The end-user had been replacing the belt every 4 months, which meant that production had to be stopped each time. Apart from the cost of lost production they also had to buy three new belts every year plus the cost of fitting each time. The Dunlop UsFlex belt was supplied endless using a hot, single-step splice. The belt has already lasted 16 months (and continues to perform well) so the operational lifetime is already at least 400% longer. The end-user now only buys from Dunlop Service Italy who provides a ‘just in time’ service.
