We have been splicing belts for almost as long as we have been making them.
In fact our global research and development team keep us at the forefront of conveyor belt splicing technology, so you can rely on the most advanced belt splicing techniques. Our fully approved and trained technicians put this knowledge into action at your operation ensuring that the correct type of belt splice is used, undertaken safely and to the highest standard.
We offer conveyor belt splicing and vulcanisation for all belt types including steel cord, rubber ply and solid woven underground belts. Options include hot or cold vulcanising or mechanical fasteners.
Fenner High Integrity Splice
Fenner has pioneered the successful introduction of Hi-Integrity Splicing (HIS) technology into Australian mining operations for rubber plied belting. This development represents an industry milestone in extended ply belting splice life, enabling Fenner to provide you with a splice that will achieve similar life to that of the belt itself.
- Specifically designed for high flex/fatigue applications.
- A solution for applications where a traditional lap splice might fail due to difficult operating conditions.
Benefits of Hi-Integrity Splicing
- Splice life enhancements of three-to-five times that of conventional bias lapped style splices.
- Extends conveyor belt life.
- Reduced long-term costs, production downtime and maintenance.
Field tests of this type of belt splicing have shown that reduced long term costs are most evident in permanent underground coal and surface applications, as the additional cost associated with the HIS splice is easily justified taking into account the full life cycle of the conveyor belt. Please contact Fenner to discuss the potential cost-savings at your operation.
Splice Quality Assurance (QA)
Splice QA is provided by our experienced team using Fenner’s specialist in-house procedure. The combination of splice QA and Digital X-ray allows total accountability of splice installation to provide recordable images of the final product. All parameters are recorded and a full report is compiled and presented to you.
This ensures that the splice is performed to the highest standard and in accordance with the belt OEM’s procedure to deliver maximum splice life and longevity. Fenner Splice QA will give you total peace of mind about the conveyor belt splicing services performed.
