Lorbrand manufacture high quality conveyor belt products including idlers, rollers, pulleys and conveyor steelwork used in the mining, quarrying, agricultural, ship loading, utility, material and bulk solids handling industries. The headquarters is based near Johannesburg, with additional manufacturing facilities in Argentina, Chile and sales offices in Australia.
Lorbrand has successfully supplied idlers for large conveyor systems in Africa, Australia, North and South America, Europe and Southeast Asia. All employees are geared towards carrying out the high demands of planning, production and delivery.
Our idler range utilises centrifugally sealed rollers which have been used successfully throughout the world since the 1960s. The duty ratings vary from Cema B to Cema F in addition to our own rating, SERIES 60 which exceeds all the Cema ratings.
The latest design and manufacturing technology together with on-going programmes are used to ensure the highest quality of components. This includes AUTOCAD design facilities, laser alignment and measuring equipment. R&D consists of the monitoring of selected underground and surface installations over several years.
In-house test rigs and specialist monitoring equipment are used to improve the quality of our products. Manufacturing tolerances are continually monitored and new manufacturing techniques consistent with the latest technology are implemented.
An example of this programme has been the high accuracy of our conveyor bases and supporting structures which results in excellent belt tracking and the reduction of belt deviation loads.
