Flexco has added to its line of endless splicing solutions the Novitool Amigo for splicing monolithic belts.
The Amigo is a new concept in the joining of solid polyester and polyurethane conveyor belts that produces high-quality splices in a fast and safe manner.
Amigo was engineered for precision belt splicing and features a contactless heating process that splices the belt in less than one minute.
The pre-heat function removes moisture from belt ends, avoiding unwanted pinholes in the splices, which is important in the food industry from a hygienic perspective.
Complete with an integrated belt cutter for operator safety, Amigo produces straight cuts with the right amount of excess material needed for clash in the finished splice.
Interchangeable belt templates are designed to ensure precise pitch splicing across various monolithic belt manufacturer styles.
Another safety feature is the heat shield guard, which protects the operator from the contactless heat emitter, unlike the traditional hot wand. The emitter also brings belt ends to the desired molten state without contacting or disrupting the material.
Flexco product manager Michelle Young said: "Quality, speed, and operator safety are fully integrated into the Amigo design, making it an ideal splicing tool for in-shop or on-site splicing."
