Flexco to address splicing, cleaning, tracking and belt slippage needs at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020
Flexco will also discuss the future of belt conveyor technology for heavy-duty applications in various industries.
Visitors can stop by Booth C32314 to learn how Flexco can help operations optimize their belt conveyors. The booth will feature a full-size conveyor, as well as interactive displays to help attendees better understand the features and benefits of Flexco product solutions. Live demonstrations of conveyor rip repair and 45-degree fastener installation using the Flexco Bolt Solid Plate Fastening system will also take place at the booth.
This year, Flexco National Accounts/OEM Manager Dick McConnell will be speaking during the educational sessions. McConnell will co-present "Maximizing Conveyor Performance – Industry Standards Versus Real World Application" on Thursday, March 12th from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
Superior cleaning and dust containment
At the booth, Flexco will be showcasing a variety of products designed to increase efficiency and decrease downtime. The Flexco Wash Box is designed to deliver superior cleaning efficiency in applications where the conveyor must be very clean or when head-end cleaning is not enough. Mounted on the return side of the belt, hinged doors are available on each side for easy inspection.
The Y-Type Secondary Cleaner, a product that is ideal for use in aggregate applications, will also be highlighted at this year's booth. With standard and heavy-duty options available, the Y-Type offers multiple blade options and easy maintenance.
Safer, easier installation and maintenance
The company will introduce its new TUG HD Belt Clamps, which are designed to secure the belt for repair, meeting the most stringent safety test standards. Available in 6- and 8-ton versions, TUG HD Belt Clamps provide even tensioning across the entire belt width for ultimate strength. Modular components allow for increased versatility and portability.
The Flex-Lifter Belt Lifter, 900 Series Belt Cutter, and Cordless Electric Belt Cutter round out the group of products designed for safer belt conveyor maintenance that will be highlighted in the Flexco booth this year.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
