Custom Cut and Molded Parts

Experience , innovation and technical leadership have come together at Shipp Belting to create its newest product capability: CUSTOM CUT PARTS. Precise shapes are cut from any specification in inventory of over 300 different belting styles. Virtually any shape can be cut in a single step with an edge quality that usually requires no secondary finishing.


  • Latest cutting technology
  • Waterjet
  • Parts can be made from any material in inventory of over 300 specifications
  • Highest precision and craftsmanship

Shipp's Capabilities

Designed for Precision and Versatility

  • Cutting is accomplished by a software-controlled robotic motion system. An infinite variety of shape-cutting is possible
  • A wide range of materials and dimensions can be cut using a precise waterjet machine tool that provides precision when tolerances are critical.
  • Exceptional edge quality is produced without inducing heat affected zones or mechanical stress. Raw materials maintain their structural integrity and deburring is usually not required.

Materials Used for Shipp's Cut Part

Flexible and accurate, the waterjet system cuts with a stream of ultra high pressure water, rather than shearing or heat, producing an exceptional edge quality. Cut parts are being made from rubber, silicone, PVC, urethane, foam rubber, Plexiglas, vinyl, leather and woven nylon, to name just a few.

Cut Parts Products Made by Shipp

Shipp can machine high volume, short run, or prototype cut parts. Examples of our parts, made from a variety of materials, include seals, bumpers, gaskets, washers, shims, liners, pads, spacers and dampeners. Edges can be cut at any angle between 90 and 45.

Shipp's Perforations (Waterjet, Drill or Punch)

Our experience in creating intricate stepped perforation patterns in conveyor belts fits well with the precision needed to produce custom cut parts. Shipp's die cutting and hole punching expertise has accounted for much of its superiority in belting fabrications, either as a step process, or as an end in itself. Perforated belts and some of their applications include the following:

  • Vacuum Applications which call for clean, clear holes allowing proper suction.
  • Sizing Belts commonly found in sorting operations promoting accurate separation.
  • Bolt Holes precisely located assuring tight fit and easy installation.
  • Cutouts of unique configurations. If it can be drawn, it can be cut.
  • Drainage Systems where holes must be correctly spaced in order for fluids to properly draw.
