Traverse bar lengthened

Posted in: , on 21. Sep. 2007 - 06:51

We have problem with our 2200 mm Flexowell belt that have to be spliced lately next week but we just have 2 set of 1400 mm and 1200 mm vulcanizer machine from Shaw almex and it used AX bars. the problem is traverse bar not long enough to handle 2200 mm belt width, so is there anyone could help me to solve this case by using my existing Shaw almex machine.

I just thing to combine 2 set of AX bar but I'm not sure it will be applicable.

Dear Racky:

I am not sure if I understand your question. Are you asking if you can combine the AX bars end to end to form a longer bar? If so, the answer would be a definite no.

Modifying the bars in any manner should never be done.

Using the bars beyond their rating is a definite way to cause a catastrophic failure and potentially harm the splicers or anyone else near the area.

I would recommend that you contact Shaw Almex. Their bars all have a maximum strength rating to a specific length. They would be able to advise you of the best method to properly use their vulcanizer.
