Steel Belt Conveyors
Steel belt conveyors are the most versatile type of conveyor available. These belts can be used to handle nearly every kind of part and all types of scrap. They are durable and built to withstand harsh industrial environments. Most applications requiring steel belts involve handling metal or metal scrap, and often require the material to drop with a significant impact that other conveyors could not withstand. Two and one half pitch models handle most applications. Often, four and six inch pitch steel belts are needed for larger scrap, castings, forgings and any applications with heavy loads or long runs.
Other common names for these types of conveyors are Piano Hinge Conveyors, Hinged Belt Conveyors and Chip Conveyors. Common uses for steel hinge conveyors include stampings, forgings, fasteners, die casting, recycling and scrap metal, as well as the removal of all types of metal chips. Steel hinge conveyors can also be used in quench conveyors. Often, four and six inch pitch steel belt conveyors are needed for larger scrap, castings, forgings, baler infeed’s and any applications with heavy loads or long runs.
