A conveyor belt system is a continuous moving belt that carries materials or packages from one position to another. Belting system is used in conveyor transport systems such as moving sidewalks, escalators and on numerous manufacturing assembly lines.
Conveyor belts consist of two end pulleys and are typically suspended with a continuous loop of material that rotates about them. Conveyor belt systems are commonly used in an array of material transport applications such as food processing, manufacturing and heavy industries. They are widely used to transport industrial and agricultural materials such as coal, grain, ores, et cetera. Conveyors systems are also are used in self-unloading bulk freighters and live bottom trucks.
Cargo, boxes and piazzas belts
Conveyor belting system uses reciprocating planks to move cargo through the floor. In contrast is a roller conveyor system that uses a series of rotating rollers to convey boxes or pallets. A conveyor belts dimensions is flexible to match the user’s specifications or application requirements. The belt materials and pattern vary for specific uses such as bakery oven belts for pies and pizzas, roofing stones conveying, extracted gravel transport and so on.
