UsFlex 630/1 6+3 RS, + Superscrew (stock item 615)


Type and specification of Dunlop belt supplied
Stock Item 615 1200mm, endless 13M (WITH SUPERSCREW63A as no space for big press)
Current operating life of Dunlop belt
14 MONTHS+. As can be seen in the attached photos, the main weakness was the need to use a superscrew fastener. A finger splice was not an option due to insufficient space for a big press. The Dunlop solution was to make the belt endless using a "standard hot splice" technique but with only one step. This was first tested it in the DS workshop
Average life of competitor’s belt
4 Months

The belt had to be changed every 4 months, which meant frequently stopping production. Since the change to Dunlop, the working life of belts on this application is 4 times longer. Now the end-user buys only from Dunlop Service, which stocks a wide range of belts and provides a “just in time” service!
