Parts of the Belt Conveyor System
26th May 2022While there are numerous types of belt conveyor systems, all serve the same purpose of transporting materials. Some products may require a system without a belt, using only rollers or wheels for flexible movement. However, many belt conveyor systems rely on a frame with a belt and possible support rollers to carry materials and products efficiently.
All belt conveyor systems have three main components — the aluminum profile, the driving unit and the extremity unit.
In a belt conveyor system, the aluminum profile consists of the frame, belt and any supports. Systems that use a belt are generally powered by a motor, though belt conveyor systems can also use gravity or manual force to function. Motorized belt conveyor are ideal for industrial use as they are more reliable and efficient — the driving unit for such systems would include the motor bracket, electrical drive and any counter bearings.
