Electric Belt Cutter Speeds Installation and Repair

Flexco has introduced an electric conveyor belt cutter, designed to provide quick and easy cuts on all types of belting from the softest of natural rubbers to the hardest constructed solid woven PVC and fabric plied belts, according to the company. The belt cutter is available in two sizes: the EBC1 is capable of cutting a rubber belt up to 1-in. (25 mm) thick and up to a maximum 360 P.I.W. (630 N/m) on PVC belts while the EBC2 cuts rubber belts up to 2-in. (50 mm) thick and up to a maximum 1,140 P.I.W. (2,000 N/m) on PVC belts. The units’ high-speed, steel blade is dual angled for a smooth, accurate cut and is protected by a spring-loaded blade guard for enhanced worker safety. The cutters allow for longitudinal cuts as well as angled cuts. Flexco says the sealed ball bearings that support the belt during cutting provide nearly friction-free feeding of the cutter on the cutting surface, requiring minimal effort by the operator. The cutter can be easily adapted for either right or left hand operation.
