Belt conveyor

Belt conveyors belong to the category of continuous conveyors and transport goods from A to B fully automatically. The material to be conveyed is transported via belts, which is where the name belt conveyor or often also belt conveyor comes from. This type of conveyor system is used for the continuous or intermittent transport of a mass flow between different stations. They are particularly suitable for the transport of very small goods such as piece goods or bulk goods, as a full-surface transport support is available here.

As a competent manufacturer TEGEL-TECHNIK offers a wide range of conveyor systems, because individual applications and special transport goods require a tailor-made solution. For belt conveyors rubberised fabric belts are particularly common. These can also be found in the family of chain conveyors for example. at module belt conveyors, apron conveyors or slat-band chain conveyors.. A selection of our realised projects can be found here

Advantages of belt conveyors from TEGEL-TECHNIK

  • Wide range of applications: Our belt conveyors are suitable for complex transport tasks, because they cover large lengths and quantities as well as different speeds, of the goods to be transported.

  • Individuality and flexibility: We adapt the belt conveyors flexibly to your needs and circumstances. Whether confined spaces or inclines and declines within the conveyor line, we design the optimal solution for you. Mobile belt conveyors are also part of our repertoire. 

  • Robust and reliable: Our components are characterised by high-quality materials and careful workmanship. We supply robust and durable designs with powerful drives.

  • Efficiency and economy: Our belt conveyors are low-maintenance and low-wear and guarantee fast, gentle and quiet transport in your operation.

  • Everything from a single source: We offer a high vertical range of manufacture with an extensive spectrum of services. In doing so, we as a company in the field of materials handling draw on our valuable experience since 1982.

Design and functionality of belt conveyors

Belt conveyors essentially consist of a supporting structure, a drive and return station and the conveyor belt. The design varies, depending on the material to be conveyed, in single or double belt conveyors. Due to the simple construction of conveyor belts, they are very robust and require little maintenance. The drive of the conveyor belt takes place via a direct drive as head or centre drive with attachment on the side of the conveyor belt. If space is limited, the drive can also be placed under the conveyor belt and connected to the drive drum via a roller chain. Slopes and inclines within the conveyor line can also be overcome by belt conveyors .

The choice of conveyor belt depends on the specific application and the nature of the goods to be transported. Conveyor belts with a smooth surface are used for horizontal transport, among other things, while belts with a structured surface, running side guides or with webs are used for inclines. Abrasion-resistant belt conveyors are particularly useful for sharp-edged parts in industry.

Belt conveyors in use

At TEGEL-TECHNIK we design conveyor technology for different industries and purposes. We find the right solution for your needs, from planning to installation. Belt conveyors are preferably used to overcome inclines, declines and curves. They enable fast, gentle and quiet transport and removal.

Conveyors with conveyor belt transport goods with different weights, dimensions, shapes or uneven supporting surfaces. Our customers' applications include conveying cardboard boxes, dishwasher baskets, small electrical machines, foam sheets, plastic parts, injection-moulded plastic parts, punched sheet metal parts, waste, polystyrene bases and blocks or small parts. Depending on the requirements of the goods to be conveyed, various profiles can be applied to the conveyor belts of the conveyor belts, for example gentle rubber cleats, cross cleats or corrugated edges, to make the system as efficient as possible.

For our customers we have used, among other things, a belt conveyor as an ascending belt, to enable the transport of plastic crates to a higher level. For sharp-edged, hot or wear-critical conveyed goods, on the other hand, we use hinged belt conveyors made of steel, as they are particularly robust and hard-wearing.
