Martin's Mr Blade programme extends to UK
First publishedin Aggregates Business Europe
Martin Engineering, a global manufacturer of conveyor belt cleaning technologies, has introduced a factory-direct programme to deliver and install fresh replacement polyurethane blades.
The company says that building on the successful network introduced in the USA, the Mr Blade UK programme will allow it to maintain an electronic record of operating conditions on all conveyors using its equipment.
This data will be updated regularly, providing customer management with an operational assessment of vital components, including recommendations for avoiding costly failures and system downtime.
Further, certified Martin service technicians will adjust, repair or replace the main frame and tensioner of any belt cleaner at no charge, for as long as the customer maintains a Mr Blade service relationship.
“This first UK van will be targeting the Midlands area including the counties of Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and South Yorkshire, where there’s a high concentration of aggregate producers, cement plants and other users of belt cleaners,” says Chris Schmelzer, director of the Wear Components Business Group.
