Industry: Steel Processing
Application: Steel Rolling Mill Drive
Problem: One of the main problems with maintenance to a large drive is the expensive cost associated with it. The belts on a steel rolling mill drive were due to be replaced but the site engineer could not source a cost effective replacement. Replacing the existing belt would be very expensive and would be a week of downtime to replace.
Solution: Specifying NuTLink belts reduced the new belt costs by 50%. The fitting time was also reduced to just two days, hence minimizing downtime on the line. Despite the reduced cost, the NuTLink belts provided the same transmission capability and belt life expectancy as the original belts. A perfect solution for "Big Drives", NuTLink is a cost effective solution for the expensive or impossible to source replacement belt.
