When you go bare, go all the way bare!  RPI Bare Back belts don’t have unsightly bleed through! 

The purpose of Bare Back belts is to lower the coefficient of friction for operation in slider bed applications.  Belts with bleed through or rubber residue on the fabric side decrease the effectiveness of bare back belt.  This increases the drag / resistance the belt is under, causing motors to work harder to move the belt.

Call RPI for Bare Back belts that don’t need a wax job!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!
What will 2016, the Year of the Red Fire Monkey have in store for you?

RPI wants to help you prepare for the coming year!  Below is your horoscope for 2016, we hope the year has great things in store for you.

Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) have plenty of room and time to work on their personal passions this year. Uranus is still in the heart of Aries, so there may be times when you need to remind yourself to not wander off too far on your own.

Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) get their share of cosmic attention in 2016. There are four Mercury retrogrades, mostly in Earth signs. Work with greater care and then you should experience few – if any – mistakes or misunderstandings. Things will go so smoothly that it may seem too good to be true. It’s not!

Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) may feel more comfortable in 2016 than they did in 2015. Teamwork, communication, and mutual understanding are highlighted, so this year will feel natural to you. The Moon begins this year in the first degree of Libra and that helps you all year long.

Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) are always sensitive, and this can be an advantage for you in 2016. You can keenly spot when complications are developing, and from whom/where.
