Generally, conveyor belts are made of a rubber or plastic composite combined with one or more layers of textile material or steel cables of different diameters. A conveyor belt can be made of polyvinyl chloride and fabric such as polyester rubber or styrene-butadiene and several layers of polyester or nylon fabric. The various uses of conveyor belts can be divided into categories of general and bulk material handling, food processing, and manufacturing and assembly operations. The increasing demand for fast and efficient material movements has required the creation of new and unique conveyor belt configurations.
There are several devices that can be installed in conveyor belt systems that dissipate and eliminate static loads. In 1892, Thomas Robins initiated a series of inventions that led to the development of a conveyor belt used to transport coal, minerals and other products. The conveyor belt was manufactured in lengths of 300 meters (980 ft) on the Indian side and 300 meters (980 ft) on the Bangladesh side. There is a sufficient amount of friction between the belt and the rotor for the belt to adhere to the rotor.
Conveyor belts move large quantities of products quickly and reliably for transport, subsequent assembly or storage. An indexing conveyor belt moves a product a certain distance step by step using accessories to hold the product in place. SEMCOR has been distributing high-quality industrial products, including conveyor belts, since 1907.The position and location of the rollers reduce the amount of energy required by the motor to move the conveyor belt. Nowadays there are different types of conveyor belts that have been created to transport different types of materials available in PVC and rubber materials.
However, the design and composition of each belt determine what product, weight, speed and industry the belt is most suitable for. The efficiency of conveyor belt systems helps improve productivity, saves labor costs and reduces delivery times. The varieties of conveyor belts used in automated assembly lines include chains, sliding, hinged, plastic belts and pallets. Thanks to their speed, efficiency and ease of use, conveyor belts have revolutionized material production in all sectors.
The drive pulley drives the conveyor belt and has external bearings that are driven by a motor and a reducer.
