Flexco is committed to applying superior knowledge and products to make your belt conveyor operation as productive as possible. But we don’t just manufacture products, we develop real solutions to your belt conveyor challenges, and we want to be your most valued partner on the job.
Most belt conveyor operations rely on one or both common methods of splicing: mechanical belt fastening or vulcanization. Mechanical Belt Fasteners vs. Vulcanization. Mechanical Belt Fastening is the process of joining conveyor belt ends by metal hinges or plates. Vulcanization is the process of joining belt ends through heat or chemicals.
At Flexco, we pride ourselves on helping you and your belt conveyor system work better than ever before. That’s why we don’t just sell products. We partner with you to enhance productivity. And even after your belt is up and running, Flexco stays involved. It’s all part of our commitment to being your most valued partner on the job.
