A belt conveyor, also called a conveyor belt, is mainly used to automatically move a product from A to B. A conveyor belt is also used to transport products along employees, robots, production machines or other packaging machines.
Types of conveyor belts
A different type of conveyor belt is required for each product or environment. BCK Holland supplies all kinds of tailor-made belt conveyors. See below for some of our products:
If there is no wet surroundings or there is no stainless steel required, an aluminium conveyor can be applied. The BCK aluminium belt conveyors are available in the type N60 and N114.
A stainless steel belt conveyor is often used in wet surroundings and / or stainless steel products are required. The BCK stainless steel belt conveyors are manufactured of AISI 304 or AISI 316.
The mini-conveyor is a new product within BCK Holland. The mini-conveyor belt makes the range of BCK conveyors more complete. These mini-conveyors, of the brand Vetter Kleinförderbänder, are mainly used where space is limited and the product is small and light.
Construction of a conveyor belt
The construction of a belt conveyor is quite simple. A conveyor belt consists of a frame, two rounded end rollers, an endless belt material and a drive. In addition to this basis, there are countless details and options that make the belt conveyor specific for a particular application. In most cases, the conveyor belt is driven by an electric motor with a gearbox. With the help of this drive, and any control, you can therefore also determine the speed of the conveyor.
The environmental factors and the product determine the type of conveyor belt. If the environment is dry and a non-food product is being transported, an aluminum conveyor belt is used. A stainless steel conveyor belt is used in humid conditions and the transport of food products.
Partly due to all these factors, no conveyor belt is the same. For example, you can choose a small conveyor belt but also a different type of transport system, such as chain conveyors or roller conveyors.
