Aug 05, 2018

The guide strips are used in conveyor belt applications, and some are applied to the surface as a pattern or fixed material, and some are added to the back to prevent the conveyor belt from running off.



Conveyor belts, guide bars.


So what is the guide?


As the name implies, the strip with positioning and guiding function is to make the conveyor belt run accurately on the conveyor, prevent deviation, and can also be used as the material positioning of the conveyor belt bearing surface. The color of the guide bar is green (common) and white, etc. The materials used for the manufacture are mainly PVC, PU, PE, etc., so as to meet the quality requirements of different grades in the general industrial and food packaging industries.


The common specifications of the guide bar are: 6*4, 10*6, 13*8, 17*11 (unit mm), and the cross section is an isosceles trapezoid. The meaning of the specification is 6*4, which means 6mm wide. 4mm thick.


Conveyor belt plus guide bar


There are two main functions of the guide bar. One is to prevent the conveyor belt from running off during operation, and the other is to use the bearing surface as a positioning.


When the guide bar is added to the contact surface of the conveyor belt, the effect is to make the conveyor belt run accurately and prevent it from running away after long-term operation, thereby protecting the long-term use of the conveyor belt.


When the guide bar is applied to the carrying surface of the conveyor belt, it is mainly to prevent the material from rolling. Such conveyor belts are mainly used in some food processing, such as egg conveyor belts.
