Sep 16, 2018

Lightweight conveyor belts for a variety of industries, including food processing, electronic suede, precision machinery design, postal savings, printing, woodworking, tobacco, and logistics.


First, the material

Lightweight conveyor belts are generally made of PVC, PU, silica gel, Teflon, etc. The material itself is non-toxic and tasteless and can be in direct contact with the conveyed material. To enhance certain properties, a recipe is changed.

Heavy-duty conveyor belt, made of rubber, with large odor, easy to produce toxic gas, suitable for conveying ore, sand and so on.


Second, the pattern

Light conveyor belts, there are many types of patterns, such as grass, diamond, one-line, cloth, checkered, etc., depending on the transport environment, choose different patterns.

The heavy-duty belt pattern is relatively small, mainly in herringbone pattern, grass pattern and plane, suitable for harsh environments such as mountain blasting.


Third, the thickness

Lightweight conveyor belts come in a variety of thicknesses, from the thinnest 0.1mm to the thickest 10mm, depending on the size of the conveyor roller.

Heavy-duty conveyor belts are generally thick and heavy with a thickness of 7mm or more.

Fourth, the use of the environment

The light conveyor belt is suitable for indoor use and is suitable for use in room temperature environment. According to the different conveying temperature, the formula can be changed to produce cold-resistant conveyor belt or high-temperature conveyor belt.

The rubber belt is stable in formulation and is generally used for outdoor transportation to adapt to harsh environments.

 Fives. Processing technology

Light conveyor belt, according to the drawings, processing baffles, guide bars, skirts, edge seals, etc., all sizes can be customized
