I do not have anywhwere near the professional size equipment like yours, but

I learned some time ago leaving belts on under stress on the machine does them favours along with storing them beside the machine when its used outside the sun then fixes them up real quick.

And I also learned there is no effective way a home worker can repair the belts back to original reliability after the joint strip gives way.

No matter what tape glue or witches brew you use you get unreliable results, failing in work or the surface is uneven either way none are repaired to the level as made by the supplier.

Belt off the machine after use

Or stored when not used

You may have noticed in the middle of the group are scotch belts, have you tried these yet?
I have had great results from mine.
