Steel Belt and Conveyor

Nihao, here’s Rhyce again, from Shanghai. This week let’s talk about conveyor which is widely applied in the industry. If someone mentions ‘belt’, the word ‘conveyor’ might pop up instantly if you are familiar with engineering.

A belt conveyor consists of two or more pulleys, with an endless loop of material, conveyor belt, rotating about them. One or both of the pulleys are powered, moving the belt and the material on the belt forward. The powered pulley is called the drive pulley while the unpowered pulley is called the idler.
Conveyors are used as components in automated distribution and it is considered a labor saving system with less labor expense. Belt conveyors are the most commonly used powered conveyors because they are the most versatile and the least expensive. Product is conveyed directly on the belt so both regular and irregular shaped objects, large or small, light and heavy, can be transported successfully. These conveyors should use only the highest quality premium belting products, which reduces belt stretch and results in less maintenance for tension adjustments.

Dymco has established its great advantage in steel belt and belt conveyor for several decades. In China, considered as the best, Dymco products - including belts and conveyors - are applied widely in different industries, such as granulating machine, heat sealing machine, beverage filling machine, etc.
