How are rubber conveyor belts manufactured?

Rubber conveyor belts are manufactured through a calendering and vulcanizing process: during the first one, belt carcass (which could be textile or made by steel) is coupled with the chosen rubber compound to create the raw belt. In the second one, raw belts undergo a vulcanizing process to create the ending product.
