Flat Belt Conveyors

Flat belt conveyors are used across the manufacturing industry and play an integral role in productivity and efficiency. Flat belt conveyors are generally friction-driven; the friction between the flexible flat belt and the drive wheel keeps it moving.

Flat belt conveyors are generally best used for light and medium loads, but there are some options available for heavy-duty loads as well, depending on needs and requirements. Simple in design and construction, flat belt conveyors can accomplish a lot and are seamlessly integrated across operations, making them an excellent option in manufacturing.
