Depending on the nature of the application, manufacturers can offer you roller belts in a variety of lengths, thicknesses and widths. Belts are most often made using a rubber-like material, such as urethane. They can also be made from metal materials like steel. Roller belts are typically motorized. Powered roller belts usually have one motorized roller that is connected to six or seven non-motorized rollers. Rollers may feature grooves or tapers to assist in the conveying process. Tapered rollers, for example, can assist when your system rounds corners.
Many specifics of your application impact your roller belt design. These include: system length (short, long, across a building, etc.), the weight of the loads it will carry, the projected amount of generated friction and its integration into other systems (or lack thereof). The roller belt must be strong enough to not only hold the weight of your loads, but also hold them up so they do not stall out the system. To find out what options are best for you, consult with an experienced belt supplier, such as those listed on this page.
