Splicing equipment and technology

ContiTech Conveyor Belt Group

ContiTech’s range of conveyor belt splicing services comprise complete splicing, vulcanising, cutting, stripping and monitoring.

As the majority of conveyor belt rips and tears occur at the splices, the method of conveyor belt splicing becomes fundamental in ensuring both the longevity of the conveyor belt and that it performs at optimum efficiency.

Preform™ splicing technology

Preform™ splicing technology

Our patented Preform™ method of conveyor belt splicing is the ONLY on-site splicing option available, providing improved splice strength, along with reduced splice time.
