Belt conveyors suit the movement of goods on flat or elevated surfaces when the speed of travel and the spacing of goods require control. They play an important role in the manufacturing process including the transport of the raw materials and components to assembly and the materials handling and shipping of finished products.
Belt conveyors are flexible and can be designed to be fixed, portable or telescopic for either horizontal applications or inclinations between floors and mezzanines providing a link between multi-floor systems. Our drive systems can operate in a variety of speeds with high efficiency to suit both short and long belt conveyors. Our conveyors provide smooth transportation of the most fragile components to large heavy items.
In the horizontal plane, belt conveyors are suitable for assembly platforms for continuous manufacturing purposes where the speed of the belt can be varied to the needs of the process.
Expert design is important for selecting the right belt conveyor for your system. Our experienced engineers will design a belt conveyor system for your particular manufacturing or material handling needs using the latest materials and drive systems.
Products size and weight are taken into account when designing belt conveyors. The width of the belt and the angle of incline determine the most suitable drive system and the composition of the belt.
The extendable gravity conveyor has the following characteristics:
- Ideal for small and medium freight handling
- Easily manoeuvred by one person
- Extendable and retractable using a single hand movement
- Up to four-stage units are available to 12 metres fully extended
