Belt conveyor is equipped with a number of pulleys that are attached by a lengthy fabric loop or other material. Generally, one of those pulleys is driven by motor in order to pull the belt with it. This type of conveyor is utilized to shift heavy material from one location of processing unit to the other. The design of this conveyor can be complex or this can be obtained in simple design. We develop or design this belt as per the precise requirement s of customers. Belt conveyors are widely used powered conveyors for their multi purpose function and cost effectiveness. These are also used for deposition of cartons in a static manner. In this type of conveyor, an irregular or regular shaped product is directly transported on its belt. The transported material can also be heavy, light weight or in small in shape. This type of conveyor utilizes superior grade belting items that help to reduce stretchability of belts which in turn helps to reduce their maintenance charge by adjusting belt tension level. The belt conveyors adopt straight line direction or modify their height level during conveyance of materials. Some of their applications require transportation of products or cartons towards a fixed direction. In factory warehouses and automated distribution units, conveyors are utilized as a dependable and heavy duty equipments. Integrated with computer regulated pallet handling machine, these types of conveyors are useful for improving manufacturing capacity and raising sales figure of organizations. These belt conveyors are excellent options for those organizations who want to shift bulk amount of products without raising their transportation charge or labor cost. These are also advantageous for organizations with limited storage space and for increasing transportation capacity of those companies.
Rubber conveyor belts are ideal for transportation of products with uneven bottom parts and also smaller items that sink between two rollers. Belt conveyors consist of metal frame and both of their ends are equipped with rollers and these rollers are powered by belting slides around the solid metal made frame bed for movement of product. In its heavy duty design, instead of belting, rollers are used. The special design of rollers helps to lower the rate of friction caused by heavy load on the belting.
The even surface of the belt is useful for placing of box or other items. The inner part of this belt has high strength and has irregular construction in order to prevent tear and wear caused by pulling of motorized wheels. Its external part is featured with soft surface and is protected against impact. This exterior part is handled by workers during transportation of materials.
Belt conveyors consist of hard to navigate corners. Straight line need to be maintained for trouble free functioning of pulley and belt systems. But, most of the warehouses do not state clearly about the path and destination of objects. In that situation, a series of belt conveyors act as the perfect solutions. One of the advantages of small conveyors is that these have necessary angle that helps in their easy handling.
Belt conveyors are effective transportation medium that helps to lower dispatch cost of products. Different types of belts and conveyors are available in the market and these need to be selected on the basis of several factors. These factors are mentioned below:
