Genuine technical advice and support
Although conveyor belts represent a considerable financial outlay, it is fair to say that to the untrained eye, all conveyor belts simply look like long lengths of thick black rubber. In reality, modern-day conveyor belts are actually highly complex pieces of equipment. Unfortunately, most belt manufacturers and suppliers are happy for their customers to believe that there isn’t much difference between one belt and another. This is because they compete for business based on price rather than quality and value for money. It doesn’t help that there is so much confusing technical terminology together with a multitude of quality and safety standards and associated test methods.
Conveyor belt technology has actually advanced very significantly in recent years and today’s conveyor belt operators should expect a much higher level of performance and much longer operational lifetimes. At Dunlop, we believe in advising our customers based on what are genuinely the best, most cost-effective solutions for their needs. When you buy Dunlop you get more than just conveyor belts – you get genuine technical advice and support.
