What is a Belt Conveyor System?

Belt conveyor systems are the most universally used conveyor systems on the planet. Belt conveyors are the reason most conveyors are generally called “conveyor belts”. Belt conveyors are used in just about every industry, and are the most simple way of conveying items generally from point A to point B in an automated way. They are used in warehouses, in restaurants, in airports, and even in your gym in the form of a treadmill.

How Do Belt Conveyors Work?

Belt conveyor systems are constructed of a closed-loop “belt” of material, wrapped around two or more pulleys. As the pulleys rotate, the belt rotates around them, moving the materials in the desired direction.

The system can be modified to match the requirements for what will be transported, with consideration for the weight, hardness, sharpness, size, temperature, etc, of the material. For instance, the belt could be made of different materials, such as rubber, plastic, leather, fabric, metal, and more. Additional supports and motors can be added as needed to support heavier materials, protective edges or walls can be added to protect sensitive materials, and belt conveyors can be constructed on an incline/decline to match the environment they are in.

What is the Best Use of Belt Conveyor Systems?

In general, belt conveyor systems are a perfect place to start when considering your needs. While they fit most situations, sometimes they need modifications, or there may be a type of conveyor system that works better for you.
