Shutting down your belt to make a belt splice cuts into your productivity. And while vulcanizing can get the job done, it’s a time-consuming process that often requires the help of an off-site professional. By opting for mechanical belt fasteners, you can quickly and easily create a strong, durable splice –– using your on-site crew. Our wide array of mechanical fastening systems can help you maximize your uptime and keep output high.
Texan quarry, one of America's largest producers of construction products, combated wet-belt splicing wear with abrasion-resistant alloy fasteners. The wet-belt splice life at the site was tripled.
Hay producers in South Africa are putting to work an improved baler-belt technology developed in the U.S. Breakages are far fewer too.
There are many reasons why it is important to skive a belt. In most cases, skiving will save both time and money throughout the production process, and it does not weaken the belt.
In light-duty conveyor systems, one of the key factors in obtaining conveyor uptime is achieving the optimum splice. For conveyors using endless belts, consider the benefits of switching to mechanical fasteners in order to increase uptime.
Amid a global economic downturn, cement producers need to do everything they can to improve operating efficiencies and reduce costs. This article outlines what you need to know about mechanical splicing to achieve cost savings and increase productivity.
World's largest insulation line maintains its 24-ft. belt with staple-plate splicing, which is much faster and less costly than vulcanizing.
