Conveyor belt testing facilities at Headquaters

Q.P.I. is soon to have conveyor belt testing equipment to be manufactured and installed at our headquarters in Leicestershire. This will enable both Q.P.I. and our valued customers to test the quality of the belting supplied which we believe will make us an industry first for the UK.
Our equipment will test adhesion levels of rubber to fabrics and steel cords as well as breaking strengths of ply and steel cords. A separate rubber abrasion tester, which will test for wear resistance and elongation at break is also being installed.


Qpi visit our manufacturing site

Visits are carried out several times per year to ensure the strictest standards in quality are continually met. We are very pleased to announce that all expectations were exceeded for our most recent visit which was specifically linked to the Glensanda project that QPI has been commissioned for. 

On this visit we also took the opportunity to view and inspect the extensions to both the first and second factories which we believe will make our factory the largest roller & drum producer in the world.

Quality proven - Tests at one of the largest quarries in Europe have shown that Q.P.I supplied idlers have out lasted all of the competition. Independent testing by the quarry took 7 rollers made by different manufacturers and placed the rollers in positions on the conveyor that worked the hardest. Results showed that some manufacturers only lasted a few weeks whilst Q.P.I idlers easily outlasted all other manufacturers.
