CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE

We strive to be an environmentally, socially and economically sustainable business through our commitment to continuous investment in the latest technology, processes and corporate social responsibility.

Our Centre of Excellence conducts research & development, shares best practices and provides leadership, training and mentoring.

SMILEY MONROE BELT ACADEMY

We offer specialised training for our own people, our distribution partners and our customers.

For many years we’ve been delivering belt splice training programs worldwide to customers, tailored to their individual needs. From a two day refresher course to two weeks intensive training for beginners, candidates leave ready to confidently carry out hot and cold belt splicing without supervision. Other programs for improving operating efficiency include practical belt tracking, conveyor design principles, guarding legislation and conveyor safety.


SMILEY MONROE LABS


We routinely test the abrasion resistance, tensile strength and adhesion levels of both the cover rubber and fabric plies of our raw materials and finished products in our well-equipped labs, to ensure conformity to DIN, ISO and Smiley Monroe standards.

In partnership with the world-renowned Polymer Processing Research Centre at Queens University Belfast, and leading-edge suppliers, we have both the expertise and the facilities to protect our customers. We’d be more than happy for you to visit us to validate for yourself.

Belt types we service range from flat and chevron multiply to straight warp, fabric breaker, ripstop, solid woven, self-extinguishing, oil, heat, fire and frost resistant.

All our site service personnel are Safety Passport approved and trained in performing site-specific risk assessment and method statements.
