Slider Belt Conveyors
Learn the basic concepts of conveyors. A �conveyor� is generally defined as a horizontal, vertical, or inclined mechanism for transporting materials, packages, or products in a designed path with a planned loading and discharge point. Conveyors are classified by function and/or the material conveyed. The conveyors discussed in this training are called slider-bed (or sometimes slider-belt) conveyors, because the carrying run of the conveyor belt slides over a metal frame (instead of rollers).
