what's the difference of drive belt and the conveyor belt?

Apr 20, 2019

The transmission belt is the power generated by rotating the motor or engine of the prime mover, and is transmitted to the mechanical equipment through the belt by the pulley, so it is also called the power belt. It is the core component of electromechanical equipment, with a wide variety of applications and a wide range of uses. Giant motors ranging from large to several thousand kilowatts, small to less than one kilowatt of micro-motors, and even precision machinery including home appliances, computers, robots, etc. are inseparable from the transmission belt. Its biggest feature is that it can be freely variable speed, far and near transmission, simple structure and convenient replacement. Therefore, from the original machinery to the modern automatic equipment, there are transmission belts. The products have undergone many evolutions and the technology has matured.

Secondly, let's talk about conveyor belts.

A conveyor belt is a belt medium that transports materials from one place to another. The drive belt is the medium that drives the transmission wheel to rotate. The effect is different.

Conveyor belts, also known as conveyor belts, are rubber and fiber, metal composite products used in belt conveyor belts to carry and transport materials, or composite products of plastics and fabrics. Conveyor belts are widely used in cement, coking, metallurgy, chemical, steel and other industries where the conveying distance is short and the conveying volume is small. Belt conveyors are widely used in agriculture, industrial and mining enterprises and transportation industries to transport a variety of solid block and powder materials or articles, conveyor belts can be continuous, high efficiency, large angle of transport, conveyor belt operation safety, The conveyor belt is easy to use, easy to maintain, low in freight, and can shorten the transportation distance, reduce the construction cost, and save manpower and material resources.
