Belt or conveyor belt

The belt is considered the most important element of the entire conveyor, since it is in charge of moving the materials from one determined point to another. Its structure is made up of a frame made of different fabrics that are superimposed to form a cover.

roller station

These are the components responsible for supporting the weight to which the belt is subjected. In turn, it is worth mentioning that they are positioned on the bearings in order to facilitate the movement of the belt itself.


It is a series of cylindrical pieces that, when placed consecutively, manage to form a conveyor belt that will have the function of loading and moving merchandise. This is possible thanks to the fact that the rollers are arranged to rotate on their own axis in order to generate that mechanical movement capable of transferring the load of the belt.

Transmission system

This system is made up of a series of internal elements, these being the drums, rollers and the motor.

forwarding drum

Its main function is to allow the return of the conveyor belt to the other end of the belt.
