Tapes, Belts & Straps

A. B. Carter, Inc. is a major supplier of spindle tapes and drive belts, light weight conveyor belts and pulling straps for almost any textile machine application. These products can be supplied “pre-assembled” to the customer’s specifications or may be sold in bulk with optional adhesive and bonding equipment for in-plant customer preparation. A. B. Carter, Inc. also manufactures and supplies Stainless Steel belting and high performance Counter Bands for carpet yarn heat-setting.


A. B. Carter, Inc. stocks several different types of spinning tapes to suit the varying machine designs and performance requirements for spindle drives. Tapes are available in any length and width with skived ends, pre-glued ends or can be made endless. Our patented joining system assures perfect end bonds with no variation in thickness or flexibility.

Optional Bonding Accessories

Cartabond tape bonding system: This portable device was designed specifically to produce high quality splices in our spindle drive tapes. This unit is available for 110V operation.



Mobile Power Cart: This mobile power cart was designed to offer safe and efficient use of the Cartabond in textile processing areas where power cords are inconvenient or difficult to use. This unit features a heavy duty battery/inverter/charging system which allows the technician continuous uninterrupted use of the bonder throughout the shift without charging.

Tape Bonding Solution: Specially designed solution to produce high quality joins in spinning tapes. This nylon synthetic adhesive will activate at 300°F to permanently bond the tape.

Cold Clamps: Designed for quick-setting the bond after the tape is removed from the bonder.
