Conveyor Belts & Machine Tapes in the Printing Industry

Benson Beltings are the UK's most experienced independent supplier and installer of belts to the printing industry. Our experience spans the many different sectors of paper printing, finishing and converting.

Production processes dictate that a vast range of belts with different characteristics is required to meet the demands of the application. Whilst very often underestimated, using the correct style, specification and sometimes the brand of belt can be critical to the optimal performance of printing and finishing machinery.

The "Habasit Network" Connection

Benson Beltings were a founder member of the Habasit Network Partnership ensuring that our staff are fully trained with Habasit belts and equipment and that the highest quality products are supported with the highest quality service. Habasit belts are fitted to much of the worlds best known machinery as original equipment.

Magazine, Newspaper, Brochure Manufacture

Machine TapesBenson Beltings can supply the complete range of belts for both sheet-fed and web-fed printing machines such as Heidelberg and MAN-Roland and for rotogravure equipment made by KBA and Cerutti. Our belt fitters can usually completely re-tape the folding section of such presses in a fraction of the time taken by a print companies own staff freeing them to concentrate on other important maintenance issues like pulley replacement or engineering work.

Finishing Equipment

Print Finishing EquipmentPrinted product can be finished on site or at specialist print finishing companies and Benson Beltings offer every style of belting required for trimming, stitching, gatherers, binding, stacking, inserting, poly-bagging, and shrink-wrapping as well as the simple conveyor belts used to transport product from process to process and ultimately to despatch.

Direct Mail

Direct Mail EquipmentThis sector of the printing industry has enjoyed dramatic growth in recent years and increased mechanisation has been achieved with the use of very specific belting styles very often of a truly endless construction and specially formulated PU or rubber coatings. Benson Beltings stock and distribute Esband and Habasit Grabber belts specifically for such machines as MBO, Stahl, Ehret, Buhr and Boewe.

The "Complete Service Package"

Over a number of years we have developed a support service that is the envy of our competitors. Subject to a full survey of the manufacturing plant, including the co-ordination of information from O.E.M. manuals, site measurements and
discussion with the customer, Benson Beltings will submit a number of alternative service options. In the first instance, Benson Beltings will
guarantee to supply genuine O.E.M. specification belts and machine tapes where this is requested. Once the precise requirements of the customer have been established we can quote for the supply of open rolls of material, belts and tapes with the ends already prepared for joining, or pre-joined belts ready for installation.
Benson Beltings can also advise on and supply, storage and stock control equipment and offer a regular stock monitoring and replenishment service. We offer a full installation service for those who would prefer that critical belts are joined on site by our fully trained fitters accompanied by training programmes for customers who wish to "do-it-themselves".

The "Single Source" for your Belting Requirements

As an independent company we have negotiated supply arrangements with all of the leading international manufacturers of belting and machine tapes and our stock of over 300 different specifications ensures that lead times are minimised. For specific sizes and types of belt we offer a stockholding service.
