Improved Clipper® Roller Lacer® Features Redesigned Parts Offering Better, Easier, Faster Splicing With Less Tool Wear

DOWNERS GROVE (IL/USA), AUG. 16, 2004 -- An improved tool for on-site manual installation of Clipper(R) Wire Hook Lacing in light-duty conveyor belts is being introduced by Flexco. While retaining the earlier tool's familiar name, the new Clipper Roller Lacer(R) deeply embeds the belt splice quicker and with less wear on the tool. The lacer head has been completely redesigned for added durability and strength, which enables the Roller Lacer to embed lacing hooks deeper and tighter into the belt. This lower- profile splice provides greater holding strength, longer service life and less wear on splice-contacting conveyor components. Lacer guide blocks have been widened to full lacer head width, providing maximum bearing surface for greater wear resistance and minimal maintenance. Face-strip locking now is done with a knurled knob that allows simple finger tightening in place of the flathead screw that was difficult to reach with a screwdriver. The new Lacer design also introduces an offset drive handle for greater leverage at one end so more of the splice installation passes can be done conveniently with one hand. Clipper Roller Lacers are designed for easy on-site splice installation by only one person, lacing even wide belts in a single operation. Four sizes are available to accommodate belt widths up to 24" (600mm), 36" (900mm), 48" (1200mm) and 60" (1500mm) with a single set-up. The tool's continuous lacing capability allows the user to lace belts wider than the lacer width.
