Introductory Course in Splicing

About this course

Introductory course on splicing of textile reinforced conveyor belting is aimed at educating supervisors and other overseers of the do’s and don’ts’ of best practice to achieve successful splices that will last! Splice failures are not only a safety issue but they cost industry millions in damage to the belt and structure, and of course, in downtime. Getting the splice right the first time is key. This three-day course presents the theory of belt splicing in a series of lectures interspersed with practical observation in the workshop, including inspection by cutting open the splice.

The results of incorrect splicing methods can be seen and compared to the correct methods. THIS COURSE DOES NOT TEACH SPLICING! It does teach the supervising engineer what to look for during the preparation and construction of the splice.
