The Application and Development of Conveyor Belt

Conveyor belt is the main part of belt conveyor. It is mainly used for large-scale continuous transportation in coal, mining, metallurgy, chemical, construction and transportation sectors. The materials to be transported are divided into blocks, powders, pastes and pieces. Items etc. The conveyor belt is mainly composed of three parts: framework material, covering layer and bottoming material, of which covering layer and framework layer are the key parts that determine its performance.

According to the different materials used in the covering layer, it can be divided into two categories: heavy conveyor belts and light conveyor belts. Heavy-duty conveyor belts use rubber (including natural rubber and synthetic rubber) as the main raw material, so they are also called rubber conveyor belts, and their use is concentrated in the fields of heavy industry and infrastructure construction. According to different uses, rubber belts can be subdivided into transmission belts and conveyor belts. The former is used for mechanical transmission, and the downstream is mainly used for industries that require transmission such as automobiles and agricultural machinery; the latter is used for material transportation, and the main demand is concentrated in coal mines, The five major industries of steel, ports, power and cement. Lightweight conveyor belts mainly use polymer materials, which are mainly used in light industrial fields such as food and electronics.

The rubber conveyor belt industry has a long development history, relatively mature technology, and the supply of raw materials and the stricter environmental protection requirements of developed countries. At present, its production areas are mainly developing countries. China is the world’s largest rubber conveyor belt manufacturer. country.

At this stage, the world conveyor belt industry is accelerating its transfer to developing countries.

China is the main country to undertake the transfer of the international conveyor belt industry. The main reasons are: domestic production costs are far lower than developed countries; China has become the world’s largest conveyor belt production and consumption market, and the market growth rate is still at the forefront of the world. The domestic conveyor belt industry With rapid development, some companies in the industry have been able to produce products with performance and specifications that have reached the international advanced level, and have the ability to undertake industrial transfer.

China, Brazil and other newly industrialized countries are in the process of urbanization and industrialization. The rapid development of their heavy and chemical industries has provided a rapidly expanding market for the conveyor belt industry and attracted many companies to enter the conveyor belt industry. The main characteristics of the conveyor belt market in newly industrialized countries are rapid market growth, numerous production companies, and low industrial concentration. At present, newly industrialized countries have become the main producer and consumer of conveyor belts in the world. Among them, China has become the world’s largest producer and consumer of conveyor belts, with output accounting for about one-third of the world’s total output.

The emergence of conveyor belts has provided a great boost to industrial production and promoted the development of industrialization to a large extent. Everyone should know that China is a country with a large demand for conveyor belts, so our country is also a big country in the production of conveyor belts.
