Conveyor Types and Uses

Konveyör Çeşitleri

Before moving on to the section of conveyor types, we want to talk about the functions and classifications of the conveyors in business.

As technology improves, the speed of production machines and the area they cover grows. As the speed of production machines and the area their covered increases, the product name that needs to be transported increases and the distance to be transported increases. The increase in production leads to an increase in the input amounts of raw materials, packaging, pallets, etc. required to produce the products as well as the production of raw materials and packaging materials for enterprises to the side of the production machine.

10 years ago, a facility that filled 500 charcoal hours a day could cover a total area of 200 square meters and fill up 14 pallets in one hour. Today, the facility that filled 3,000 carboys can cover 2000 square meters and fill 84 pallets with demijohns. As a hero of this rapid development, there is a secret hero as well as production machines; which we call it a conveyor.

We do not exaggerate if we define conveyors as the breath of life for an operator. The more comfortable and smoothly we can breathe, the more healthy we can be, and the more trouble the conveyors operate in the business, the more production and shipment can be made.

Conveyors which are hidden and are  invisible heroes of the enterprises can carry raw materials, packaging materials,  folding materials, palletizing materials, stretching materials according to the sizes of the enterprises and automation systems; raw products; primary packaging products; made products and stretched products.

Conveyor Types

The Conveyors of different types and the types which are produced for transporting the above mentioned products in different specifications and the main classification can be made as follows:

Types of conveyors according to their product classes

Types of conveyors according to the type of products they carrying

Types of conveyors according to production types

Types of conveyors according to operation directions and directions

Types of conveyors according to their product classes:

Conveyors conveying raw material

Conveyors carrying the productive packing material

Conveyors carrying the produced raw product

Conveyors carrying the product in the primary packaging

Conveyors carrying the stored product

Conveyors carrying collapsed products

Conveyors carrying palletised product

Types of conveyors according to their product types:

Conveyors carrying powder-type micro-granular products

Conveyors carrying granule type products

Conveyors carrying parts such as gravel, rock, stone, mine

Conveyors made of chocolate, confectionery, tablets, pens, cups, etc. but carrying materials not in the primary packaging

Conveyors carrying products in primary packaging such as sachet tea, packed tea, toothpaste, glass water, bottled water, boxed milk, building chemicals, detergents, cement

Conveyors carrying secondary packaging such as chocolate box, toothpaste box, pouch tea box, chewing gum box, which are formed by entering into the box that will enable the consumer to directly receive small items in the primary packaging

Conveyors carrying chiseled or chiseled products, which are referred to as tertiary packaging, which can be transported in a wholesale-retail trade after being packed as a secondary packaging

Conveyors carrying palletized products to enable transportation of products in tertiary packaging by trucks, trucks, trains, etc.

Types of conveyors according to production types:

Conveyors carrying products by air or vacuum

PVC-plated, rubber-covered, line-type braided, etc. conveyors carrying products with tapes

Polypropylene, polyethylene, polyamide, nylon, etc. conveyors carrying products with modular bands

Rollers (metal, plastic, rubber coated, wrapped, etc.) and product conveyor

Chains (raw chain, metal ear chain, wooden ear chain, etc.) and product conveyor

Conveyors (accumulation, accumulation conveyors) that can continue to work under the product when it is stopped,

Types of conveyors according to work direction and direction:

  • Straight conveyors
  • Rotated conveyors
  • Curved conveyors
  • Rotary conveyors
  • Direction changing (Cartesian) conveyors
  • Combined conveyors

Factors such as size, type and varietal differences of produced or transported products, differences in size and size of production or storage areas, single or multiple floors of buildings or places, open air or enclosed environment, differences in product such as food, abrasive, it requires the production of conveyors in many different varieties. The following points should be taken into account when choosing a conveyor with this requirement:

  1. Corrosive property of the product to be transported (acid, base, salt, neutral, etc.)
  2. Regulation specifications of the movable product (food, medicine, detergent, explosives, etc.)
  3. The reflex (bending, tipping, hanging, tearing, breaking, etc.)
  4. The process characteristic of the transported product (hot, cold, fluid, adhesive, pollutant, etc.)
  5. Sizes and weights of the product to be transported
  6. Feeding and discharging process characteristics of the movable product
  7. Capacity of the product to be transported (nominal at the minute, minute volume at the minute, weight at the minute, etc.)
  8. Reflex properties of product and conveyor system during conveyor stand-up during conveyance or between conveyor
  9. Movable distance and route feature
  10. Difference in elevation (elevation) between beginning and end of moving area
  11. Production, process, cleaning, open area, closed area, etc. of the area where the conveyor is located. features
  12. Occupational safety requirements
