The inclined, L-type and Z-type elevating conveyors ensure the transport of products between different machine levels (height difference between levels from 0.5m to 6m). The supporting element is a modular belt, PVC belt, PU belt or a homogeneous toothed PU Volta belt (Pasitive Drive SD, DD, DDSP). The working width of the belts strictly depends on the transported product, the assumed conveyor capacity and the application type. It usually ranges from 300mm to 1400mm.
Conveyor belts are usually equipped with additional elements such as:
side constraints (height from 20mm to 100mm),
trucks (height from 10mm to 150mm),
guide wedges K8, K10, K13, K17.
These accessories prevent the product from falling through and ensure that it is lifted together with the belt, thus ensuring the appropriate transport capacity of up to several tons per hour. Conveyors’ construction is made of metal sheets and structural profiles connected by welding or screwing, then it undergoes silde process. Depending on the requirements, the conveyors may have covering systems, drip trays, hoppers and receiving trays. Electrical equipment and drives used according to customer requirements:
control boxes with speed control,
gearmotors with a higher IP degree, covered with epoxy paint or stainless steel.
The base for conveyors is usually made up of levelling construction feet and, in addition, rollers enabling easy movement of the device. The conveyors are accompanied by the necessary technical documentation required by the regulations and the manufacturer’s declaration.
