The complete MATO conveyor belt fastening system combines a lacer, bed, wire rope winch or tirfo, clamp, cutter, skiver, lacing pins, wave master and clips to produce a cost-effective, durable alternative to hot and cold splicing.

Three specific types of conveyor belt fasteners are produced by MATO in South Africa:

  • The MATO U30 Series for conveyor belts with a tensile strength up to 3 500kN
  • The MATO S30 Series for conveyor belts with a tensile strength up to 1 400 kN
  • The MATO E30 Series for conveyor belts with a tensile strength up to 1 400 kN

The MATO U30 Series has a stainless steel plate and spring steel staple material. This results in the strongest possible connection of the splice to ensure the longest possible service life.

The MATO S30 Series is recommended for medium strength belts in coal mining applications, quarries, as well as cement and steel plants and other industrial applications.

The MATO E30 system is manufactured from special steel, the plate and staple design and configuration have been optimised through rigorous testing. The splice provides a strong connection and good service life.
