The Flexco booth will feature new Flexco R9S rivet-hinged conveyor belt fasteners for demanding applications and high belt widths, while the Power Set rivet driver tool is portable and makes quick work of routine rivet installation.

Also being demonstrated is the recently introduced, patented Flexco Rapid Loader collated rivet strips, said to speed and simplify installation of Flexco rivet-hinged conveyor belt fasteners by loading 20 rivets into a guide block at one time.

Flexco, headquartered near Chicago, Illinois, services the world's belt conveyors through subsidiaries operating in California, Michigan, Mexico, England, Germany, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

Founded in 1907 and certified under ISO-9001:2000 International Standards for quality management, the company markets its broad line of products through a worldwide network of distributors, under the brand names Flexco, Alligator, Clipper and Tatch-A-Cleat.
