What is best for your products
It can be a bit of a minefield trying to access genuine information about material handling machinery so we offer our years of expertise to try and alleviate the confusion around conveying.
In short the material used to manufactured the main structure can be either stainless steel, mild steel or aluminum the choice is usually made by the industry sector or product being transported.
Stainless tend to be the food and pharmaceutical industries whilst mild steel a more robust industrial type environment. Aluminium is a lower cost option but does not have the robust structure that the other two material have.
We then move onto the type of flat belting again this is dependant on your product and industry. There are too many but the most common types are
PU/PVC : RUBBER : THERMO PLASTIC : SILICONE : POLYESTER : PTPA
These types of belting can be used on inclines by attaching flights along the length which will stop product fall back.
We then move onto different belt options which include modular belting which is a bit like plastic lego pieces all slotting together great for the food industry and easy to repair small defective sections.
Another type is slat band which is plastic slats great for achieving tight bends.
Wire belt tend to be used in the bakery sector including industries that use oven within the process.
And the most common roller conveying which can be gravity or manually fed which is the cheapest option or it can be powered in line shaft or chain.
