Griz­zly Splice 

The new gen­er­a­tion of round baler belt

More durable, more pow­er­ful, more ener­gy effi­cient: Using a spe­cial sewing process com­bined with a high-per­for­mance fab­ric, Artemis pro­vides farm­ers and baler man­u­fac­tur­ers with the Griz­zly Splice, an extreme­ly durable end­less belt.

The advan­tages

All the advan­tages of the Griz­zly Splice at a glance:

Longer ser­vice life due to sewing at dou­ble press­ing pressure

The heart of a mod­ern round baler is the bal­ing belt. It enables the farmer to high­ly com­press hay, straw or silage. Farms around the world have been suc­cess­ful­ly using Artemis round baler belts for years.

Mak­ing prod­ucts and process­es more effi­cient, reli­able and bet­ter are con­stant chal­lenges in agri­cul­tur­al tech­nol­o­gy. Inno­va­tions in har­vest­ing machin­ery are not always seen at first glance, but they show up in direct use in the field. The new Griz­zly Splice round baler belt from Artemis exceeds pre­vi­ous requirements. 

The name Griz­zly Splice alone makes it clear: this is an extreme­ly resilient end­less belt with an excep­tion­al­ly long prod­uct life. The experts at Artemis have devel­oped a new man­u­fac­tur­ing process with low­er ener­gy con­sump­tion and have achieved even greater strength, a longer ser­vice life and excel­lent ser­vice prop­er­ties of the belts.

Sewing instead of vulcanization

Sewing instead of vul­can­iza­tion — a com­plete­ly new type of join­ing technology

The vul­can­iza­tion process of stan­dard end­less belts involves a great deal of effort. Thanks to the nov­el join­ing process of already vul­can­ized meter goods, the cost­ly and ener­gy-inten­sive vul­can­iza­tion process can now be bypassed. 

The new process makes it pos­si­ble to design pro­duc­tion sequences even more flex­i­bly. At the same time, sav­ings are achieved in ener­gy and pro­duc­tion capacities. 

This solu­tion was achieved by using a new type of man­u­fac­tur­ing process for this prod­uct: the sewing process. The new man­u­fac­tur­ing process is inno­v­a­tive because the way the belt ends are joined is mechan­i­cal, and at the same time the join­ing seam is opti­mal­ly pro­tect­ed by being embed­ded in the rub­ber cov­er layer.

The spe­cial seam 

Spe­cial seam for stronger con­nec­tion and longer ser­vice life

The struc­ture of the end­less belt and, above all, the spe­cial fab­ric enable excel­lent straight run­ning with low­er ener­gy require­ments; the fab­ric is high­ly flex­i­ble in the run­ning direc­tion and yet very sta­ble in trans­verse direction. 

Through field tests orga­nized in-house by Artemis in coop­er­a­tion with select­ed farm­ers, the com­pa­ny cre­ates con­fi­dence for prod­ucts and ideas.

More durable, more effi­cient, more envi­ron­men­tal­ly friendly

Resource effi­cien­cy is an impor­tant fac­tor in pro­duc­tion. Thus, Artemis and every end cus­tomer of this new prod­uct con­tributes to more sus­tain­abil­i­ty. On the cus­tomer side, the new belt splice ensures more longevi­ty of the belt with a green­er foot­print at the same time, among oth­er things through less ener­gy con­sump­tion at the dri­ve thanks to the dynam­ic base material. 

Artemis has used its exper­tise in screen­ing and con­vey­ing in har­vesters, includ­ing the Silen­tium Dri­ve (belts instead of steel chains in the inclined con­vey­or of com­bines), as well as cus­tomer feed­back to cre­ate this new type of splice. It is unique in the mar­ket and — to the ben­e­fit of farm­ers and con­trac­tors — makes the belt much low­er main­te­nance and more durable.
