We launched a new product in 2016 for repairing belts (Fix’ N Go). Each of these products will be discussed in greater detail under the Products & Services tab above.
MLT has been supplying operations of every size with the right solution since 1945. We offer 19 different product options for conveyor belt fasteners and splices, creating more than a million unique part numbers to meet your specific needs.
Fastening components for conveyor belts in mining applications
From MLT’s Super Screw product line to its full line of mechanical fasteners, the company sets the benchmark for highly reliable solutions for your conveyor belt needs.
MLT offers clients the ease of mind knowing you are securing the most efficient method to repair or install a conveyor belt. We are here to help you create the best solution, using a wide range of products such as our Super-Screw rubber splice, MS mechanical fasteners, and G2000, Titan and Record V6 connectors.
The company’s portfolio focuses on the simplicity of repairs, ease of portability at the site and substantially extending the life of your conveyor belt.
Flexible rubber splices for conveyor belts
Super-Screw is a flexible, rubber splice to fix onto the conveyor belt, as an alternative to vulcanizing.
The key difference is in the MLT-specific screws, which are self-drilling, self-tapping and made of the highest quality.
MLT technology enables the Super-Screw to be installed at anytime and anywhere, regardless of the location, accessibility of conveyor belt or weather conditions, resulting in a significant reduction in downtime.
The Super-Screw can be ordered pre-cut to your specified length or in a roll to cover multiple uses. It’s a three-in-one solution, combining splicing, repairing, and patching. In addition, the quantity of screws and spacers required for assembly are matched up to maximize quality in your specific installation. The only equipment needed is a cordless or electric drill, with a cutting tool. The conditions of use would determine the rubber composite material.
Features of the Super-Screw include:
- Abrasion Resistant (grade-one AR)
- HOT (Heat-resistant up to 400°F)
- Fire-resistant and anti-static capabilities, according to DIN20340 and 20284 specifications of the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA)
- Oil-resistant up to temperatures of 284°F
- Sliding bed / friction back / Bareback
Mechanical fasteners for heavy-duty conveyor belts
The MS is a fastener that uses self-tapping screws for heavy-duty belts, but does not need drilling, a template or any hammering. They are the only mechanical fasteners that are installed using battery-operated, electric or pneumatic screwdrivers. The screws drill smoothly in the belt with a variety of measurement options, while maintaining belt integrity.
MS fasteners are more economical since there is no investment in manufacturer-specific or complex tooling. Installation is very simple, as it does not require specialized equipment or training.
In addition, MS fasteners offer a distinct advantage in that all types of belts can be repaired and the belt is also clamped by the fastener itself. The fastener can also be installed closer to the carcass after the rubber covers have been skived.
The skiving tools feature our PS15 Standard Belt Skiver that can skive belts from 1/16″ to 5/8″ thick (1.59mm to 15.88mm). The Record V6 connectors have pre-assembled staples and solve a large range of applications. With its continuous length, the G200 and the Titan are solutions that customers count on from MLT.
