New steel cord bucket elevator belt Truco 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.
