The belt conveyor is a continuous conveying machine. It is a continuous conveying device that uses a conveyor belt as a traction component and a load bearing component, uses a support roller, and transmits traction by relying on the friction between the driving roller and the conveyor belt. Material is transported from the loading and unloading site to the loading and unloading site in a continuous logistics manner through a certain conveyor line.
Not only plays an important role in the internal transportation of industrial enterprises, but also plays an important role in external communication. Due to low investment, low operating costs, long distances for material transportation, etc., it can replace railway transportation and road transportation in some occasions. It has become an indispensable transportation equipment in the production of industrial enterprises.
In the past 20 years, due to the incomparable advantages of belt conveyors compared to other conveyor machinery, China's belt conveyors have developed rapidly. The more prominent features are the large capacity of application belt conveyors, large single machine lengths, and motors. High power, greatly improve the level of starting and braking technology.
Due to the low operating cost of the belt conveyor, especially under the current situation of tight fuel supply, heavy dependence on imports, and high oil prices, the belt conveyor has a wider range of applications. Its advantages are mainly reflected in: simple structure, energy saving, economy, Wide conveying range, long conveying distance, large conveying capacity, high production efficiency, flexible line layout, strong adaptability, large lifting angle, and flexible loading and unloading.
