staining process is performed on at
least two parts for each stain color. If
the stain test shows that the finishes
produced using the test belts meet
plant standards, then 30 components
are sanded on the test belts for a compatibility study.
When evaluating widebelts, application
engineers from the abrasives manufacturer typically spend a week in a plant.
Central to this process is maintaining a
thorough log of belt changes and the regular checking of workpiece thicknesses.
A belt-change log sheet provides
spaces for recording each belt change,
including the date and time each belt
was put on and removed, the reason
for the change and the operator’s
name. The operator must record belt
changes because this information
provides the basis for the evaluation
of new belts and comparisons with the
performance of the previously used
At the end of a week of testing
and measuring, it will be clear to all
involved whether changing to a new
abrasive in a particular widebelt appli-
cation will improve a shop’s performance and its productivity. ●
