What repair and replacement services does MIR provide?
If a belt at your facility shows signs of damage or has a complete breakdown, MIR’s conveyor belt technicians will provide break-fix services to ensure your facility has minimal downtime. Our team will efficiently install the new replacement belt and verify correct tracking, splicing and pulley placement on your application line in a timely manner.
In the case of minimal to moderate damage to a belt, our team can also conduct repairs with vulcanization, metal fasteners or cold curing. These are used as a temporary solution until a window of downtime for replacement, and only for non-food-grade processes. When our conveyor belt technicians arrive on site, they’ll recommend repair or replacement methods that will be most advantageous to your plant’s safety and reliability.

How are MIR’s conveyor belt technicians trained?
Our belting technicians are thoroughly trained in safety best-practices for facilities and are ISN certified.
