The Conveyor Belt: The Allrounder Across Industries and Applications

The conveyor belt is used in a wide range of industries for the efficient transport of goods and materials. Whether over a few feet or many miles, steep inclines or gradual declines, conveyor belts are used to solve a variety of logistical challenges. Conveyor belts are used to transport raw materials such as limestone from the quarry over great distances to a cement plant. In distribution centres, conveyor belts ensure the automated sorting of shipments. Baggage handling at airports also runs on conveyor belts, and even at the supermarket checkout we pack our groceries onto a conveyor belt.

Heavy duty applications for conveyor belts

Whether a simple flat belt, troughed or closed pipe – we have the right belt for your industry.

Long distances for both raw and processed materials

Conveyor belts are the first choice for moving both raw materials and processed materials quickly, often covering great distances and rough terrain in the process. Their robust design ensures that the conveyor system is economical compared to alternative solutions. They also typically expend less energy and less CO2, in addition to lower levels of noise pollution. In short, whether you are transporting sand, coal or metals: conveyor belts are increasingly a more popular and sustainable choice compared to rail and road transportation.

Conveyor belts for power plants

Conveyor belts are necessary for fuelling power plants with alternative sources of energy. The conveyor belts specially designed for this application are optimised for the various combustion processes and thus achieve the best results. Durable components that have been rigorously tested form the basis for a reliable and low-maintenance system.

Heavy-duty: Conveyor belts for hazardous materials

In logistics for the chemical industry, special attention is paid to the conveying of hazardous materials. Innovative systems enable the safe transport of sensitive compounds, containers stacked high, heavy payloads and materials at very high temperatures. This belt construction is resistant to abrasion and uses an energy-saving drive technology that enables smooth starting, stopping and transport throughout.

The steel apron conveyors for hot commodities

In cement manufacturing and other industrial applications, the transported material sometimes reaches extremely hot temperatures, as high as 500 to 800 degrees celsius. Apron conveyors with steel cells are built with high abrasion resistance. They are mounted on reinforced steel belts to provide extra strength, the type of belt commonly used in bucket elevator technology.

  • Troughed Belt Conveyor

    Overland Belt Conveyors

    Open troughed belt conveyors are suitable for conveying any type of material that must be transported across vast distances through rough terrain.
  • Troughed Belt Conveyors

    Open troughed belt conveyors transport bulk goods for cement manufacture quickly across large distances and rough terrain.
  • Pipe Conveyors

    A pipe conveyor is recommended for sensitive products such as granulate or raw materials, which have to be protected from the elements.
  • Conveyor for Alternative Fuels

    Alternative Fuel Conveyor

    Our conveyor systems enable these alternative materials to be stored, separated, weighed, sorted and transported efficiently and eco-friendly.

Conveyor Belts in Logistics Centres

Conveyor belts are not only common in heavy industry, their are also found in fulfillment centres, warehouses, airports, and anywhere else things need to get from point A to point B. Whichever industry you are in, we have the right solution for you.

Modular Belts: Conveyor systems for parcel sortation and dispatch

In the automated handling of parcels in distribution centres, a frictionless flow of parcels is particularly important. The fast unloading of bulk deliveries, reliable singulation, automated sortation and the efficient loading of the consignments are the many challenges which conveyor belts have to meet. For one particular challenge, we developed the BG Line Sorter, a conveyor with cross belt technology and tilting trays. Thanks to the modular design, we give you the option of adapting the systems to your changing needs, your system grows and your business grows. Of course, the robust, low-maintenance design meets BEUMER’s high quality standards. The power-saving drive of the conveyor belts underscores our commitment to sustainability. For optimising the flow of parcels in warehouses and dispatch centres, our innovative systems can also be custom made to fit your needs.

Baggage handling at the airport

In air travel, luggage travels as far as the passenger, but often takes a very different path. From check in to being retrieved at the carousel, luggage passes through a number of checkpoints. Conveyor belts ensure in this case as well, that suitcases and bags are transported quickly and reliably. The check-in conveyor forms the beginning of the automated conveyor circuit in the airport. Whether you want to offer assisted or self bag drop, we offer those options and more from temporary storage of early baggage to loading and unloading of airplanes to carousels, we have the entire baggage journey covered.

Construction: conveyor belts built to last

The belting of our conveyor belts can be made with a number of fabrics and materials: nylon, PVC, polyester and rubber are all common belt materials, specialty compounds such as NBR (nitrile butadiene rubber) which is particularly resistant to abrasions and tearing, are also a possibility. Other features such as cleats or v-guides can be integrated into your design as well. Our customers tend to favour endless conveyor splicing as belt lacing requires frequent scheduled maintenance. High strength, low noise – whatever your requirements, we are happy to develop a custom conveyor to fit your needs.
