Conveyors are mechanical devices used to transport materials from one point to another within a facility or between different locations. There are several types of conveyors, each designed for specific applications and industries.

Conveyors types


Belt Conveyors

Consist of a continuous belt that moves over a series of rollers or drums.

Used for transporting bulk materials, such as grains, coal, ore, and packaged goods.

Roller Conveyors

Utilize a series of rollers to move items along a path.

Often used for handling heavy loads or in applications where items need to accumulate.

Chain Conveyors

Feature a chain that runs along a set of sprockets to move materials.

Suitable for heavy-duty applications and the transportation of pallets.

Screw/Auger Conveyors

Consist of a rotating helical screw blade within a tube, used to move bulk materials horizontally or at a slight incline.

Commonly used in agriculture, construction, and industrial settings.


Bucket Elevators

Employ buckets attached to a rotating chain or belt to elevate materials vertically.

Commonly used for lifting bulk materials, such as grains or aggregates.

Vibrating Conveyors

Use vibratory motion to move materials along a trough.

Suitable for applications where gentle conveying or handling of fragile materials is required.
