Industrial belt conveyors. Manufactured in the UK and supplying a wide range of light to heavy-duty models, as well as custom belt conveyors for specialist applications. Belt conveyors are ideal for the powered transport of both uniform and non-uniform loads.

These types of conveyors are ideal for use in packing and assembly lines. The belt allows for different sizes and weights of goods to be transported at the same time. For this reason, belt conveyors are ideal for e-commerce sites with varying products.

There are many types of belt conveyor, each can be designed to suit a specific process or environment.

Swan Neck & Inclined Belt Conveyors

For example, the Swan Neck belt conveyor can be used to transport products upwards, either to machinery, or between two floors, or even to a mezzanine.

Changing levels with the swan neck conveyor is easy, and belts can be modified with slats to stop some products rolling back. As with most of the belt conveyors, the body or chassis can be steel or stainless steel and the belts

The materials used for the belt conveyor are important. Belt conveyors for use in food production for example are made with stainless-steel frames, with a belt material suitable for wash down. The ability to keep the conveyor belt hygienic is of the utmost importance.

A plastic modular conveyor belt is made from an interlocking plastic mesh material. Unlike belts that rely on friction, the modular belt is positive-driven by engagement with a series of sprockets underneath the belt.

Modular belt conveyors are an extremely robust solution for most transport applications. The belts are hard wearing. With the correct specified material, they are widely used for transportation of sharp edged products, making them ideal for boning lines. The easy to clean design, is the ideal solution for direct food applications. Or areas where chemicals are used. Intentionally, they are ideal for conveyor belt solutions that require corners.
