Mechanical conveyor belt

Mechanical conveyor belt

In industrial production, mechanical conveyor belts play an important role. As a continuous conveying equipment, it is widely used in various production lines, from food processing to automobile manufacturing, all without its presence. This article will explore the types, structures, characteristics, and application scenarios of mechanical conveyor belts to help everyone better understand this important industrial equipment.

Mechanical conveyor belts are generally used in various conventional production lines, such as food processing, beverage packaging, etc; Mechanical conveyor belts for special purposes are designed for specific industries and processes, such as automotive manufacturing, aerospace, etc.

The mechanical conveyor belt mainly consists of the following parts:

1. Transmission shaft: It is the power source of the conveyor belt, driven by an electric motor or other power device.

2. Drive wheel: connected to the transmission shaft and responsible for transmitting power.

3. Driven wheel: Rotate in the opposite direction to the driving wheel to change the running direction of the conveyor belt.

4. Conveyor belt: It is the main body that carries materials, and can be divided into three types according to different materials and structures: belt type, plate type, and mesh type.

5. Deviation correction device: used to correct the deviation of the conveyor belt and ensure its normal operation.

6. Support frame: used to support conveyor belts and materials, ensuring their stable operation.

7. Cleaning device: used to remove impurities and material residues from the conveyor belt and maintain its cleanliness.

Mechanical conveyor belts have the following characteristics:

1. Continuity: The mechanical conveyor belt can operate continuously to achieve continuous material transportation.

2. High efficiency: Compared to manual handling, mechanical conveyor belts have higher conveying efficiency.

3. Automation: The operation of mechanical conveyor belts can be automated through control systems, reducing human intervention.

4. Reliability: The mechanical conveyor belt has a simple structure, convenient maintenance, and high reliability.

5. Speed regulation: Electric conveyor belts can adjust their speed through speed regulation devices to meet the needs of different production processes.

6. Customizability: The structure of mechanical conveyor belts can be customized according to the needs of different production lines to meet various special needs.

In the field of aerospace, mechanical conveyor belts are used to transport materials such as components and tools, providing support for the assembly and maintenance of aircraft or rockets. Due to the unique nature of the aerospace industry, there are extremely high requirements for the reliability, stability, and precision control of mechanical conveyor belts.

LTZC Bearings mainly used in Agricultural machinery

The Triple-row Roller Slewing Bearing has three seating rings, which separate the upper, lower and radial raceways. It can specify the loads of each row of rollers. Moreover, its load carrying capacity and it can bear different loads simultaneously.

Double-row ball slewing ring with same diameter balls is usually used for wind driven generators and concrete pump trucks. In wind driven generator applications, double-row ball slewing ring is often installed at the bottom of propellers for variable pitch control which requires zero clearance, large start friction moment and high running accuracy.

Four-point contact ball bearing is comprised of an outer ring and an inner ring in integral structure or split structure. The two split rings of bearings in split structure are bolted together before delivery. Usually cages or spacers can be found in four-point contact ball bearings.

Characteristics of mechanical conveyor belt bearings

Mechanical conveyor belt is a device widely used in various industrial fields, which can transport materials from one place to another. And bearings are one of the very important components in mechanical conveyor belts, and their characteristics directly affect the performance and service life of mechanical conveyor belts. This article will provide a detailed introduction to the characteristics of mechanical conveyor belt bearings.

1、 Supporting and fixed loads

Mechanical conveyor belt bearings usually use rolling bearings, which have high stiffness and accuracy and can accurately support and fix loads. Rolling bearings are composed of inner rings, outer rings, rolling elements, and cages, among which the inner and outer rings are the main components that support and fix the load. The rolling element plays a role in transmitting load in rolling bearings, while the cage is used to maintain the position and motion trajectory of the rolling element.

2、 Low friction coefficient

Mechanical conveyor belt bearings need to have a low coefficient of friction to ensure that the conveyor belt can run smoothly and smoothly during operation. The contact area between the rolling element of rolling bearings and the inner and outer rings is relatively small, so its friction coefficient is also relatively low, which helps to improve the transmission efficiency and service life of mechanical conveyor belts.

3、 High temperature and corrosion resistance

Mechanical conveyor belts generate a large amount of heat during operation and are also exposed to various chemicals. Therefore, bearings need to have high temperature and corrosion resistance characteristics. Some high-performance mechanical conveyor belt bearings use special materials and processing techniques to enhance their high-temperature and corrosion resistance, such as stainless steel bearings, high-temperature ceramic bearings, etc.

4、 High precision and stiffness

Mechanical conveyor belt bearings need to have high precision and stiffness to ensure smooth operation and precise control of the conveyor belt. Some high-performance mechanical conveyor belt bearings adopt advanced processing equipment and processes to achieve high-precision manufacturing and assembly, such as CNC machine tool processing, heat treatment, etc. These measures help to improve the accuracy and stiffness of bearings, thereby ensuring the smooth operation and precise control of mechanical conveyor belts.

5、 Easy maintenance

Mechanical conveyor belt bearings require convenient maintenance and upkeep to ensure their normal operation and lifespan. Some mechanical conveyor belt bearings adopt a separable design for easy replacement and maintenance; At the same time, some high-performance mechanical conveyor belt bearings also adopt special sealing technology to prevent impurities such as dust and moisture from entering the interior of the bearings, thereby ensuring their normal operation and service life.

In short, mechanical conveyor belt bearings are one of the very important components in mechanical conveyor belts, and their characteristics directly affect the performance and service life of mechanical conveyor belts. When selecting and using mechanical conveyor belt bearings, it is necessary to choose them based on actual application scenarios and needs, and pay attention to their characteristics such as support and fixed loads, low friction coefficient, high temperature and corrosion resistance, high accuracy and stiffness, and convenient maintenance.
