Choosing the proper heavy-duty mechanical belt fastening system is one of the most important steps in splicing a belt. Mechanical Fasteners combine strength and durability with fast, easy installation for a quality, long-term splicing option.

Below are heavy-duty mechanical belt fastening system that is best suited to your application.

FLEXCO® Bolt Solid Plate Fastening System

The Flexco® Bolt Solid Plate Fastening System produces a strong, sift-free splice with superior holding ability thanks to a combination of top-and-bottom plate compression and high-tensile-strength bolts. Are engineered to meet the demands of the toughest material handling applications, providing a strong, sift-free splice with superior holding ability. A choice of sizes accommodates belts from 5 mm (3/16”) to over 24 mm (15/16”) thick.

FLEXCO® Bolt Hinged Fastening System

The Flexco® Bolt Hinged Fastening System is ideal for belt conveyor applications subject to length adjustments because the joint can be separated easily by removing the hinge pin. A combination of penetration and compression delivers strength and reliability to belts operating over smaller pulleys. Sturdy hinged construction makes Flexco® Bolt Hinged fasteners ideal. A choice of sizes accommodate belt from 6 mm (1/4”) to 16 mm (5/8”) thick.

FLEXCO® Rivet Solid Plate Fastening System

The Flexco® Rivet Solid Plate Fastening System with a staggered, multiple-point attachment for a long-lasting hold. Ideal for use with straight-warped belts because rivets separate the fibers instead of displacing the carcass. Now easier and faster to install with the newly designed Aluminium MBRT Installation Tool.

FLEXCO® Rivet Hinged Fastening System

The Flexco® SR™ Rivet Hinged Fastening System is ideal for use on rubber-plied and PVC solid woven belting and for worn belts unfit for vulcanized splices, delivering performance and long life with easy installation

FLEXCO® Bolt Solid Plate Fastening System

  • Mechanical fastener rating from 150 to 560 PIW (30 to 100 kN/m)
  • Belts from 3/16” to 5/16” (5 mm to 24 mm) thick
  • Pulley diameters from 12” to 48” (300 mm to 1220 mm)

High Strength

High strength is the result of superior design and plate compression on both the top and bottom sides of the belt. High tensile strength bolts compress top and bottom plates to distribute splice tension evenly across the entire width of each fastener plate. For added strength and pull-out resistance, specially formed teeth penetrate deep into the belt carcass – without damaging carcass fibers.

Easy Installation

Field-proven templets, punches, and boring tools make it easy to quickly and accurately prepare belts for fastener installation. Fasteners are easily installed on-site using portable hand tools or power tools. Flexco exclusive piloted bolts also contribute to faster installation.

FLEXCO® Bolt Hinged Fastening System

  • Mechanical fastener rating from 190 to 300 PIW (33-52 kN/m)
  • Belts from 1/4” to 5/8” (6 mm to 16 mm) thick
  • Pulley diameters from 6” to 9” (150 mm to 225 mm)

Versatile, easy-to-install design

For belt conveyor applications subject to frequent length adjustments, the Bolt Hinged fastener is easy to install – and re-install. The joint can be separated simply by removing the hinge pin.

On-site installation requires hand or power tools. Flexco exclusive piloted bolt also simplifies installation and holds fastener plates firmly in place. For added strength and pull-out resistance, specially formed teeth penetrate deep into the belt carcass without damaging carcass fibers.

FLEXCO® Rivet Solid Plate Fastening System (Aluminium Installation Tool)

  • Mechanical fastener rating from 400 to 800 PIW (70 to 140 kN/m)
  • Belts from 3/16” to 15/16” (5 mm to 24 mm) thick
  • Pulley diameters from 14” to 36” (350 mm to 900 mm)

Faster

  • Fewer installation steps with the newly designed Aluminum MBRT Tool allows operators to save up to 40% in installation time of Flexco® BR™ Rivet Plate fasteners.
  • Use the Aluminum MBRT tool and drive rod for hand installation or speed installation time with electric powered installation.
  • Clamp Bar is designed with Acme threading to speed clamping and enhance operator efficiency.

Easier

  • Upgraded Clamp Bar is also used as a belt stop for fast, accurate belt centering.
  • Easy installation of rivets with Rapid Loader™ Collated Rivet strips allow operator to load the entire guide block at one time.

Safer

  • Aluminium channel and base provides for a lighter weight tool.
  • The ribbed surface on the clamp bar and tool base ensure maximum grip on the belt.

Smarter

FLEXCO® Rivet Hinged Fastening System

  • Mechanical fastener rating from 330 to 2000  PIW (60 to 350 kN/m)
  • Belts from 1/8” to 1” after skiving
  • Pulley diameters from 5” to 42” (125 to 150 mm)

Quality and Performance

The Flexco® SR™ Rivet Hinged Fastening System has earned a reputation for quality and performance in the most demanding material handling applications on earth. Wherever belt conveyors are used, you need a fastener system that lets you set up, splice, and get out of the way … fast. Flexco SR fasteners deliver the performance, long life, and easy installation that maximise belt availability and help keep productivity on a roll.

Maximum Splice Life, Increased Uptime

Flexco Rivet Hinged Fasteners combine top and bottom fastener plates, which are joined at one end by two wide hinge loops. Each pair of plates sandwich the belt end and are secured to the belt with a staggered pattern of rivets. The rivets penetrate the belt without damaging or weakening the belt carcass providing maximum resistance to pull-out and evenly distributed splice tension across the width of the belt. No matter what the belt condition, Flexco SR fasteners are a good choice for both new and older, worn belts. Concerns about comparable vulcanized splice strength can be dismissed as rivet hinged fasteners have a long history of service on belts with mechanical fastener rating of up to 350 kN/m (2000 P.I.W.)
