What is the difference between conveyor belt and transmission belt?

2021-11-15

Conveyor belts, also known as conveyor belts, are rubber, fiber, metal composite products, or plastic and fabric composite products used in belt conveyor belts to carry and transport materials. Conveyor belts are widely used in cement, coking, metallurgy, chemical, steel and other industries where the transportation distance is short and the transportation volume is small. Belt conveyors are widely used in agriculture, industrial and mining enterprises and transportation industries to transport various solid block and powder materials or finished items. The conveyor belt can be continuous, high-efficiency, large-angle transportation, and the conveyor belt is safe to operate. The conveyor belt is easy to use, easy to maintain, low freight, and can shorten the transportation distance, reduce the project cost, and save manpower and material resources.

The transmission belt is the power generated by the rotation of the motor or engine of the prime mover, which is transmitted to the mechanical equipment by the belt through the pulley, so it is also called the power belt. It is the core connecting component of electromechanical equipment, with an unusually wide variety and a wide range of uses. Transmission belts are inseparable from giant motors of several kilowatts, to micro motors of less than one kilowatt, and even precision machinery such as household appliances, computers, and robots. Its biggest feature is that it can be freely shifted, far and near transmission, simple structure, and easy to replace. Therefore, from primitive machinery to modern automatic equipment, there are transmission belts. The products have undergone many changes and the technology has become more mature.
