Why APPI:  Stringing and tensioning a conveyor belt is a difficult process – especially when it must be done within the constraints of a mining environment.   To address the problems  they and their customers have with this process, Shaw-Almex, a leading supplier of conveyor belt vulcanizing and splicing equipment, asked APPI to provide them with eight of their Columbia WD1450 units to be used as conveyor belt tensioning winches.

These units are fitted with variable frequency drives in NEMA 4X rated control enclosures and come equipped with a Columbia AutoAdvance Line Spooler to ensure perfect spooling regardless of pulling angle.  Cable tensioning plates help prevent wire rope nesting when tension is lost at the hook and a hand-held directional control with variable speed adjustment allows precise positioning of the belts.

Please contact us if you would like more information about these particular tensioning winches or any of our other products and services.

    I need a conveyor take-up winch for and underground mining operation. Explosion proof is not required. I need between 30 and possibly 200 m of take-up travel. Max tension is 200 tonnes.
