Industrial Conveyor Belt Technician work involves operation of vulcanisers, belt winders and roller machines (for re-coating pulleys) and repair and servicing of conveyor belts of all types and sizes.
Duties involve validating raw material, recommending splice lengths, and monitoring pressure and temperature. Some Belt Splicers specialise in steel cord and fabric splicing. They can also be involved in the removal and re-installation of reconditioned belts onto conveyor systems.
