Multotec’s conveyor belt lacing subsidiary, MATO, has recently expanded its offering with the addition of new service and repair facilities.
Andrew Frank, Operations Manager at MATO Products, highlighted the recent completion of a new spray-painting booth, which has doubled the firm’s capacity to finish refurbished items.
“To keep up with market demand, we have expanded our spray booth significantly in terms of size and throughput capability,” Frank said. “It can now accommodate components up to a length of 2.2 m and provide a more productive environment for operators.”
This allows for all repair and finishing work – even on the longer diagonal belt cleaners – to be spray-painted in-house, he says, improving turnaround time, quality control and cost to customers.
“We pride ourselves on the functionality and longevity of our products,” he said. “We base this on our technical quality in repairing and refurbishing equipment to ‘as-new’ specifications. Upgrading our facilities ensures that we continue doing this as cost effectively as possible, as our customer base grows.”
Complying with the highest standards of health and safety, the new spray booth is equipped with the latest filtration technology, according to the company. This ensures fumes and chemicals are filtered before air is expelled from the building. A powerful fan unit enables an extraction capacity of 18,000 cu.m/h.
Known as a leader in conveyor belt lacing, MATO also offers a range of belt cleaning solutions.
