This is our mission, motto and philosophy
For over 30 years, CBM's technicans and engineers have carefully monitored the internal and external condition of our clients' conveyor belting. They then analyse the data and make recommendations for their maintenance personnel to perform. Thus ensuring the timely and orderley removal & repair of events that could otherwise lead to catastrophic / premature failure of the conveyor belt.
Our services can be used in reverse as a quality assurance tool, to see that subcontractors have carried out the prescribed maintenance and to see that the splices are safe and that there is no threat to the conveyor belt life thus ensuring your production quotas.
CBM is an International Organization based in Sydney, Australia, that has been condition monitoring conveyor belting since 1980. During that time CBM has been able to develop the most comprehensive conveyor belt condition monitoring program available in the world today.
Our Aim –
“To Extend The Safe Working Life Of All Conveyor Belting”.
CBM now uses the most up-to-date reporting techniques available. Data from your belt is stored digitally and over time becomes part of a database. This database is carefully analysed by CBM’s professional technicians, using intelligent propriety software, from which conclusions and recommendations are made. These are passed on to you either on an “exception only basis”, or in the form of a comprehensive written report – whichever you prefer. The written report format has been very carefully structured to make it easy to read, understand and to act on. The reports are available as hard copy, or in a variety of electronic formats.
There are generally three types of conveyor belting used in the materials handling industry –
Please Note: There are conveyors which do not conform to the above statements.
In order to understand the market for belt condition monitoring it is important to understand the typical modes of failure for the above belting types.
The aim of the Condition Monitoring Service is to extend the safe working life of all conveyor belting. This is achieved through careful monitoring of the belts' deterioration with use and the orderly repair or removal of events which could lead to premature belt failure.
Specific elements monitored include:
CBM is also used as a supplementary Quality Assurance and Risk Management tool in the overall belt condition and splice construction processes.
The cost of applying any effective condition monitoring technique to high capital cost plant is small in relation to the achievable benefits. In critical applications the gains can be enormous, with significantly increased “service life” and reduced or eliminated un-scheduled downtime.
Conveyor belting is NO exception.
CBM requires highly specialised equipment, techniques and experienced analysts. This is available to you as a service.
Meaning that you do not need to maintain these resources in-house, but can access this specialist knowledge only when you need it.
With the use of cbmRemote the site requirements are minimised. cbmRemote makes use of dedicated sensing equipment fitted permanently to the conveyor and accessed using a data connection. This allows CBM to interrogate the target belt remotely as often as is necessary to achieve a satisfactory level of monitoring. There is also the added comfort of knowing that you can call for a scan at any time if the belting is involved in an accident or other type of event.
Effectively used Conveyor Belt Monitoring will minimise or eliminate the risk of Catastrophic Failure
A worldwide leader in Conveyor Belt Monitoring with millions of kilometres of belt monitored, CBM has a long tradition of Research and Development and bringing to market beneficial technologies.
Technical knowledge and constant training of staff and distributors, ability to provide timely targeted information, are strengths that we appreciate.
CBM is completely independent of the conveyor belt manufacturers. Our systems are designed to work on all conveyor belts, of any speed and all material types.
