Newly formulated for greater tear resistance, the manufacturer notes, Flexane Fast Cure Rubber Putty enables quick and economical repair of worn conveyor belts and other equipment. The urethane compound is also suitable for coating metal splices, filling control/expansion joints in concrete or metal, and forming protective linings in machinery subject to abrasion, impact, or vibration. Curing to a tough, medium-hard rubber, it bonds to rubber, metal, concrete, fiberglass, and wood. Maximum elongation is typically 450 percent (ASTM D412), and tear resistance is typically 265 pli (ASTM D624). The putty withstands service temperatures up to 120_F wet or 180_F dry. Dielectric strength is 350 volts/mil.

Demag Cranes & Components’ KBK Free Standing Work Station Crane offers a product- and material-handling solution to concrete production facilities where floor space is at a premium and ceiling area is too obstructed or high to accommodate overhead handling equipment. Moreover, product engineers contend, as material handling requirements change with continuous improvement of manufacturing processes, the versatility of a free-standing workstation allows an overhead material handling system to be easily dismantled, moved, and reassembled to fit new production plans.

The columns of the floor-mounted lightweight crane systems are spread to allow easy access into the production line. The system’s 13-ft. 1-in. standard overall height provides ample clearance over production equipment.

KBK models are available in a variety of standard bridge lengths up to 26 ft. and runways up to 78 ft. with capacities up to 2,200 lb. An enclosed track system employs a pendulating hanger in conjunction with an articulated crane eye on the bridge to minimize binding in the end truck at any pick location along the bridge. Additionally, trolleys promote low-maintenance operation and a long life cycle. The system comes complete with structure, enclosed track, electric festooning, and load trolleys.

To complete the material handling package, a variety of chain hoists is offered for high-performance to light-duty applications. For critically precise pick-and-place functions, a technically advanced variable speed hoist is available in capacities up to 1,000 lb. Each DC-Pro and DCS-Pro hoist is equipped with internal diagnostics that provide operational data, such as number of service hours.
