Theft in Manufacturing: Conveyor Belts

Thefts happen all the time in factory and construction settings, often when objects and materials are stored outdoors in easy reach of passersby. Even though fences and other security methods are often employed, thieves still manage to find new ways to break in and steal manufacturing supplies. The reason that many thieves go after manufacturing supplies is because the materials hold their value well, are often expensive, and are easy to resell to other manufacturing plants around the world. Recently, in Greenville, South Carolina, one factory reported the theft of... Read More

5 Benefits of Round Belts

A round belt, endless belt, or o-ring belt all indicate the same kind of belt. These round belts are not like traditional conveyor belts, but rather are used in applications like lineshaft conveyors, and roller conveyors. The belts are narrow and rounded, and are often used more like flexible gears than traditional conveyor belts. The belts can keep rotating parts going steadily without problems for many hours before they break down. The use of round belts provide many benefits for factory use, including: Tension strength: The tension strength of these... Read More

The History of Conveyor Belts

Surprisingly enough, conveyor belts have been in use for hundreds of years. In fact, even as far back as 1795, conveyor belts were used to transport grain for short distances. However, the conveyor belt of the past was nothing like the modern conveyor of today. Ancient conveyors were much simpler, and could not perform like today's modern conveyors. Original conveyors had a flat wood surface with a leather, rubber, or canvas belt that traveled over the surface of the conveyor. The conveyors were powered by a series of pulleys and... Read More

Conveyor Belt Materials

Conveyor belt material vary with width. Sometimes these belts can be as narrow as just a few inches across. Narrow belts are highly useful in industrial factories and processes because they save space and are ideal for transporting smaller items from one place to another. Many factories that create small goods, like small food packages, small containers, or even small metal parts, use these small belts to control the movement of the goods from one place to another. The packaging department is one of the most common places to see... Read More

Conveyor Belt Materials

Conveyor belts are manufactured out of many different materials, all with differing specifications, properties and benefits. They are integral components of a conveyor system, and physically transport bulk materials from one place to another in a continuous motion. They must be durable, long lasting and resistant to a wide range of temperatures, moisture and chemicals.

There are five main materials that conveyor belts are made out of: thermoplastics, metal, rubber, fabric and leather. Plastics include polyester, polyvinyl chloride, silicone and polyethylene. The metals are stainless and carbon steel, and the fabric materials are canvas or cotton. The most popular material is a rubber composite because it is flexible, resistant, smooth and seamless. It also doesn't have any holes or openings. To increase strength, many belt materials contain additives, including fabric, steel, polyester or fiberglass. Many flat belts are actually composed of a core material and a covering. These belts are parts of many different types of conveyors, including troughed, inclined, horizontal, food grade and overhead conveyors, but they are not used in chain, pneumatic or screw conveyors. Choosing the right belting material is the most important specification involved with conveyor systems because the wrong material could compromise productivity or worker safety.

Conveyor systems, especially those in manufacturing facilities, travel through many different environments. For example, assembly line conveyors may travel through an oven, underwater parts washer or some sort of secondary operation like painting. Therefore, they must be resistant, durable and able to handle these harsh conditions on a continuous and regular basis. Belts that carry ingredients, raw materials and finished, unpackaged goods in food or beverage processing plants are made of either stainless steel or a heat resistant, non contaminating plastic resin. They must be FDA or USDA approved and easy to clean and sanitize. Materials like some hard plastics or metal lack the flexibility needed to convey, which requires the belt to bend, as they are on a continuous loop around two sets of rollers. In these situations, small parts are interlocked together or woven in order to bend and twist. However, these tend to have holes or cracks and are not smooth or water tight. They are not made for carrying small or irregularly shaped objects as well as products in bags, which could sag or fall through the cracks.
