Conveyor systems are designed to move materials from one area to another safely and effectively. There are many different types of conveyor available to you, with different conveyors serving different purposes. The industry that you operate in is likely to determine the type of conveyor that is right for you. Some examples of popular conveyor systems include the belt conveyor, slat conveyor, heavy duty pallet conveyor, chain conveyor, spiral conveyor and food handling conveyor. There are many other products that you might be interested in, such as a modular conveyor, rotary tables, incline conveyor, flexible conveyor, portable conveyors, and an overhead conveyor.
The foundations for modern conveyor systems were first laid down in 1892 when Thomas Robins started work on a number of inventions for carrying products like coal. The first steel conveyor belts were introduced by Sandvik in 1901, and an innovative Turnover Conveyor Belt System was invented and patented in 1957 by the B.F. Goodrich Company.
Conveyors can be made from many different materials, and belts often have three layers. steel conveyor belts are often chosen when a high strength class is needed. Cotton, nylon and polyester being commonly selected for low strength classes. Many belts are made from PVC and rubber materials.
Conveyors and their benefits
A conveyor system is an essential component in any manufacturing plant. Conveyor systems allow for automatised and efficient movement of materials and products, which otherwise would have to be conveyed by hand or by medium duty elements that can only work when handled by a human (e.g. fork lifts).
When a conveyor system is installed, accidents decrease, as it is less likely that workers get injured by moving products or heavy loads; consequently, product breaks and damage are also fewer; and, in general, plants become more productive, as fewer workers are required to carry out the same action.
The same goes for old conveyor systems that are modernised or replaced by new ones. Using motors and active elements with a higher energetic efficiency, adapting the speeds and line capacities to the real flow of products, handling the product as gently as possible, adding elements that increase personal safety or others that permit to measure and control product flow in detail, all of them are possible measures to increase productivity and save energy in the facilities.
