ACTIONS|
|Various vacuum hole patterns provide positive holding power for light products such as paper, plastic film and non-woven fabrics.|
|STAGGERED HOLE||SQUARE HOLE|
|Hole size and pattern can be modified to meet the application demands. F.N. Sheppard has sophisticated perforating equipment to ensure accuracy and offer various shapes and patterns.||Standard patterns are available and holes can be perforated across entire belt with, including the tooth area.|
|Contouring with slots, grooves or pockets can be accommodated. These special designs allow for better vacuum control of the product being conveyed. |
F.N. Sheppard can machine any belt surface to precise tolerances. We can assist in designing the most effective belt for your application.
