Truco (Transvaal Rubber Company) has introduced the first locally-produced steel cord bucket elevator conveyor belt in South Africa. It has been specifically designed and constructed for heavy-duty, vertical conveyance applications. Until now, the country's existing array of steel cord bucket elevator belt installations were manufactured abroad, provided by foreign suppliers at overseas wholesale prices. The shipping of these belts to South Africa entailed both considerable delivery times and exacting import charges.
Truco, with the help of experts in the field of vertical conveyance and a leading steel cord supplier in Germany, has launched a steel-reinforced bucket elevator belt that doesn't just meet current ISO requirements and standards, but exceeds them.
As a result, South Africa's mining, construction and agriculture industries now have a cost-effective alternative to imported steel cord bucket conveyor belts. Truco clients will receive their steel cord bucket conveyor belt within significantly shorter delivery times. Additionally, Truco will be able to offer advanced technical service and support locally through its team of on-site conveyor belt specialists and engineers.
Truco has been providing conveyor belt solutions to South Africa and Africa for over 100 years. Truco is a global leader in conveyor belting technology and offer a complete range of conveyance solutions including steel cord, steep incline, Chevron rubber and textile reinforced belts, providing optimal performance in even the toughest applications.
