Flexco to Demonstrate Innovative Splice Press and Fastener Solutions at Logis-Tech Tokyo 2012

August 22, 2012

Flexco, the world's leading light-duty endless splicing and mechanical fastener solutions provider, will be participating in Logis-Tech Tokyo 2012, September 11-14. Visitors can visit Flexco at Booth Hall 5-809 for live demonstrations of the company's innovative technologies, including the highly efficient all-in-one portable splice press, various fastener systems, and other wire hook technologies. Ideal for belt conveyor operations in logistics, airport baggage, and other package handling and food processing industries, Flexco solutions consistently help maximise belt conveyor productivity through decreased downtime, reduced installation time and safer operations.

Flexco is collaborating with its Japanese distributor, Kubo Shokai Corporation at the show. The Sales and Marketing Manager for Southeast Asia and East Asia, Jerry Loh added that "over the decades of working with our Japanese distributor Kubo Shokai Corporation, Flexco products and support are readily available in Japan. We look forward to bringing more innovation and superior service to the Japanese market to achieve maximum belt conveyor productivity."

At Logis-Tech Tokyo 2012, Flexco will introduce its portable all-in-one Novitool® Aero™ Portable Splice Press, an innovative single unit that eliminates the need for additional external systems, such as water tanks and pumps, because all functions and subsystems are fully integrated. Also incorporated in the press is an air-cooling system that increases splice quality and operating speed, reducing downtime to only 7-12 minutes per splice.

Another highlight at this year's show will be the Alligator® series of staple fastener systems, which are faster, easier-to-use and safer for operators. Alligator® fastener systems are suitable for a wide variety of light and medium-duty applications in package and baggage handling systems, case and corrugated box conveying, and food and agricultural products. The Alligator Ready Set™ Staple Fastener system features one-piece fastener strips with pre-inserted staples that speed up installation and minimises downtime for belt sizes 1.5mm to 6.4mm.

Flexco will also be exhibiting its Clipper® Hook Systems and several FDA-approved fasteners. These fasteners are suitable for thinner belts, such as in food and packaging industries.

"We are constantly searching for solutions to increase productivity for our customers," said Todd Stewart, market development manager. "Flexco offers both endlessing and mechanical belt fastening in-house splicing equipment that allows users to resplice conveyor belts quickly and easily. Most splicing systems from Flexco are installed in under 15 minutes."
