Conveyor – what is industrial conveyor belt?

Conveyor belt is simply understood as a machine system mechanical to transport objects from one point to another, from A to B. Compared to the worker having to spend a lot of time and effort, it is easy to happen. If there is a risk in the transportation process, the conveyor can solve that problem much better, bringing high productivity through saving labor and the number of workers, and the time is also significantly shortened.

For that reason, conveyor belts play an important role in the factories and assembly lines of enterprises. Contributing to the development of an advanced scientific and technological production environment, bringing high economic efficiency to the company.

2/ Design standards for conveyor belts

Roller Conveyor Standard

 Design standards for conveyor belts - types of conveyor belts
Design standards for conveyor belts – types of conveyor belts

Roller conveyors meeting international standards must be designed to ensure the following standards:

The rollers in the roller conveyor system must be machined with high precision. The commonly used roller is a plastic roller, designed with high-grade bearing steel, covered with plastic outside, the plastic layer must reach the standard thickness, the surface is smooth and smooth. There are also steel rollers, stainless steel rollers, rubber rollers… all must ensure the level of bearing, durability, surface smoothness, the rollers in the system must be uniform. The rollers must be of international standard size and thickness.

Conveyor frames can be made from different materials such as powder coated steel, profiled aluminum or plastic coated steel, but in general, they must ensure strength, good load capacity, durability and flexibility. like being able to move, lift…

In addition, roller conveyors must also meet safety standards such as deceleration systems, warning lights, emergency stop systems, etc.

PVC Conveyor Standards

The frame system of PVC conveyor belt is similar to roller conveyor, made from diverse materials, flexible design, can be curved angle conveyor, inclined conveyor … depending on the needs of use. They must meet the criteria of bearing capacity and durability, comply with the size and technical requirements according to international standards.

The surface of PVC conveyor belt is made of PVC material, ensuring moisture resistance, light chemical resistance, can withstand temperatures from -10 to 110 degrees Celsius. The surface can be smooth, ribbed. or rough depending on product characteristics, the most common thickness is 1-5 mm, various and flexible sizes.

Conveyor belts must also ensure safety factors such as mounting speed reducers, incident lights, sensors, etc.

3/ What is a conveyor belt in English, professional terms often used with types of conveyor belts

4/ Common types of industrial conveyors (types of conveyor belts)

In each industry, different types of conveyors are used for different products and are tailored to the needs of each plant. We can distinguish some common types of conveyors based on the conveyor belt:

Roller Conveyor

As the name suggests, a roller conveyor is a system made up of rollers arranged into a solid conveying system, to support and transport goods in modern industrial manufacturing industries. This system can be used for light to very heavy weight products. At the same time, it also works very well in dusty environments or with corrosive chemicals.

Standard PVC Conveyors

PVC conveyor belt is the standard type of conveyor belt, with PVC layers interspersed with bearing layers, increasing the product carrying capacity of the surface. The production of PVC conveyor belts with smooth surfaces can be widely used in industries such as packaging, freight, product crates and food processing.

PU . Conveyor Belt

Conveyor belts made from PU (Polyurethane) plastic have the characteristics of plasticity, high temperature resistance, better wear resistance than conventional plastic and rubber, and a longer service life. There are many preeminent features of PU conveyor belts, such as good antistatic ability, small belt expansion coefficient, moisture, acid resistance and high strength, making them suitable for a wide range of industries such as food, pharmaceuticals, garments, confectionery, electronic assembly lines and leather shoes.

Sanding Conveyor

This conveyor is also made of PVC material, but it has a rougher surface to reduce standard friction, and its roughness is visible to the naked eye.

Ribbed PVC Conveyor Belt

Ribbed PVC conveyor belts are also manufactured from PVC material, which is used in cases where products are transported on conveyor belts with steep slopes, or where there is a risk of slippage making the product easy to fall.

Conveyor belts come in a variety of designs, as well as very flexible designs, making production easy and making the most of factory space, increasing labor productivity.

Mini PVC Conveyor

Mini PVC conveyor belts, like PVC conveyor belts, are much smaller and lighter in size, designed to allow flexible disassembly, and can be used in the manufacture of small items, or for many purposes. other.

Straight Line Conveyor

This is the most basic design, used to transport goods in a straight line using PVC or roller conveyor belts. It is applied in many fields of production, saving time and effort in transporting goods.

Curved Conveyor

Conveyor belts curved 30 degrees, 45, 90 or even 180 degrees help the factory space become the most perfect use. This type of conveyor is usually made of PVC material, bearing, heat-resistant, moisture-proof, so it is applied in the industries of food processing, packaging, printing, pharmaceuticals, electronics…

Inclined conveyor

Inclined conveyors are designed with a suitable slope. Depending on the type of production, they are assembled for locations where goods need to be transported up or down. Properly aligned inclination of the conveyor provides a more stable and continuous production line. The inclination does not affect the transportation of products and goods, so they are still safe to use. To prevent product from falling off the runway, inclined conveyors typically use ledges, baffles, rough or ribbed conveyors, as well as additional speed bumps.

Lifting Conveyor

The lifting conveyor is designed with flexible height adjustment feet to make the conveyor have a certain slope. It actively supports in cases of transporting goods uphill, transferring goods from the ground to the shelf, transporting conveyor belts from warehouse to container, etc.

It can be seen that the types of conveyor belts are very diverse from materials to designs and designs. It is now an integral part of modern production lines.
