With its mechanical belt fasteners, Flexco provides solutions that enable the operators of conveyor systems, such as those used in steelworks and coal mines, to considerably simplify their maintenance and repair work.
Mechanical belt fasteners can be installed and removed more easily, faster and more independently of the weather than the common vulcanizing. This makes it possible to considerably reduce downtime and increase productivity. These fasteners can be used for belts between 3 and 30 mm thick and with a nominal belt tensile strength of up to 2500 N/mm.
Flexco offers two types of fasteners: hinged or solid plate. Hinged fasteners are suitable for belts that need to be frequently changed, cleaned or renewed. They can easily be separated by releasing the hinge pin. Additionally, these fasteners can be used for belts with different thicknesses. Another advantage of hinged fasteners with pin is that belts can be prepared in the workshop prior to installation. Solid plate fasteners are used in installations with large pulleys or in cases where high wear resistance and fastener strength are required.
