In 1994 Dura-Belt introduced the “World’s Longest Belt Warranty”. To the best
of our knowledge, it still remains as the longest belt warranty for elastic urethane
belting in the world -- ten full years or the life of the belt, whichever is longer.
Over the years Dura-Belt has developed many new products, including a
proprietary color process for coloring belts after being spliced, anti-snag flat
belts, anti vibration belts, Long-Life HT (High Tension) belts made from
Cyclothane-B, extremely powerful HEHT (Highly Elastic High Tension) belts
that move heavy loads on up to 19 rollers zones, the patented Speedy Belt
Installer and metal detectable elastic food-grade belts. It also added to its product
list idler and drive pulleys, plus Poly-V® roller end-cap inserts and Hutchinson’s
ConvyXonic® Poly-V belts that can “move mountains at high speeds”. The
company regularly introduces new products, most of which are inspired by its
customers with whom it works closely.
Dura-Belt owns a state-of-the-art plant in Hilliard, Ohio that was built in 2012
and designed especially to manufacture urethane belting and other accessory
products for conveyors. It has a sales office in Poland.
When running three shifts with the equivalent of 50 employees, Dura-Belt’s
robots have the production capacity to produce approximately 90,000 O-ring
belts per day.
Dura-Belt’s mission is to manufacture innovative, high-quality products and sell
them world wide at a fair profit, while providing free technical help from the “Belt
Doctor”, plus the fastest, friendliest service in a healthy, happy environment.
Many of the products you use everyday have been conveyed at one time or another
on rollers powered by Dura-Belt’s belts. Everything from food, beverages, medicine,
hardware, tools, household goods, appliances, electronics, jewelry, clothing, magazines,
books, lubricants – anything packaged in boxes – has likely been transported on belts
that we manufacturer. Our belts are used world-wide in virtually every first-world
country on earth, including China. Forty percent of our production is exported.
Our company was formed in Ohio in 1987 to sell urethane belting to distributors,
installers, and OEMs. In 1991 the company was purchased by Jim Hammond, the
“Belt Doctor”, a physicist who worked at Jet Propulsion Labs and was Director of
Technology at Atlantic Richfield Corp (ARCO). Mr. Hammond’s goal was to bring
high technology to the relatively low tech belting business, including a quality control
system that was a forerunner of ISO 9000. Within a year the company’s name was
changed to Dura-Belt to reflect the development of a proprietary Super-Strong welding
process that made our belt splices virtually unbreakable.
