Conveyor belts for the rubber and plastics industries are specific pieces of equipment designed to perform multiple functions.
In the rubber industry, these belts are used to evacuate seals and products from the moulding process and to sort non-conforming products in quality control departments.
They are equipped with fume extraction covers, ventilation fans, and heat protection belts to ensure the operator’s highest level of safety and protection.
In plastics processing, conveyor belts are used to evacuate parts and sprues from production machines such as injection moulding machines, blow moulding machines, extruders, and thermoforming machines. They also transport shredded plastic to the outside of granulators or shredders, allowing the operator to control the process automatically.
Typically, these conveyors are equipped with belt conveyors with transport rails, loading hoppers, and discharge chutes with adjustable inclination and electronically variable speed using inverters. This ensures efficient management of the production process and optimization of processing times.
