Belt conveyors are a convenient way to transport materials, offering a wide range of customizations to adapt to a variety of space constraints, products, materials, and needs. Whatever the needs of your material manufacturing or processing, a conveyor system can help increase productivity and efficiency while decreasing required manpower.
Most conveyor systems are built to frequently transport high volumes of material, meaning that they need to house a motor that is strong enough to move heavy weight, and all the pieces must be durable enough to withstand nearly constant friction.
Conveyors are used for material processing in a variety of industries, from recycling, composting and waste management to construction and demolition sites and manufacturing plants.
With these requirements, you might think that all conveyors must be large. However, there are a variety of small belt conveyor systems available that meet the same requirements that full-size conveyors do.
Uses for Small Belt Conveyor Systems
Mini belt conveyors are useful when transporting small or particularly delicate materials from one place to another. Even though they may not look it, they are capable of the same power as large belt conveyors, with increased precision and delicacy.
Because of their small size, in addition to their ability to move delicate materials, small conveyors are able to be easily maintained and sanitized.
This makes small belt conveyor systems useful in medical and research facilities to sort and transport pharmaceutical materials, glass parts, or surgical equipment.
These systems are also useful in construction and demolition facilities where fine materials like sand or dirt need to be moved.
Small belt conveyor systems are especially useful and smart to use in small spaces. Whether you have limited space in a warehouse or processing area, or you’re working in a small area like a basement, crawlspace, or pipe system, having a small belt conveyor can improve productivity without getting in the way.
