Flexco has announced the introduction of its 900 Series Cutter designed to safely and accurately cut belts up to 1-1/2 in. (38 mm), while significantly reducing operator effort.
With the patent pending 900 Series Belt Cutter, users can safely and easily cut thick and/or hard carcass belts up to 1-1/2” (38 mm) thick due to advancements in the blade’s technology. A highly precise cut is achieved through the robust blade design, the gently serrated belt grip surface, and the single sided clamp force, which allows the belt to fall free from the cut line.
The 900 Series Belt Cutter meets Flexco Safe™ standards as it has been specifically designed for operator safety. The blade is totally enclosed during the entire cutting process and is safely stored within the cutter when not in use. Also, the unique “T” top blade design helps protect users from injury.
The 900 cutter slides easily into position and the upper clamp beam is quickly engaged to speed the cutting process. The cut line can be quickly aligned with clear visibility and the torque required to cut the belt is dropped by over 50% compared to other cutters. When the cut is complete, use the quick release clamps to remove the top beam by simply depressing a lever.
Flexco provides the world’s belt conveyors with efficient, safe products, services and solutions for mechanical splicing, slippage, belt tracking and cleaning. The company is based in Downers Grove, Illinois and operates subsidiaries in California, Michigan, Mexico, England, Germany, Australia and South Africa. Flexco markets its broad line of products through a worldwide network of distributors, under the brand names which include Flexco®, Rockline®, Mineline®, and Eliminator®.
