The Parts of a Conveyor System
January 10, 2017

A complete conveyor system is composed of three main components. The parts include the aluminum profile, the driving unit, and the extremity unit. The aluminum profile contains the conveyor belt support. The driving unit is composed of namely the motor bracket, counter-bearings and the electrical drive. The extremity unit is made up of the pulley and clamping straps. The add-on modules are parts that may be optionally included such as the stands and the lateral guides.

Parts and Functions of Conveyor Systems

The conveyor belt support: this is a simplified component that assists the conveyor belt to swiftly draw itself. It also works as a firm support for the belt to ensure that it does not sag when the weight of an item is placed on the belt.

The pulley: The main function of the pulleys in the extremity unit is to control the movement of the belt. As such, the pulleys are strategically positioned to turn the belt around and cause it to return back, the empty belt is turned around ready for loading by the tail pulleys.

The driving unit: These mechanical units assist the conveyor system to run continuously, reverse, and adjust direction repeatedly. The counter bearing helps with efficient rotation between parts of the system. The driving unit is ideal in providing the required motion support for the belt to function effectively.
