Flexco will showcase a wide range of new conveyor belt technology on Stand 3116 at the Asia-Pacific’s International Mining Exhibition.
And the company will also use AIMEX’s Women in Mining Day (Wednesday, August 21) to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Flexco’s new product releases will include CoreTech heavy-duty nylon conveyor rollers; Australian-made impact and slider beds; a heavy-duty floating blade belt plough; the MHCP heavy-duty cartridge primary cleaner; and a pneumatic single rivet driver.
Flexco’s CoreTech heavy-duty nylon conveyor rollers are made of high-strength, corrosion-resistant, abrasion-resistant composite materials.
According to Flexco’s national marketing manager, Mark Colbourn, these fire-resistant anti-static (FRAS) rollers are suitable for use in harsh underground environments, are durable and emit less noise than their steel counterparts.
“In addition, as they are up to 60% lighter than equivalent steel rollers, installation is quicker and less costly and the risk of worker injury is reduced,” he said.
Its heavy-duty floating blade belt plough features a patent-pending fail-safe fixed frame and what Flexco describes as unique self-adjusting floating blades.
Meanwhile, the fail-safe fixed frame never touches the belt as the blades wear, minimising conveyor belt damage, he said.
Flexco’s MHCP heavy-duty cartridge primary cleaner was developed for tough mining environments and features FRAS-approved SuperShear self-adjusting blades, quick and simple blade replacement and is available in sizes to take belt widths from 600 mm to 2400 mm.
Its pneumatic single-rivet driver, designed for use with Flexco SR fasteners and installation bases, is said to speed installations by up to 33 per cent.
