We are a leading supplier for Belt Conveyors in the state of Wisconsin. We have decades of experience with the assessment, supply, and installation of Belt Conveyor systems. We have a wealth of experience with custom implementations in new environments as well as in the integration of new systems into existing production/transport environments.
An Belt Conveyor is a powered conveyor suspended above the ground used for transporting materials throughout a facility or facilities. Unlike, for example, a Roller Conveyor, which is intended to drive the load, a belt conveyor is intended to drive the BELT, which MOVES the load. This distinction means that the properties of the load have less impact on its movement.
Belt Conveyors are well-used in situations where space is an issue. They allow a production or transportation facility to utilize space that could otherwise go to waste in addition to being invaluable for transporting sensitive or irregular items.
Belt Conveyors, and Belt Conveyors in general, are great for moving irregular objects. An "irregular object" is anything that does not have a flat bottom and/or is not wide enough to stretch across rollers or skatewheels. Irregular items have a tendency to fall between rollers and skatewheels, slowing down entire production lines and even damaging products. Belt Conveyors also offer consistent speed; since they are not gravity-assisted, the properties of the objects being transported have no bearing on their movement, minimizing accidents.
Because Belt Conveyor systems are motorized, there are a variety of parts that may need to be replaced over time that would not be present in simpler conveyor systems such as Roller Conveyors.
