Art of Conveyor belt splicing!

“Splicing may look simple to naked eyes but in reality minute technical details that go in to the splicing a belt contribute mainly for the integrity of the system. Getting the angle of skive right is just the first step in a proper splicing. Then comes the plies where any minor nick on the adjacent ply can cause the joint to loose significant tensile strength at a point which is already the weakest point in the complete system.” says Wenco Mining’s Global Technical Manager Rudolf Michel.
