This may or may not be the best place to ask this question but anyway her goes....I have a small conveyor that I would like to use uses o-rings to move sheets of paper as per the attached PDF (to get perspective the pulleys are 1.0" dia). I have been advised that for this application an o-ring, since it is molded, will not hold up vs a fused cord (of equal mat'l) since the cord is extruded. Sounded reasonable when it was explained to me but I'd like some confirmation. The plus side of the o-ring is cost since it is a std size.
Any comments appreciated.
