A conveyor is a common piece of mechanical handling equipment that moves materials from one location to another.

Conveyors are very useful in applications that involve the transportation of heavy or bulky materials.

Conveyor systems also allow quick and efficient transportation for a wide variety of materials, making them very popular in material handling and packaging industries.

There are many types of conveying systems available that are used according to the various needs of different industries.

Example - Chain conveyors – floor and overhead as well as chain conveyors that consist of enclosed tracks.Some examples are:

• I-Beam

• Power and Free

• Hand pushed trolleys

Conveyors Offer Numerous Benefits:

Safety transport of materials from one level to another, which when done by human labor would be strenuous and expensive. Can be installed almost anywhere and are much safer than using a forklift or other machines to move materials.

More loads of all shapes, sizes and weight. Also, many have advanced safety features that help to prevent accidents. Variety of options available for running conveying systems, including hydraulic, mechanical and fully automated systems which are equipped to fit individual needs.

Conveyor Belts are important parts in conveyor systems that continuously transport items from one area to another by an endless flexible and flat piece of material on a series of rollers.The conveyor belts are usually powered by an electric motor and operate continuously and automated therefore cutting down production time and labor costs.

Conveyor belts are made up from an assortment of different materials, all of which must be durable, long-lasting and also able to safely operate without interruption.

They are constructed out of either seamless and/or flexible hard pieces that are able to move easily.

Rubber Belting is the most common type, closely followed by Polyurethane belting, which is sometimes referred to as urethane belting or plastic conveyor belts.

There are many different types of belts within the manufacturing industry and therefore there are many different kinds of industrial belts. The most common belt is the flat belting, which operates continuously and is often referred to as endless belting.

Round belts are most commonly used as power transmission belts. They can also be used to keep flat belts , securely on their rollers during twists and turns in conveying processes.

Conveyor belts are also used in many engine varieties, which include power transmission belts such as V-belts. Timing belting is used in interfere combustion engines and is manufactured with small teeth that interlock with engine gears and cogs.Examples Of Belts:

Textile Belts:

• Cotton fabric belts

• Polyamide fabric belts

• Polyester fabric belts

• Aramid fabric belts

• Rip-stop belts

Steel Belts:

• Steel rope belts (steel cord belt with metal weft and steel cord belt with textile weft)

• Steel Cord Fabric

Construction Materials Used For Conveyor Belts:

Cover Material – is used for the protection of carcass from damages such as load and water. The cover material also provides friction between belt and driving pulley and between belt and material.

Carcass – used for the transmitting tensite forces from the driving pulley and absorbs the impact which occurs in loading material onto conveyor and carrying the belt with material over the carrying idlers.

Materials normally used are: nylon, polyester, vinylon and cotton.

Coating Rubber – This is used to maintain good adhesion of carcass. Speciality compounded coating rubber is used.

Conveyor Belt Manufacturing Process:

Raw rubber compound is manufactured with the use of Kneaders (internal mixers) and two rolls mixing mills under proper temperature control.

Pre-heating of Fabric is done with steam drums to get rid of moisture is used to coat rubber compound on Fabrics and for making the top and bottom covers

Heavy- duty machines are then utilized to paste the desired numbers of piles of rubberized fabric. Different covers are pasted on top and bottom of conveyor belt also known as top and bottom cover of conveyor belts

The final process is curing by vulcanizing. Raw carcass is cured in hydraulic press under carefully controlled condition of temperature.

Tips For Choosing The Right Conveyor Belt:

Have information readily available on the following:

• Speed and cycle time needed

• Environmental (cold,wet,dry)

• Direction (incline or decline)

• Weight (product impact on conveyor)

• Product releases (load and unload)
