One of the most common causes of downtime related to conveyor belting is poor or incomplete splicing. Getting the splice right is not only difficult but time consuming. Many splices are made in haste, often immediately following a breakdown. The result is nearly 90% of breakages during production occur at the splice.
Here at Wire Belt, we offer high-quality Flat-Flex conveyor belting and our EZ-Splice joining strand can be used within your set-up to prolong its belt life.
The purpose of the EZ-Splice joining strand is to ensure that conveyor belt installations are as simple as possible and reduce unnecessary downtime, saving you time and money as a result. EZ-Splice can help you join your belt up to 20 times faster than traditional full strand joining!
EZ-Splice increases the reliability of your belt, with stronger belt joints giving longer belt life. It is also manufactured pre-formed and pre-bent meaning no weaving or bending needs to take place during the fitting process. As a result, weak spots within the belt will no longer occur.
Below we explain how our EZ-Splice joining strand is fitted, however if you feel that you would benefit more from watching a member of our Wire Belt team install the EZ-Splice, click here to watch the video on our Wire Belt YouTube Channel or get in touch with our tech sales team to set up a demonstration with your technical sales representative.
Before starting the fitting process, please ensure that any tension on the belt is loosened. This is extremely important, as a tight conveyor belt is much more prone to damage. After completing this, you can start by hooking both edges of the EZ-Splice joining strand into the belt. When doing this, make sure the EZ-Splice is facing in the correct direction of travel.
Next, attach the EZ-Splice to the other side of the belt. It is beneficial to tilt the EZ-Splice when doing this to ensure that it is locked into the correct spaces. Finally, use the EZ-Splice crimping pliers to crimp the belt’s Z-bends, reversing the direction of the pliers with each crimp.
