Steel Cord Plant

Fenner Conveyor Belting South Africa (Pty) Ltd, a member of the worldwide Fenner Group, announced the investment and development of a multi-million rand steel cord belt manufacturing facility at their Isando premises in Johannesburg. The new plant, which is due for commissioning early 2008, features state-of-the-art equipment to meet the growing demand for high quality steel cord belting, particularly in mining and heavy duty industrial applications. Not only will this new steel cord facility expand Fennerís existing product range, it will also satisfy the need for a wider choice of locally manufactured products available to local steel cord end users.

As part of the global group, Fenner will enjoy ongoing technology transfer and updates from their worldwide manufacturing facilities to bring the best of practices to the South African market.

DynaFlight® Features and Benefits

  • High Capacity: High belt speeds and deep troughing keep materials moving.
  • Longevity: Combination of high strength and outstanding flexibility produces longer lasting belts.
  • Straight Tracking: Belts are pre-tensioned during manufacture with alternating S and Z twists cords.
  • Minimum Load Disturbance: High tensile strength means transfer points are reduced or eliminated and loads go smoothly, without surges, over the idlers.
  • Unsurpassed Quality: Careful construction using corrosion resistant zinc coated cords, tightly adhering cord-bonding rubber, all protected with a hardwearing cover means extra/long life in service.
  • Customisation: Belts can be customised to suit specific conditions and requirements.
  • High carbon steel: Manufactured from high carbon steel to provide same properties as steel such as high modulus/ low elongation and absence of creep.
  • Cost savings: Designed for specific applications ensuring enhanced belt life, resulting in cost savings. Cover compounds are formulated and engineered from natural and/or synthetic rubber to give optimum performance.
