45 years of Excellence in Education

A firm handshake. A well-stocked tool box. A skilled technician.

There was a time when this alone was enough. In our changing world of mergers and acquisitions, growing conglomerates, and multifaceted corporations, every belt splicer must answer the one question that every mine, every quarry, every factory, is asking: “Why should I choose you to splice my conveyor belts?”

Almex Institute gives you a definitive answer and the credentials to back it up.

“We have the Almex Advantage: All my technicians are Almex Institute certified.”

Founded upon the principals of excellence and value which have made the Almex brand of vulcanizers the product of choice in countries around the globe, Almex Institute is housed in a state-of-the-art facility in Atlanta, Georgia. Custom designed to meet the needs of the new generation of workers; the new Almex Institute training program and facility are geared toward bridging the gap for those new to the field of splicing and updating veterans on cutting edge methods and technologies.

What topics will be covered?

  • Steel cord belt splicing
  • Step splicing of fabric belts (hot & cold process)
  • Finger splicing heavy weight rubber belting (hot & cold process)
  • Pulley lagging and rubber lining
  • Vulcanizer set-up and operation

How will the materials be presented?

In an effort to address the diversities found in every group, Almex Institute training techniques will include a variety of approaches and learning opportunities including:

  • Classroom instruction
  • Small group discussion
  • Question and answer sessions
  • Multimedia presentations
  • Hands-on application
  • Exclusive training manuals

Who will facilitate?

Led by Michael Cremeens, the Almex Institute instructors will bring experience and product knowledge to the classroom. Mike’s experiences over the last thirty years run the gambit from belt splicer to company owner to manufacturing and rubber processing to technical training in over twenty-five countries. Mike has authored numerous items for industry publications including contributions to NIBA "Beltline" and the Rubber Manufacturers Association conveyor belt handbook. Michael Cremeens brings humor and skill to his topic and has personally instructed more people in the art of belt splicing than any other individual in North America.

Hotel and Restaurants

Many hotel accommodations are possible near the office. I would recommend this one or one of the others next door to this one.
Holiday Inn Express & Suites Atlanta East
7846 Stonecrest Square
Lithonia GA 30038
Phone: (678) 325-4830

FYI - Near this hotel is a large mall and a number of restaurants around the mall.

Transportation from Airport

You can take a cab at $70+ or an airport shuttle. This airport shuttle company travels to Lithonia where the hotel is located for $50. However, each additional passenger is $10, so if more than one of you take the same shuttle it will save money. You can book a reservation on the website. Airport Metro Shuttle

Transportation to Office (Class Room)

It is not Almex’s responsibly to make sure everyone gets from the hotel to the classroom and back each day. But, some of the other class members will have vehicles and may be available for helping out if you need a ride.

There is a parking lot in the back of the Almex plant with a door that goes directly into the classroom.

Class Breaks and Lunch

Almex will provide lunch each day with drinks and snacks at breaks. If you have special dietary needs please let us know.
