Belt Conveyors"Ultimate Guide to Belt Conveyors: Applications, Types, and Benefits"

  • Belt conveyors are the most adaptable and straightforward material handling systems. They use two or more pulleys to move an endless loop belt. 
  • The loop then transfers a product from Point A to Point B on the belt. We use either fabric or rubber belts. Belt conveyors are widely used in the manufacturing and distribution industries.
  • They are a material handling system that utilizes an endless loop belt driven by two or more pulleys to transport products from one point to another. 
  • The belt, typically made from fabric or rubber, moves items along the conveyor line, allowing for efficient transportation within manufacturing and distribution facilities.
  • Belt conveyor systems are known for their versatility and simplicity, making them a popular choice for various industries.
  • ENTRA creates conveyors ranging from 5′ to 102′ in length and width (6″ wide belts to 72″ wide belts and more). 
  • These conveyors are ideal for transporting both regular and irregular-shaped objects. Totes, packaged goods, and bulk boxes are among the most common items transported on these conveyors.
  • Motorized belt conveyors are easy to install because of their simple design and construction. ENTRA can help you choose from the available models. There are both heavy-duty and light-duty models available. 
  • The possibilities are endless, but the majority are quite simple.
