Visit Smiley Monroe VIRTUALLY at #HilleadDigital


Smiley Monroe will once again be exhibiting at Hillhead – except this year it’s going ONLINE.


📅 30 – 31 March 2021

🎟️ Registration –



The big theme on our virtual booth this year will be our UK and Ireland offering, so we’ll be showcasing our line of belt products designed specifically to maximize uptime in the toughest mobile equipment applications, including Zip Clip® mechanically fastened belts.



We’re the global market leader in the production of highly customised Endless conveyor belts for manufacturers of mobile materials processing equipment (OEMs). With over 40 years’ experience under our belts, we remain determined to help our customers succeed by working closely together from the machine design process right through to serial production. Our team is always on hand to troubleshoot, problem solve and collaborate to ensure our product offering is fit for your purpose.



We offer full rolls and cut lengths of high quality flat and chevron conveyor belting in a range of popular patterns and specifications.


ZIP CLIP® – The World’s Fastest Replacement Belt

Designed to maximize uptime for mobile processing equipment operating in remote locations, our problem-solving Zip Clip® replacement belt has been taking the industry by storm since its launch in 2015. Thanks to its recessed, mechanically fastened splice, Zip Clip® belts are friendly to conveyor components like conveyor skirting rubber, and the secure Screw-in or Push-in connecting pin with collars is the secret to its speed and ease of install. Keeping a Zip Clip® belt in stock near your most critical conveyors can get you back up and running in less than 1 hour and is your insurance policy in the event of an emergency breakdown.


Just how much time and money Zip Clip® belts can save you is the focus of customer case studies and ‘how to’ videos that we’ll be sharing at the show.



Smiley Monroe’s Endless conveyor belts can be further customised with features such as siderails and cross-cleats, hot moulded to the conveyor belt’s carrying surface to ensure long product life.



ToughFlex® is our all-round conveyor belt hero. Built to take on the industry’s toughest conveying applications – like mobile construction and demolition (C&D) waste processing – where the need for cut, gouge and impact resistance necessitates a premium belt. Constructed with a special weave of 2 reinforced, fabric plies and an additional binder warp, our ToughFlex® carcass is protected by heavy duty, wear resistant top and bottom rubber covers to resist puncturing.


KING ROLLER™ – Energy Efficient Polymer Conveyor Roller

Our polymer King Rollers are a match made in heaven for mobile processing equipment. Significantly lighter than steel, conveyor weight reduction and reduced power consumption are just 2 major economical and environmental benefits of switching to King Rollers. And its self-cleaning surface greatly reduces the risk of build up from carryback material – the main cause of belt tracking problems, material spillage and the premature wear and failure of conventional steel rollers. Isn’t it time you joined the quiet revolution?



Smiley Monroe is continuously investing in the latest automated cutting technology, capable of precision cutting and drilling profiles, patterns, holes and slots in a variety of materials – from cork to rubber sheeting. We produce value added ready-to-fit parts, such as conveyor skirting rubber, gaskets, seals and washers – for a wide range of applications, including conveyor and screen encapsulation, slurry tanks, and oil seals. All parts are pen-marked, as standard, for easy identification and re-ordering.


IMPACT BARS / MODULES – Extremely Low Friction For Long Wear Life

Impact Bars fitted at conveyor transfer and feed points reduce the risk of costly puncture damage to your conveyor belts. Spillage, surge loading and airborne dust at conveyor transfer/feed points cause a number of costly environmental and safety problems. Material build up, seized rollers and conveyor belt wear erode maintenance budgets. Smiley Monroe offers Impact Bars and proven solutions to spillage and dust escaping at transfer / feed points. Our system is tailored to suit your specific application and the severity of the problem, using standard components.



Developed for longer life sealing at the most punishing transfer load points and feedboots, our new energy-saving, low friction Primary and Secondary 65 shore A polyurethane (PU) conveyor skirting is mobilized and ready for special ops.
