A ‘champion’ as innovation goes!

Ladies and Gentlemen – In the average supplier’s corner we have an average roller, usually confined to the heavyweight division – and in the Afri-Tech mining supplies corner, weighing in at an average of 1/3 of the weight of a standard roller, the Afri-Tech Sliding Bar is a true bona fide ‘light weight’ and a ‘champion’ to say the least.

What makes it great?

Essentially what sets this Champion apart is the ease of handling, no moving parts and long life due to the use of the best wear materials available in the market. The weight of the replacement bar alone makes a massive contribution to the crucial safety factors of lifting, moving and installation. With this much lighter replacement bar, handling becomes effortless compared to traditional rollers. The reduced weight also contributes to less time being lost on breakdowns, as well as no need routine greasing of changing of bearings during maintenance. Maybe that’s why we refer to it as being a ‘champion’ because in these tight economic times, any ‘money saver’ is a champion!’
