Belt clamping is a cheap way to obtain different belt length from a same mold, which can reduce
the cost when the mold is reused for different products. The idea is to cut the molded belts into
modules and, then joining modules together, thereby being able to modify the belt length by
cutting the modules or adding a new ones. The idea is already done in common belts with teeth,
but the challenge has been clamping a belt which has no teeth and has a continuous profile,
the poly-V belt.
