The Belt Line is the official publication of NIBA-The Belting Association. The newsletter is issued quarterly with an additional special issue on the Annual Convention in August. Issues contain news about NIBA, the belting industry, technical articles, and member information on topics including equipment for sale, personnel, facilities and products.
These Tech Notes have been collected from various sources which relate to the proper fabrication and operation of conveyor belting, recognizing that following production of the belt, independent fabricators/distributors must customize the product for customer use in a variety of applications and utilize a variety of operating equipment.
A collection of technical articles that have been published in issues of the NIBA Belt Line since 2000 are available here.
Includes DVDs, CDs, Print Publications, Membership Directories and Member Plaques.
Training videos published by NIBA prior to 2001 are available for free on YouTube. We make the videos available because much of the information is still relevant to the industry today.
A number of videos are available on the benefits of NIBA membership as well as programs and services available. Historical training videos produced by NIBA are also available on YouTube.
