Due to their positive drives, modular belt conveyors can sustain high loads even with small belt widths. Besides, the lateral guide of the belt resists the lateral forces, as a result of which workpieces can also be pushed off transversely. Another advantage is that fluids from the transported material can drip off through the chain and the modular belt conveyor can be cleaned easily and quickly.
The existing portfolio of straight and incline (vertical) modular belt conveyors will now be supplemented by curved sections. These are based on the same system and are available with different route layouts and curve angles. Using individual variations, the route layout can be tailored to the existing conditions. In addition to this, various band widths ranging from 164 to 1005mm have a good ratio of effective width to the overall width and can also be used in cramped spaces. Due to the modular design and the combination of straight sections and inclines, practically any route can be implemented in three-dimensional space.
