A conveyor breakdown is always a critical issue. Its timing can never be predicted, and neither can the associated costs, which not only include the cost of repair, but also the period of lost production.
The vast majority of breakdowns due to belt failure can be prevented by a combination of using the correct specification and quality of conveyor belting and a program of routine maintenance.
At Dunlop Service we offer maintenance packages to our customers that include scheduled inspections and preventive measures to ensure that conveyors keep running. We hold stocks of the most commonly used conveyor components and is staffed by highly skilled service engineers trained to the highest level.
Under the umbrella of a service contract, our service engineers will undertake preventative maintenance designed to prevent breakdowns, and therefore unscheduled downtime. Maintenance work will take place at a time to suit the customer when downtime can be scheduled and controlled and will, therefore have the minimum impact on production.
